Air France – KLM Flying Blue launched its February Promotional Awards on Tuesday this week (read more here), and they were supposed to be only for Economy and Premium Economy flights.
There are, however, some business class awards on Sale for travel through July 31, 2022, from select North American destinations (US, Canada & Mexico) served by Air France and KLM. You must ticket these by February 28.
You can access Flying Blue here.
Destinations On Sale (there could be others):
- Mexico City
- New York
Helsinki – Mexico City
Finland requires more miles to/from than most other destinations in Europe.
Miami – Madrid
Montreal – Budapest
New York – Nice
Milan – Chicago
Remember that these awards should be available to/from what Air France & KLM considers Europe, including North Africa and part of the Middle East:
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.
After a cursory look, it seems that these business class tickets are on sale from/to the same cities that appear on the Flying Blue Promo Awards this month, but they haven’t clarified that some, if not all, are also available on business.
I remember when a few years back, the number of miles Flying Blue required for its transatlantic awards was nuts, but they now seem relatively reasonable, even at the full standard rate, considering all the devaluation that has taken place with other programs.
