Flying Blue has released its latest Promo Rewards for March 2020. Promotional offerings between Europe and North America are scarce and will likely disappoint Flying Blue members again this month. Just two U.S. cities make the new list, and no options exist for business class travel.

North American Discounts

During this month's Flying Blue Promo Rewards, enjoy a 25% discount on flights between North America and Europe. Discounts vary by city and class of cabin and include routes between Europe and the following cities:

Economy

  • Washington D.C. (25% discount)

Premium Economy

  • Mexico City (25% discount)
  • Seattle (25% discount)

Discounts for Global Destinations

Once again, the list of long-haul discounts outside North America is notably shorter than we've seen in previous Promo Rewards lineups.

Three South American cities comprise the complete list of additional long-haul discounted cities this month. Flights between Europe and Cayenne, French Guiana; Fortaleza, Brazil; and Quito, Ecuador are eligible for discounts in economy, premium economy, and business class cabins.  Enjoy a 50% discount on economy flights between Europe and Cayenne or Fortaleza. Otherwise, all South American flight options are discounted by 25%. For short-haul flights within Europe, be sure to check the city pairs for a 40% discount in both economy and business cabins (prices range from 3,600–12,000 miles).

Keep in mind that Flying Blue does not publish an award chart, but you can check how many miles are required for a given award using their award calculator.

Key Terms

  • Bookings must be made by March 30, 2020.
  • The travel window is from April 30 through June 29, 2020.
  • Bookings only valid if made via KLM.com or AirFrance.com; phone bookings are not possible.
  • Tickets cannot be canceled, changed, or refunded.

Flying Blue Transfer Partners

If you are short on miles, Flying Blue has an extensive network of partners and is one of the few frequent flyer programs that is a transfer partner of all major transferable points programs. Transfer ratios vary from program to program, and transfers typically post instantly, except for Marriott Bonvoy points, which can take up to three days. Several sweet spots exist within Flying Blue, including the monthly Promo Rewards.

Our Take

Flying Blue Promo Awards can be hit-and-miss, and we would class this month is a bit of a miss. Particularly for members in the U.S. wishing to take advantage of Promo Rewards to reach Europe. In prior months there have been discounts of up to 50% available, representing a 2-for-1 deal for traveling couples or the opportunity to take twice as many trips with the same miles for solo travelers. However, with the latest round of Promo Rewards, travelers must look outside of North America to score discounts above 25%.

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. Just keep in mind that Promo Rewards tickets cannot be modified, canceled, or refunded outside the 24-hour grace period.

Comments

  • The discount when offered should be across all the routes.

    • Unfortunately, that’s very wishful thinking. Whether it be a grocery store or happy hour at the local pub, discounts are usually targeted and limited.

  • With coronavirus travelling around the globe I prefer to wait with all the promos till summer

  • Shammy7622 says:

    Any promo is bad promo from these airlines. As they say, AIR FRANCE TAKE A CHANCE

  • Limited options from North America this month which is surprising as they could have used this months promo to increase passengers that are currently dropping due to the virus fears.

  • ron_vaughn@hotmail.com says:

    They should run more specials to fill all those empty seats!

  • I would have expected with the cut back in travel due to the coronavirus there would have been more options.

  • I hope that given the coronavirus situation their April promo will have some more US destinations. After all, the demand is down and this would be a good way to get people flying again

  • I wonder when they figure out which cities to put in the discounted promo. Next month could be completely different if travel is down. I am wondering how this summer will shape up if this situation carries on. I know that I plan on taking advantage of deals if there are any. If anything domestically I have seen some deals and am thinking I might want to take a vacation.

    Muy útil!!! Gracias por la informacion

  • Not worth using miles for these flights, they will be so cheap and so empty, save your miles

  • The promo with the non refundable and non changeable tickets is a nightmare, especially with the spreading virus right now.

  • Wow, this is a pretty sad gutted version of this promo!
    Last year I was able to fly to Europe for basically half price, and was hoping to do that again.
    I don’t live in DC, so I guess not 🙁

  • Considering the Coronavirus, maybe next round of offers could be very interesting.

  • This promo makes no sense! Cash tickets are so cheap currently, and this promo is for almost no cities. Shame.

  • With the coronavirus problem, all airlines are promoting and trying to sell futures tickets.
    I think it is a good time to buy miles in airline loyalty programs.

  • Can’t tickets be canceled? If so, I don’t think it’s wise to buy … How do we know that the air bridges will be open in May?

  • jon mitchell says:

    any ideas as to when we’ll start seeing promos for beyond summer? (I’m thinking November travel at this point)
