Flying Blue Promo Awards: Fly Between Select North American And Europe, Israel, Or Russia From Just 13K Miles!

Flying Blue considers Israel to be part of Europe, which makes for mileage bargains, though fuel surcharges apply. JFK to Tel Aviv can be booked for as low as 25K miles in coach, 42.5K points in premium economy, or 53K miles in business class each way.

If you book an award ticket using Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles by 7/31 for travel on select dates between 9/1-10/31 you can find some great deals with Promo Awards.

Promo Awards are nonrefundable and non-changeable. They also have fuel surcharges.

You have to login to an Air France account to search for award space. On this page you can search for awards and click on “You are looking for a flight around these dates” to access the flexible award calendar.

This month’s US/Canada awards include:

  • You can fly to/from Minneapolis or Salt Lake City and Europe/Israel/Russia for 13K miles each way in coach.

Just as a head’s up I booked two of these but the second reservation went into my name instead of my son’s, I saw this immediately and called to cancel. A few minutes later I received an email stating that the ticket could not be cancelled and they were cancelling my refund of points. This went back and forth for days. I sent a copy of the email to DOT and even then it took almost a week to get my points back. After I sent copies of the correspondence to the DOT, they complied with my request for 5000 miles compensation. So, with a lot of work, I paid only 8000 mikes for my ticket. Do not be afraid to contact DOT if they try to violate the same24 hour cancellation rule. Good thing they put their shenanagins in writing.


Will not work for JFK (hidden city). Searched TLV-MSP for dates that are available for 13k. On Fri 9-13 there are seats to MSP for 13k, but not through JFK. The flight thru JFK is available for 29k

Please be more clear

There is also the bofa Air France crédit card


On the website it says 14,500 one way,
How come its bookable for 13k?

Not complaining though!!


Some dates are 12,750


How long does it take to transfer from Amex to Flying Blue?


FYI, it took literally 6 weeks for my SPG Marriot points to transfer to Flying Blue, in January. Since the merger, they are very slow.
