Earn Flying Blue Miles in Canada

Transfer your Membership Rewards Points to Flying Blue Miles

The primary method of earning Flying Blue miles in Canada is through American Express Membership Rewards Cards. You can transfer your Membership Rewards into Flying Blue Miles at a ratio of 1,000 Membership Rewards points = 750 Flying Blue Miles.

Here are the American Express Membership Rewards Cards available in Canada:
