The August 2018 Flying Blue Promo Rewards are out and if you're in Canada there are a ton of options — however, New Yorker's get a win with flights to Paris in economy or 50% off. Bookings must be made by August 30, 2018. Travel dates in this month’s promotion are between September 30 and November 29, 2018.
Options For North America
In all, we're looking at a mix of economy/business and 25/50% off. Here's the breakdown:
- Economy – New York (JFK) to Paris (Orly) – 50% (just 11,000 miles one-way)
- Business – Edmonton to Europe – 50%
- Business – Calgary to Europe – 25%
- Economy – Boston to Europe – 25%
- Economy/Business – Vancouver to Europe – 25%
Other Global Destinations
When it comes to global destinations this month’s Promo Rewards include a mix of discounts from 20% up to 50% across both economy and business class. Premium Economy is the big winner this month with multiple destinations at 50% off including Bangkok and Saint Martin.
How To Work Out The Cost Of Your Award
Flying Blue has developed an award calculator to indicate how many miles the award will cost. The calculator gives the standard pricing for the award, and then you will need to discount the figure by the percentage offered in the Flying Blue promo award. As an example, Paris to Washington with Air France will typically set you back 27,500 miles one-way in Economy. With a promo award discount of 50%, you would need only 13,750 miles for a one-way promo award in Economy!
Following from the changes made to Flying Blue Promo Rewards in June 2018, you now cannot make connections and still benefit from the award, and you cannot use two promo award destinations and benefit from cumulative pricing.
Key Points To Remember
- Flights need to be booked by August 30, 2018
- 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 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.
As is the case every month with Flying Blue Promo Rewards, it is either a hit or a miss, based on your travel goals. Even if every month you have struck out, we still recommend taking a look. Given how easy it is to pick up Flying Blue miles, you should always see what comes up.
