Flying Blue Promo Awards

The Flying Blue Promo Awards offer a monthly rotating list of discounted award destinations for the Flying Blue airlines —KLM and Air France. Each month has discounts of up to 50% on specific classes of service to/from certain cities.

Flying Blue also has Special Edition Promo Awards, which are deals it occasionally releases in addition to the monthly promotion.

This promotion can be an especially lucrative way to use your transferrable points when there is an Amex transfer bonus and right now (through Nov. 30, 2019) you can transfer Amex points to Flying Blue with a 25% bonus, so you’ll get 1,250 Flying Blue miles for every 1,000 Amex Membership Rewards points you transfer.

October Flying Blue Promo Awards

Book by: Nov. 30th 2019

Travel dates: Jan. 1st 2020-Feb. 29th 2020

Terms and restrictions: Promo awards are valid for one-way or round-trip flights and cannot be changed, canceled or refunded.

Discounted award flights to North America are available to/from Europe and:

  • Chicago in business class for 29,000 miles each way
  • Houston in economy for 21,750 miles each way
  • Houston in premium economy for 43,125 miles each way
  • Mexico City in business class 48,750 miles each way
  • Minneapolis in economy 14,500 miles each way
  • Vancouver in premium economy for 28,750 miles each way

Watch out for the taxes and fees for Flying Blue awards because they are high and often you can find cheap cash fares to Europe (especially over the winter). The fees on your award will be higher returning from Europe. You can expect fees to fall in these ranges for each class of service:

  • Economy – $230 round-trip
  • Premium economy – $369 round-trip
  • Business class – $550 round-trip

This sale also covers many other routes worldwide and throughout Europe, so it’s worth checking out the promotion page and doing a little research to see if anything interests you.

Anyone else having issues pulling up the promo rewards? Saw they were available earlier this month but not seeing any results anymore…

You got me all excited and I can find nothing at 26,500 from Seattle to Europe. I’ve tried several destinations in Jan. What am I doing wrong??

Travel dates between September 1 to October 31, 2019 🙂
