Air France-KLM Flying Blue has just released their May promotional awards for July 1 – August 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 May 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.
There seems to be a mess on the Promo Awards page right now. The old awards are still showing on the Air France version and the Flying Blue one has been revamped.
Not sure if this La Premiere at a discount to certain destinations such as Ho Chi Minh City and Mumbai is a mistake or not?
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.
This award ticket may be used on connecting flights within Europe and on connecting flights from Europe to long-haul flights and vice-versa.
