Air France-KLM Flying Blue has just released their April promotional awards for June 1 – July 31, 2018-travel.
The discount is usually from 20% to 50% off the usual number of miles required (although sometimes the discount is capped at 25%).
Here are the eligible routes for April 2018 Promo Awards (note that I now link both Air France & Flying Blue versions):
You can also book these as one-way. These are not only for originating from Europe as all the destinations are valid for both directions. Flying Blue used to divide Europe to zones 1, 2 and 3, but seems to just use the designation EUROPE for all these from now on.
Note that Europe should include all the following countries:
Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg
Austria, Balearic Islands ,Finland, Denmark, Italy, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Spain , Sweden
Albania, Algeria, Belarus, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Canary Islands, Croatia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Libya, Lithuania, Latvia, Macedonia, Moldova, Morocco, Poland, Romania, West Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Tunisia, Ukraine.
Flying Blue has changed the taxes and mainly fuel surcharges that it collects for award tickets making economy awards a better deal than they used to be. The fuel surcharge that Air France-KLM now called “carrier imposed international surcharge” is capped for premium economy, business, and first class flights as well.
Not sure if Central and South America & North America awards really are missing or if they make an appearance when KLM releases these on their Flying Blue pages (still showing this months selection).
Air France economy and business class award rates to Havana are quite decent under this sale. I am planning to visit Havana for the third time but in August and likely from Mexico.
Here are the terms and conditions of this award type:
In the event that a technical problem occurs when reserving the promotional fare or if the reservation cannot be finalised, the Flying Blue member must log on to the site and repeat the procedure.
