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:
- Washington D.C. (25% discount)
- 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.
- 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.
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.
