What are blue credits?
Blue credits are the currency of the bluebiz programme and are awarded based on your ticket price. One blue credit has a value of 1 US$. This means that if your company has saved 500 blue credits, 500 US$ are available to spend on tickets, upgrades, flight-related services or compensation of its CO2 emissions on flights. You can find more information about spending your blue credits here.
