Air France KLM Flying Blue Promo Rewards - 50% off business class reward tickets out of Vancouver & Seattle


The newest set of Air France KLM's Promo Rewards came out today and there are a couple of great offers!  With promo awards the discount ranges from 20 to 50% off the regular amount of miles required to redeem for these flights. As you can see just by the discount this can be a very good offer if you get 50% off for Business Class! This month Vancouver and Seattle get lucky with 50% off business class tickets! All other North American cities see 25% off in business class while Montreal also get 25% off economy class.

Offer details
October Promo Rewards - Save 20% to 50% on the Award Miles usually required for an award ticket. Destinations vary by each promotional period. Full Details  Book by Oct 30 for travel Nov 30 - Jan 30, 19

Here are the mileage requirements for flying from North America to Amsterdam and/or Paris (the mileage amount will vary for other cities)


And an example of some of the availability from Vancouver to Amsterdam:

and on the return


Here's what a round trip on the above route looks like:
Not bad at all - 60,500 miles and $631.73 in fees and taxes for business class. Under the old promo awards this flight would have been 62,500 miles plus the same fees. Yes the fees are on the high side but most other programs who may have lower fees would be costing you at least 50% more miles.

But there are better opportunities for less miles for the business class offer from Vancouver:
 That's right only 53,000 miles and $677.83 for a round trip flight to Europe in Business Class. Can't get better than that unless you can find another city in Europe that may actually price lower (but we all know Flying Blue's system is really fun to deal with!)

Some other cities we have found at the 53,000 level. Remember as well you can book one ways for half this amount - 26,500 miles!


Here are some economy class options from Montreal:
There are many other possible options to check out if this works for you and if you don't have enough miles for a Promo Reward your best bet is to convert Marriott Rewards points to Flying Blue on a 3:1 basis. Remember you'll earn 5,000 bonus miles when you convert 60,000 points at a time (a total of 25,000 miles per 60,000 points) That means 120,000 points will get you to 50,000 miles - you could always transfer the small amount more to get to 53,000 for those round trips.
