Flying Blue is the loyalty program of Air France and KLM.  Each month, they offer discounted award tickets to Europe from certain North American cities.

Starting March 1, 2017, you can save 25% on award flights to Europe for travel between May 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017, from these cities:

  • Cancun – 46,875 miles one-way in Business Class (10,625 miles less than United Airlines, 23,125 miles less than Delta) OR 18,750 miles one-way in coach (11,250 miles less than Delta and United Airlines charge)
  • Chicago – 46,875 miles one-way in Business Class (10,625 miles less than United Airlines, 23,125 miles less than Delta)
  • Mexico City – 46,875 miles one-way in Business Class (10,625 miles less than United Airlines, 15,625 miles less than Delta)

And because Flying Blue considers countries like Israel and Morocco to be part of Europe, you can save even MORE miles.  Because most airlines charge more for those areas when flying from the US.

Air France and KLM Consider Morocco a Part of Europe. So You Can Fly There for Only 18,750 Miles Each Way in Coach From Cancun, With Discounted Flying Blue Promo Awards!

But remember, there’s NO discount on the taxes and fees, which vary depending on the route.  The fees are usually ~$200 at most for a one-way Business Class flight (so $400 for a round-trip).  You’ll have to decide if the miles you save will be worth the taxes that come with your particular flight!

And you’ll need to click through the Flying Blue Promo Awards site to get the deal.

You can only book flights on Air France or KLM to get the discount with Flying Blue miles.  You can NOT fly on other SkyTeam partners like Delta or Korean Air.  And you must use Flying Blue miles to book your ticket!

To get this deal you’ll have to book your flights by March 31, 2017.

Bottom Line

You can book the latest Flying Blue Promo Awards starting March 1, 2017, from 3 North American cities – Cancun, Chicago, and Mexico City.

These award prices are much less than you’d pay for similar flights on Delta or United Airlines.  But taxes & fees can also be higher.  So take a look and decide if the award discount is worth the extra fees.
