Air France-KLM Flying Blue July Promo Awards For September 1 – October 31, 2018

Air France-KLM Flying Blue has just released their July promotional awards for September 1 – October 31, 2018-travel.

Air France - KLM Flying Blue Promo Awards July 2018

The discount is usually from 20% to 50% off the usual number of miles required (although sometimes the discount is capped at 25%).

You can access Flying Blue’s web page for promotional awards here or here

Here are the eligible routes for July 2018 Promo Awards (note that I now link both Air France & Flying Blue versions):




South America


Middle East

North America

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:

Europe 1
Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg

Europe 2
Austria, Balearic Islands ,Finland, Denmark, Italy, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Spain , Sweden

Europe 3 
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.


The Flying Blue page shows new tiles while the Air France page shows this cleaner list. Unfortunately, the Air France page is still showing the Promo Awards for June (would have shown the required miles instead only the discount percentage).

Here are the terms and conditions of this award type:

  • Available for one-way and roundtrip tickets

  • Valid for reservations made on and, not via call centres or ticket offices

  • For an international flight, you must book via customer service. Call +33 01 58 68 68 68 or click here ( to get a local phone number
