Is it possible to buy Air France Lounge access with blue credits?

You can pay with blue credits for Air France lounge access in Paris. Lounge access is available one year in advance for Paris Orly Airport (ORY) and three months before travel for Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) as long as seats are available for sale*.

Access to the lounge can be added via the Air France and KLM website during the reservation, check-in or via My bookings (for Air France) and My Trip (for KLM).

If you want to add Air France Lounge access to an existing reservation and pay with blue credits, please follow these steps:

* The online paid lounge access feature is only available with blue credits when it is offered during your reservation. The system monitors the availability, if lounge access is not an option; it is not available and cannot be paid with blue credits.
