Fly From North America All the Way to Israel in Coach for as Little as 18,750 Flying Blue Miles One-Way!

Keep in mind, there’s NO discount on the taxes & fees, which may be very high depending on the route.  Surcharges can be ~$200 at most for a one-way Business Class flight ~($400 round-trip).  So decide if the high fees are worth the miles you’ll save.

Click through the Flying Blue Promo Awards site to get the discount.  You can only book flights on Air France or KLM to get the discount (not their SkyTeam partners, like Delta).  And you must use Flying Blue miles to book your ticket!

To get this deal, you’ll have to book your flights by September 30, 2017.

Bottom Line

Starting today, September 1, 2017, you can book Flying Blue Promo Awards to Europe from 5 North American cities – Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, New York City, and Vancouver.

These awards cost fewer points than you’d pay for similar flights on Delta or United Airlines.  But taxes & fees can also be higher.  So do the math to decide if the award discount is worth the extra cash.
