Boosting Your Flying Blue Balance

If you want to take advantage of the promotion but are a few miles short, then you are in luck. Flying Blue is one of the few airlines that is a transfer partner to most major points currencies—including the newest transferrable points, Capital One miles. Transfer ratios vary from program to program, and they typically post instantly, except with Marriott Bonvoy, which can take up to three days.

Our Take

Flying Blue Promo Awards can be a little hit and miss sometimes; this month it is a hit with some great options from North America to Europe. Although a discount of 25% is not the highest we have seen, it is still nothing to be looked down on, especially in premium cabins. One thing to remember: if you see a route that interests you, it is best to book ASAP since there is limited availability and the best routes get snapped up quickly.
