Each month, Air France and KLM release discounted award tickets on certain routes, including flights between North America and Europe. This month, there are 3 US cities and 1 Canadian city on this list. So if you’re relatively close to any of these spots, these deals are worth a look!
Through November 30, 2017, you can save 25% on coach award flights to Europe. That’s 18,750 miles one-way in coach, for travel between February 1, 2018, and February 28, 2018, from:
- San Francisco
These fares are 11,250 miles LESS than what United Airlines and Delta charge.
Plus, Flying Blue considers countries like Algeria, Israel, and Morocco to be part of Europe. So you can save even MORE miles compared to other airlines if you’re headed to those areas.
Keep in mind, there’s NO discount on the taxes & fees, which may be costly depending on the route. So you’ll have to 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!

There are plenty of ways to earn Flying Blue miles! The 4 major flexible points programs transfer to Flying Blue at a ratio of 1:1. You can transfer:
- Chase Ultimate Rewards points – You’ll need either the Chase Sapphire Reserve, Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Business Preferred, Chase Ink Plus (no longer available), or Chase Ink Bold (no longer available)
- Citi ThankYou Points – You’ll need the Citi Prestige or Citi ThankYou Premier Card
- AMEX Membership Rewards points – You’ll need cards that earn AMEX Membership Rewards points like the The Platinum Card® from American Express, Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express, etc.
- Starwood points – When you transfer 20,000 Starwood points at a time, you’ll get a 5,000 mile bonus.
Starting today, November 1, 2017, you can book Flying Blue Promo Awards to Europe from 4 North American cities – Boston, Houston, San Francisco, 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.
