Boarding by zone

Our flights are boarded according to zones. Read the guide to learn more.

What is a zone?

You are assigned a zone number depending on your cabin and Flying Blue status. You will find the zone number on your boarding pass. Our crew will let you know when it is time for you to board the flight, starting with zone 1 and going up to zone 5.
