Save 25% on business class reward tickets between Calgary, Edmonton or Montreal and Europe with Air France-KLM's June Promo Rewards


The newest set of Air France KLM’s Promo Rewards are now listed but won’t be bookable until about 6pm ET tonight!  This month’s offering is a better than what we saw in May with more offers for those in North America however Asia and Intra-Europe options are quite limited/ With promo rewards the discount ranges from 20 to 50% off the regular amount of miles required to redeem for these flights. As you can see just by the discount this can be a very good offer if you get 50% off for Business Class! This month sees a trio of Canadian cities in the mix. You can save 25% off business class reward tickets to Europe from Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto on Air France or KLM.

Offer details
June Promo Rewards – Save 20% to 50% on the Award Miles usually required for an award ticket.
Destinations vary by each promotional period. Full Details  Book by Jun 30  for travel Aug 1 – Sep 30, 19
This month's Canadian cities:
Calgary - 25% off business class on KLM
Edmonton - 25% off business class on KLM
Montreal - 25% off business class on Air France or KLM

Here are the mileage requirements for flying from Calgary, Edmonton or Montreal to Amsterdam or Paris (the mileage amount will vary for other cities in Europe). As you can see Montreal is a real good deal even at 25% off!



As we mentioned above you can't book these just yet which also means we can't provide you with snap shots of availability like we usually do (we'll have a follow up post for that) You'll have to wait until about 6pm tonight to see availability on the routes and to book them. The mileage amounts required will vary by the location you want to fly to, for example you can usually fly to Brussels, Milan, Athens and other cities for even less than what is listed above for Amsterdam or Paris.

If you don't have enough miles for a Promo Reward your best bet is to convert Marriott Rewards points to Flying Blue on a 3:1 basis. Remember you'll earn 5,000 bonus miles when you convert 60,000 points at a time (a total of 25,000 miles per 60,000 points)

If you don't have any Marriott Rewards Points you can always look at getting the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card to top off your account. Currently the card comes with a 50,000 point sign up bonus when you spend $1,500 on the card.  Of course timing of getting the card now, spending and getting the points will likely not happen for this month but it sets you up for future offers.
