KLM has launched an online knowledge exchange community for Air France/KLM Flying Blue members as a sister site to their Club China site. Club Africa is for members who conduct business in Africa. These online communities offer instant access to special-interest groups and established business networks in China and Africa, enabling members to share valuable contacts. KLM hopes the Web sites will provide inspiration for new ideas and business proposals, and a platform for improving businesses in these emerging markets.

Golfers will enjoy visiting the Flying Blue Golf Club at www.fbgolfclub.com, an international online community where traveling golfers can meet, share experiences, exchange tips and get news of special deals related to golf and travel. As well as social networking, visitors to the site can use their miles to purchase golf-related merchandise.
Of interest to those who like to earn miles when shopping online, Air France’s new e-shopping Web site is open for business. As a Flying Blue member, you can shop for an extensive range of Air France merchandise and earn award miles on every purchase you make. The site features over 400 items including luggage, travel accessories, clothing, tableware, watches, pens and more. Currently, purchases can be mailed within Europe with plans for worldwide delivery later this year. To browse the selection, visit http://www.airfrance.com, click “Customer Service” and select the “E-shopping” section.
