Flying Blue, the rewards program for Air France & KLM, has a new list of discounted awards you can book until July 30, 2018! You can get 50% off award flights for travel between August 31 and October 30, 2018.
That’s a big discount, and will save you tens of thousands of miles over other airline programs, like American Airlines and United Airlines.
Here are the details!
Flying Blue Promo Awards July 2018
Until July 31, 2018, you can book Flying Blue Promo Awards for up to 50% off the regular price!
You can book these deals from 3 North American locations:
- Washington (IAD)
- Houston (IAH)
- Montreal (YUL)
The cheapest awards start at 21,500 Flying Blue miles round-trip in coach. As a comparison, it costs 60,000 United Airlines miles to fly round-trip in coach from the US to Europe.
These prices won’t be available on every date, and the lowest priced awards can sell out quickly.
Lots of destinations in Europe qualify for this deal! So this is an excellent way to cross the ocean for cheap. And then use budget airlines to hop around to all the countries you want to visit.
Note: Depending on your route, you could end up paying quite a bit in fuel surcharges. Probably at LEAST ~$190 total. So you’ll need to factor that into the amount of miles you’re saving over other airlines that charges more miles but fewer fees.
