Flying Blue, the loyalty program of Air France and KLM, offers a number of promotional awards on the first day of each month. The typical discount is around 20-25%, but they can be as deep as 50%. Promo Awards are mostly for economy flights, but a few awards in business class are usually available.

FlyingBlue October 2017 Promo Awards

Flying Blue October 2017 Promo Awards are bookable online, valid for bookings made between October 1 and October 30, 2017, and travel between December 1, 2017 and January 31, 2018. (except for New York to Paris Orly through December 31, 2017). This month’s promo awards will get you 25% off the business class awards to or from North America:

With the 25% discount, you can get to Europe for just 93,750 miles roundtrip in business class (Instead of 125,000 miles). There are limited availability around Christmas but if you are flexible on dates, you might be able to find seats.

The promo periods are during the winter, so  it is not surprising to see several Canadian cities are included in the sale just as September promo award. Once again though, it’s disappointing to see that New York is the only city in U.S. on the list. The great thing about Flying Blue Promo Awards is that you can use them to travel anywhere within Europe, including Israel! The downside is that you cannot add a domestic segment on Alaska or Delta airlines to reposition.

Here are the terms and conditions of promo awards:

  • Reservations must be made exclusively on or (except for bookings for children, infants and minors, who are not authorized to book an award on the website).
