PARIS, March 23 (AFP) - Air France-KLM, the world's biggest airline after a merger last year of the French and Dutch flag carriers, is to bring together their two frequent-flyer programmes, it said in a statement Wednesday.

Air France's "Frequence Plus" programme and KLM's "Flying Dutchman" will from June be assimilated in a new programme known as "Flying Blue", it said.

The merged programme will automatically include the 10 million members signed up to the separate incentives plans, and accrued air miles will be transferred without any loss in their value.

Air France-KLM, which was born of a May 2004 merger, is part of the Skyteam marketing alliance which also includes Alitalia, CSA Czech Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Korean Air.
