Air France-KLM Flying Blue August Promo Awards For October 1 – November 30, 2018 (Transatlantic Starting At 11K)

Air France-KLM Flying Blue has just released their August promotional awards for October 1 – November 30, 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%).

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

Here are the eligible routes for August 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 used to show the cleaner list

The Air France page no longer shows the destinations (makes no sense) but rather discounted amounts for various destinations. The KLM one shows the discounts but not actual mileage amounts (just nust).
