Each month Flying Blue, the Air France / KLM frequent flyer scheme, release a limited amount of discounted award tickets. January Flying Blue promo awards are now live, and you can book well into 2018.
Promo Awards by Flying Blue could be one of the best redemption options even if you don’t already have a Flying Blue miles balance. The scheme allows you to book discounted award tickets, typically between 25-50% less than the normal redemption rate. Even if you don’t have a balance with Air France or KLM you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points directly into the scheme (1 American Express Membership Rewards point = 1 Flying Blue mile). Perfect if Flying Blue announce a discount on a route you want to book.
This months Promo Award fares are valid for bookings made between 1st and 31st January 2018, for travel between 1st March and 30th April 2018. Both one-way and return flights are bookable. All Flying Blue members have the opportunity to book the discounted seats, which have a limited availability.
