Air France KLM Flying Blue Promo Awards: Canada-Europe Award tickets for up to 50% off

The latest set of Air France KLM Flying Blue Promo awards are out and this time there are only two Canadian cities included instead of the four we saw a few months ago.

What are the promo awards? The promo awards are a discount of 25-50% off the regular Flying Blue mileage requirement for select AF KLM flights in select cabins.  Due to increases in the regular award mileage requirements earlier in the year the promo awards not as grand as they used to be but overall are they are still considered a great deal when compared to the regular mileage requirements or even to what mileage would be required in other programs for a similar ticket. Here is an example of this increased rate: previously you could get a round-trip Montreal-Europe Business Class promo award ticket for 50,000 miles but now it will cost you 62,500 miles. Overall this is still a great deal but of course not as great as it used to be. To take advantage of an award ticket deal you must book your promo award ticket between Dec 29 for travel until Mar 31. More details can be found here.

The Toronto-Europe offer of only 25,000 miles round trip in Economy is a great deal and you could easily get this by transferring 20,000 Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints into Flying Blue (they'll give you a bonus 5,000 miles for the 25,000). If you have the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express that means you can get a flight to Europe for only $20,000 in spending which is virtually unheard of for any other credit card in Canada. (taxes and fees not included of course)

Here are all the offers for flights out of Montreal and Toronto, the only two cities in Canada included in this round.
