Air France – KLM’s Flying Blue has launched a sale to buy miles at a 100% bonus through September 30, 2021.
Elite Flying Blue members can purchase up to 300,000 per transaction, before the bonus, and others 100,000. In addition, there is no limit on the number of miles that elite members can buy yearly.
You can access Flying Blue’s page for buying miles here.
The price of a mile is 1.38 euro cents each.
Thoughts about Delta vs. AF – KLM award availability & pricing:
Flying Blue miles come in handy at times (the easiest to book awards is to use their app), and the only way to get access to first-class La Premiere-cabin (need to be an elite member too) that is not available using partner programs.
I have to say that I have found Flying Blue miles quite helpful as of late for award flights that I have taken. This has been surprising for me.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
During the promotional period, Elite members can receive a maximum bonus of 300,000 Miles when buying Miles, while Explorer members can receive a maximum bonus of 100,000 Miles. Bonus Miles will be rewarded on transactions made between 3 and 30 September 2021, 2359 CET +1, and will be credited to the recipient’s account when the transaction is complete.

Elite members may purchase an unlimited number of Miles, while Explorer members may only purchase or receive up to 100,000 Miles in any calendar year, unless a promotion is active in which case it is possible to either purchase or receive Bonus Miles on top of the 100,000 Miles.
