Mr Miles catch him and fly: the Flying Blue game
Today, Flying Blue, the frequent flyer programme of Air France, KLM, HOP!, Tarom, Kenya Airways, Air Europa and Aircalin, is launching “Mr Miles catch him and fly”, an online discovery game supported by the social networks.
Over 3 million miles up for grabs
The principle of the game is simple: explore the world to track down Mr Miles, the “biggest traveller of all times”, by discovering clues on Twitter and regularly logging on to the website www.flyingblue.com/mrmiles.
Until 26 June, participants will have the opportunity to win a number of prizes every day, representing a value of 500 to 10,000 Miles. At the end of the game, a prize draw will be held to select the winner among the participants who successfully tracked down Mr Miles. The lucky winner will scoop up the winner’s prize of 500,000 Miles, corresponding to more than 2 round the world trips! In total, over 3 million miles will be up for grabs.
This game is open to all, both Flying Blue members and non-Flying Blue members.
Dive into a fun-packed universe
The illustrations by Hélène Builly combine archive images and modern graphics in an original, playful style. Each time they connect to the Mr Miles game site, participants will experience a symbolic, virtual and entertaining immersion into the world of Flying Blue and will appreciate the full diversity of this attractive programme.
The game aims to strengthen ties with programme members as well as increase Flying Blue’s reputation with the general public.
