Flying Blue Promo Rewards


I love Air France/KLM for getting to Europe on points and miles. One of the reasons is the Flying Blue Promo Rewards that come out on the first day of every month. Check out my post detailing the four reasons I love Air France. These are such good deals, so I will update this post monthly to let you know the very best Flying Blue Promo Rewards.

Also, remember that children ages two to 11 get 25% off Flying Blue award tickets, including Promo Rewards.

For this month, it is even better as there is a 25% transfer bonus from American Express to Flying Blue, making it the perfect time to book that flight! That means you can stack a promo reward with a transfer bonus for flights through September 23, 2023! It’s time to take advantage of a great deal on an economy ticket!



Here are the current deals for long-haul flights between the United States and Europe (ignore the one from Ottawa):

To book, log into your Air France account and look at your preferred destination. Let’s check out a flight from New York. I will look at flying into Paris and into Amsterdam.

You would select the promo flights for 11,250 miles. However, if you have American Express Membership Rewards, it gets better. With the 25% transfer bonus, you would only pay 9000 miles—crazy cheap!


Transfer Bonus

To take advantage of a transfer bonus, log into your American Express Membership Rewards account, and under your total points, select “Explore Rewards.” The following page will appear, and you want to select “Transfer Points.”

When you view all, you will see the transfer bonus for Air France/KLM:

You then click the “show details” tab to get to the transfer page. I put in that I wanted to get 11,250 Flying Blue miles (the second box) and it showed me I needed to transfer 9,000 Membership Rewards points to do that.

I would then transfer 9,000 Membership Rewards points (per ticket) to Flying Blue and book all of the tickets via the Air France website. ALWAYS remember that transfers are one way, so be sure that enough economy class award tickets are available BEFORE you transfer your points. The transfer has almost always been instant for me, but note that it says transfers can take up to 48 hours.


Bottom Line

If you plan to travel in economy class and want to go to Europe, you can’t beat the monthly Flying Blue Promo Rewards! They are one of the best deals out there, so we will update this post monthly. Let us know what crazy good deals you are able to book!

    Aloha – what’s the best airline for using points to get from US to CDG or FCO? Thanks

      Air France is great for getting to CDG, especially with the promo rewards. From CDG, you can take a cheap European carrier to FCO.
