Bilt Flying Blue Perks

Starting on February 29, 2024, Bilt Platinum status members are eligible for 12 months of Flying Blue Gold status. This ongoing perk is available to Bilt members still striving to reach Platinum status. Additionally, the perk also automatically qualifies members for SkyTeam Elite status.

To activate the offer, Platinum status members only need to follow these steps:

  1. Tap the elite status tab in the Bilt app
  2. Select “Elite Status Match”
  3. Transfer 10,000 Bilt Points to a linked Flying Blue account to activate the offer
  4. Gold status is confirmed within three business days after activating the offer
  5. Enjoy Flying Blue Gold status for 12 months

Flying Blue Gold Benefits

This tier is the second elite status tier within the Flying Blue loyalty program.

Featured benefits include:

  • Extra baggage allowance
  • Airport lounge benefits
  • SkyPriority priority travel service
  • Preferred seating is available starting 72 hours before departure (Economy Comfort, seat in a row of 2, front section, and extra legroom)
  • Guaranteed seat in economy
  • Priority at immigration and security

These benefits, along with the SkyTeam Elite Plus perks, make it easier to enjoy elite perks and book award flights on Air France, KLM, Delta Air Lines, and other SkyTeam members.

This status match offer is available through 2024. It’s also possible to requalify again for Flying Blue Gold status in 2025 by maintaining Bilt Platinum status. The Bilt app provides more details about this promotion. It’s reassuring to know that it’s not a one-time status match like the Rent Day perks.

Bilt Platinum Priority Customer Service

In addition to the Flying Blue status match, Bilt Platinum members now have dedicated specialist customer support in the Bilt mobile app. Elite members can utilize this benefit by visiting the Support section and opening a chat window.

The New York City-based support team is available 24/7 to help members maximize their Bilt perks.

The Flying Blue Gold status match is available automatically after Bilt Platinum members transfer 10,000 points to their Flying Blue account. This status match lasts for 12 months and requalifying for Bilt Platinum Status in 2025 can also extend the gold frequent flyer status for another 12 months. This perk is in addition to the Bilt Milestone Rewards and helps make this travel rewards program one of the best for domestic and foreign travel.
