New Air France/KLM January Promo Routes Available
Straight to the Point
Air France/KLM Flying Blue have released their January promo award routes!
Air France/KLM Flying Blue release promo awards at the beginning of every month. These are essentially award tickets on specific routes with discounts of up to 50%, although those 50% discounts are rare. Flying Blue has released its January awards a bit early this month. You can find the full list of eligible cities and travel dates at the above link, just scroll down until you see the ‘soon available’ routes. The booking dates for these awards are January 1, 2017-January 31, 2017 and the travel dates are March 3, 2017-April 30, 2017. Some highlights:
- Intra-Europe flights 20% off
- Europe-North America flights 25% off
- Europe-Africa flights 50% off
- Europe-Caribbean flights 25% off
- Europe-Asia flights 25%-50% off
- Europe-Middle East flights 25%-50% off
Check the website for a list of the exact cities eligible for the discount.
If Flying Blue is not your primary reward program (lol), you’ll need to transfer miles into the program before you book your tickets. You can transfer miles from American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi Thank You, and Starwood Preferred Guest.
These discounts aren’t anything huge, but there is some good value in it if you’re already planning on traveling on one of the eligible routes. The route which caught my eye the most was the one-way business class award between North America and Europe, which costs 48,875 miles after the 20% discount.
