Last year Flying Blue relaunched their loyalty scheme, moving to full revenue based miles earning. One of the worries of the new Air France / KLM frequent flyer scheme was that the popular, discounted promo awards would be removed when the scheme relaunched. Flying Blue appear to continue each month to offer new promo awards, and November Air France KLM promo awards have again been launched on time. It is safe to say that Flying Blue promo awards are set to continue.
There are appear to be further developments to the Flying Blue loyalty scheme. Generous promotions are being offered for direct flights, but there appears to be an increase when connecting, while possibly could be an error. More details shortly.
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 before 30th November 2019, for travel between 1st January and 29th February 2020. 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.
