This promotion has ended, however, you can check out the Current Flying Blue Promo Rewards or see our guide on which points transfer to Flying Blue.

Each month brings with it new Flying Blue Promo Awards, during which you can book certain routes using Flying Blue miles at a discount that range up to 50%. Because Flying Blue is the frequent flyer program of both Air France and KLM, you can expect to see discount flights on both of these airlines.

How Flying Blue Promo Awards Work

  • Book your award flight online with Air France or KLM (phone bookings don’t qualify for the discount).
  • These sale fares are only available during December 2016, so book by the end of the month to take advantage of them.
  • Flying Blue Promo Awards are nonrefundable and cannot be changed. As usual, you’ll still need to pay taxes, fees, and surcharges.

What Are The Promo Awards for December 2016

This month’s sale is disappointing for anyone in North America. Last month, there were sales to/from 13 North American locations; this month, there are only two. Both of these only qualify for a 25% discount, so quality doesn’t make up for the lack of quantity. Neither is in the United States; you’d need to leave from Mexico or Toronto, Canada to take advantage of this month’s sales from North America.

On the European side, though, things are a bit brighter. Standouts include 50% discounts on economy flights from Europe to Aruba and Bonaire, for a total of 12,500 miles each way or 25,000 round trip.

  • Those are some amazing deals. It’s too bad that you’d have to be in Europe already to take advantage of the best ones, the 50% ones. Travel for me for the rest of the year and beginning of next year is out of the question, but I’ll have to keep on eye those promotions when I start to put on a few more international miles.

  • Jeff Markowitz says:

    Sweet deal. While I won’t use it for a trip to Europe I have coming up — I’ll use this while I’m within Europe for a side trip. Thanks.

  • I think the Caraibbean and Indian Ocean offers are fantastic deal.
    Actually, they already start with 50000 miles which is not bad, so 25000 miles for a return flight is an amazing value!

  • I am not sure why FlyingBlue promos are not targeted to India region. Anyone else have idea?

  • the fb promo deals are really unbeatable if you want to travel from the US to Israel since the program counts Israel as a part of europe and not as the (middle east) asia. a day stop in ams or cdg is on the trip might be really convenient.

  • Good deals as usually . The best is OW within Europe for 5-6000 miles , or Europe to Caribbean or US for 12500 one way .
