The latest set of Flying Blue Promo Rewards are out and they’re even better than usual. That’s because award flight discounts of up to 50% are available rather than the usual 25%. That, and the fact that there’s also a 25% transfer bonus from Chase to Flying Blue right now, means you can fly one-way to/from Europe from only 6,000 points + tax.
- The latest Flying Blue Promo Rewards are offering the following discounts between Europe and the following cities in North America:
- 50% off
- 25% off
- Washington D.C.
- Salt Lake City
- 50% off
- Direct link to offer.
- Expires April 30, 2023.
- Valid on flights through September 30, 2023.
Flying Blue Promo Rewards normally only give 25% off award flights, so it’s great to see discounts of 50% when flying to/from Montreal and Atlanta.
Montreal is potentially the best option of all seeing as one-way economy flights start at 7,500 miles. There are actual tickets bookable at that price too. Ignore the 70,000 miles listed in the tab at the top (you can’t trust Air France’s website to display that correctly) – look at all the days in the next couple of weeks where you could fly to Paris for only 7,500 miles + ~$100 in taxes and fees. (Update: To see the calendar view, leave the date field blank when initially doing a search.)
In addition to there being quite a few days available in the near future at that low pricing, there’s also a ton of availability in terms of how many people you can fly on those days. Here’s availability for 8 people in economy; the price shown is the total amount for 8 people (i.e. 7,500 * 8 = 60,000 miles).
Atlanta has some great availability to Europe too. Nearly every day this month you can fly to Paris for only 10,500 miles, with dates available in July and September too. Although the tabs below show it being more expensive in May, June and August, if you’re interested in flying to Europe from Atlanta in those months, be sure to check the dates you want as those top tabs aren’t always correct.
There are some discounted awards bookable in business class too. For example, you can fly from Prague to Montreal from only 56,500 miles one-way + ~$260 in taxes and fees every month through September.
Don’t forget that Chase is offering a 25% transfer bonus to Flying Blue right now. That means those 7,500 mile one-way flights from Montreal can be had for only 6,000 Ultimate Rewards.
The business class awards above costing 56,500 miles would only require that 46,000 Ultimate Rewards be transferred over. While that’s not a screaming deal considering Turkish or Iberia (as two examples) can require fewer transferable miles for one-way business class flights to/from Europe, it’s still a decent deal, especially if award availability with Flying Blue is better than you’re finding with other programs.
