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

This month's Flying Blue Promo Awards are up and running. Every month the promotion gives discounts of up to 50% on award bookings with Flying Blue. Bookings must be made by January 31, 2018. Travel dates for most routes in this month's promotion are March 1, through April 30, 2018. Usually, the awards can provide some great options for discounted award travel, although some months it offers slim pickings; sadly, this month it is the latter.

Options For North America

This month the option for travel between Europe and North America are limited, to say the least. Options for travel to the US do not exist, and options for travel to Canada are very restrictive with only two cities included: Calgary and Edmonton. Awards are in Business class and are discounted by 25%. Flights will set you back 46,875 miles one way or 93,750 miles round trip.

Other Global Destinations

Normally the promos to other destinations from Europe are quite extensive and generous, with plenty of options offering a 50% discount on awards. However, this month, similar to the North American options, the choice is poor at best. There are only 3 destinations offering a 50% discount.

  • Europe to Antananarivo/Madagascar (Economy & Premium Economy)
  • Paris (CDG) to Pointe à Pitre/Guadeloupe (Premium Economy & Business)
  • Europe to Ho Chi Minh City/Vietnam (Premium Economy)

Key Points To Remember

  • Flights need to be booked by January 31, 2018
  • Bookings only valid if made via KLM.com or AirFrance.com; phone bookings are not possible
  • Tickets cannot be canceled, changed, or refunded
  • Tickets are sold as one-way or roundtrip

Flying Blue Miles Transfer Partners

If you are short a few miles, Flying Blue has a well-developed partnership with all four major transferable point programs. You can transfer points from American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou Points, and Marriott Rewards.

Our Take

This month’s Flying Blue Promo Awards are rubbish for lack of a better word. If you are fortunate enough to want to travel on one of this month’s routes, remember you will have to hurry since space and the routes are limited.
