About this partner
Member benefitsBecause GOL is an airline partner of Flying Blue you can earn:
- Award Miles
- Level Miles
Earning possibilities for Flying Blue members:As a Flying Blue member, you earn Award Miles on all GOL-operated flights that are marketed as G3, AF or KL.
The number of Award Miles you will earn depends on several factors:
1) The marketing carrier and the operating airline
The accrual scheme of the marketing carrier determines how many Miles you can earn on your flight. It is easy to find out which airline is the marketing carrier for your flight. The two-digit airline code that comes before the flight number (e.g. G3 0123) shows which airline is the marketing carrier.
If your flight number starts with an airline code from one of the Flying Blue partner airlines (e.g. AZ 0123) the accrual scheme of that specific partner (in this case Alitalia) will apply, even if the flight is operated by another Flying Blue partner airline. Please check the relevant airline partner page for more information about the number of Miles you can earn.
The below accrual percentages of GOL will apply when you take a
GOL-operated flight that is also marketed as GOL.
2) The distance flown
The distance in miles between the place of origin and destination determines the number of Award Miles you will earn. Flying Blue offers you a minimum number of Miles when the distance you cover one-way is less than 500 miles. In this case, you will earn the minimum of 500 Award Miles. Please note that the below accrual scheme also applies to the minimum amount.
3) The booking sub-class
Every cabin class is divided into different booking sub-classes, related to the fare you booked. The booking sub-class is specified as a letter on your ticket and will determine the percentage of Miles you earn based on the distance flown, as described above. Please have a look at the table below to check the accrual percentage for your booking sub-class.
G3 flight from Caracas to Punta Cana (559 miles one-way)
As a Flying Blue Gold member in Business Class – booking sub-class D, you earn:
- 699 Award Miles (559 x 125% = 699)
- 280 Award Miles (559 x 50%) - no Mileage bonus applicable
|Cabin Class||Sub-Class||% Accrual|
|Business Class||C, D||125%|
|Economy Class||Y, S, K, H, M, Q, L, V, F, B||100%|
|T, J, W||75%|
|E, P, U, A, N||50%|
|All cabin classes||I, G, R, Z, X, O||0%|
If the booking sub-class stated on your ticket is not mentioned in the above accrual scheme, it means that your booking sub-class is not part of the agreement for accrual or redemption of Miles. Unfortunately, you cannot earn or spend Miles on this flight.
Please note that the purchase of award tickets or other similar tickets will not earn you any Miles.
Flying Blue members can spend Miles on all GOL marketed (G3) and operated flights.
