Air France-KLM Flying Blue has just released their October promotional awards for December 1 – January 31, 2019-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 October 2018 Promo Awards (note that we 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 are some reasonable offers between Europe and North America for travel in December and January. The bright spot in Asia this month is Osaka.
