Air France-KLM Flying Blue Promo Rewards for March 2024

Flying Blue is the popular frequent flyer program operated and managed by the Air France-KLM group.

There is so much to love about this loyalty program — especially how easy it is to earn miles and how generously Air France releases business class award space to Paris.

The program’s beloved Rewards Promotion allow you to get mileage discounts on a handpicked selection of Air France or KLM flights every month.

Let’s walk you through all there is to know about Promo Rewards.

Air France-KLM Flying Blue has many superb features and things to love, including terrific award pricing on transatlantic flights in business class and economy class.

With Flying Blue, you can book coveted business class flights to Europe for as few as 37,500 miles one-way. It gets even better, though, because Flying Blue’s Promo Rewards can help you save 25% to 50% off your award ticket.

How does it work? Every month, a list of flights eligible for Promo Rewards is published. Consistently on this list are intra-Europe flights, Canadian flights, and East Coast US flights. And sure, while getting a discount on an economy flight from Paris to Rome might be nice, the reality is you’re probably not looking for these. You’re probably looking for long-haul flights. Luckily, Flying Blue Promo Rewards often includes long-haul flightsmaking it easy for you to save big on your journey across the pond.

Flying Blue Promo Rewards come with a booking deadline and a travel window. This means you must book your eligible flight by a specific date for travel during a certain time frame. You can book these flights as either one-way or round-trips, which adds even more flexibility to your travel planning.

Hot Tip: Promo Rewards do not discount the taxes and fees you’ll be charged on a given award ticket, so you’ll still have to pay $200 to $300 in each direction when booking with Flying Blue miles.

One of the biggest benefits of using the Flying Blue program, in general, is that you have expanded access to award availability on Air France and KLM flightsmaking it easy to find flights that suit your schedule.

How Do I Earn Flying Blue Miles?

It’s easy to earn Air France-KLM Flying Blue miles, especially from credit card spending.

That’s because Flying Blue has 1:1 transfer partnerships with all of the major flexible rewards currencies, including Amex Membership Rewards, Bilt Rewards, Brex Rewards, Capital One Miles, Chase Ultimate Rewards, and Citi ThankYou Rewards. Transfers from these currencies are usually processed instantly.

It is also a 3:1 transfer partner with Marriott Bonvoy. Whenever you transfer 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points in a single transaction to Flying Blue, you’ll get a bonus of 5,000 milesresulting in 25,000 Flying Blue miles earned.

Also, you can earn Flying Blue miles from flying on any partner airline and credit your flight to Flying Blue — that means you can earn Flying Blue miles when flying on SkyTeam partners like Delta and Korean Air, among others.
