Air France/KLM Flying Blue Promo Rewards: Fly Between North America And Europe From 6,000 Chase Points

Air France/KLM Flying Blue have rotating promo rewards every month. This month they have promo awards starting from 7,500 miles each way, or just 6,000 Chase points after the Chase 25% transfer bonus.

Travel is valid on select dates from now through 9/30 from cities like Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Minneapolis, Montreal, Salt Lake City, and Washington DC to cities like Paris, Amsterdam, and more European cities.

Promo Awards are nonrefundable and non-changeable. They also have fuel surcharges, but those are typically low.

You can get the flexible award calendar by searching for a mileage ticket with an account on airfrance.us just leaving the date blank when searching for an award ticket.

Transferring points does not extend expiration on air France

Justmeha

It does if you never credited a flight to flying blue

Yaakov

Is it for both directions or only from North America?

bigissy

are those points each way or round trip pricing

bigissy

keep getting “Sorry, there are no flights available for this combination of departure airport, arrival airport and travel dates. Please try again” if I try to see a return day.

Does one have to call to book the tix, or is it my filter just acting up?

Morad

Does anyone know why children’s ticket are not discounted with the promo awards?
Does it only apply to regular award tickets?

Anthony

I did multiple searches, but absolutely no availability comes up for any city pairs at any price when I search with or without a date, including the city pairs that you screenshotted. Any tips on how to make availability appear?

World Traveler

Dan – love the website. But this is somewhat misleading of a post. Only Montreal is at 7500 miles. Atlanta is 10500 and other US cities are more.

amit

No luck from SFO it does not show Promo price, for now i see only atlanta showing Promo Price

Joe

What good is this when the taxes+fees on an award ticket is usually as much as the cash ticket price?

Chaim F

Is this good for JFK to London?

Zack

No

Brandon

I just transferred 20k points to flying blue (instant). Then booked 2 one-way tickets BOS – NCE / NCE – BOS for 12,370 each way economy. I got the weird message too but it also gave me a record locator number. I called the phone number and had a human issue the ticket after I paid via credit card. I was on hold ~1 hour waiting for an agent.

rosen

what other cities is it relevant in Europe?

dhammer53

@rosen et al.
From NYC, they have flights from JFK/EWR, and a few from LGA. When booking each way in September, you’ll see random dates to and from Lyon France (LYS), Amsterdam (AMS), Rome (FCO) and Slovenia (LJU). For Rome, you can fly into/out of, then train it to Floence (FLR) and fly home from there. Think out of the box!!
