Enjoy Up to 50% Discount with Flying Blue’s New Promo Rewards

Enjoy Up to 50% Discount with Flying Blue’s New Promo Rewards
Anya Kartashova

Flying Blue, Air France’s and KLM’s joint frequent-flyer program, has announced the newest Promo Rewards, and some itineraries offer a 50-percent mileage discount between North America and Europe.

You can book the current selection of Promo Rewards through Aug. 30. for travel between Sept. 30 and Nov. 29.

Passengers departing from/to the following U.S. and Canadian cities are eligible for the promo:

  • New York City (JFK) to Paris Orly Airport (economy) — 50-percent discount
  • Boston (economy) — 25-percent discount
  • Vancouver, British Columbia (economy, business) — 25-percent discount
  • Edmonton, Alberta (business) — 50-percent discount
  • Calgary, Alberta (business) — 25-percent discount

Promotional rates apply to both one-way and round-trip flights. All flights must be booked through either or Flights booked over the phone do not qualify for the promo rates. As always, these awards are subject to availability and cannot be changed, canceled or refunded.

Keep in mind that Flying Blue has shifted to dynamic pricing when it comes to flight awards and you won’t see all routes at these promotional rates, but here are some itinerary examples to fuel your imagination.


Flight Examples

Economy flights between John F. Kennedy International Airport and Paris Orly Airport come to just 11,000 miles each way, or 22,000 miles round-trip. It’s hard to beat this kind of deal, even in the off-season. You can enjoy a cup of coffee in the brisk Paris sitting in a local cafe with fewer crowds in October.

From Edmonton, a business-class trip to Madrid is possible for just 68,000 miles round-trip. If you’re in the western United States, you might want to think about booking a positioning flight to Edmonton and continuing your journey from there in KLM’s comfy business class. Keep in mind the high taxes on these flights, but the low mileage redemption rate is enough to offset the cash copay.

How to Maximize the Discount Even Further

For a limited time, Citi ThankYou Points transferred to Flying Blue earn a 30-percent bonus. For every 1,000 ThankYou Points you convert through Aug. 29, you’ll end up with 1,300 Flying Blue miles. So, the aforementioned round-trip in premium cabin from Edmonton will set you back 53,000 ThankYou Points. At these rates, you can’t not go!

If you don’t have Citi ThankYou Points, you’re also able to transfer American Express Membership Rewards points, Chase Ultimate Rewards points and Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints to Flying Blue.
