Air France KLM Flying Blue Promo Rewards Availability Update – Toronto to Europe for 90,000 miles or less in Business Class

At the end of April we brought you the details of Air France KLM’s Promo Rewards for May and we promised to give you some examples of the offers once the were available for booking.

To recap, with promo rewards you get a discount on the number of miles required to redeem for flights with Flying Blue on Air France, KLM and sometimes their other partner airlines like Kenya Airways. The discount ranges from 20 to 50% off the regular
amount of miles required to redeem
for these flights. This month only one Canadian city is included and that is Toronto at 25% off business class.

Offer details

May 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 May 31  for travel Jul 1 – Aug 31, 19
This month’s Canadian cities:
Toronto – 25% off business class

Here are the mileage requirements for flying from Toronto to Paris (the mileage amount will vary for other
cities in Europe)

And an example of some of the business class availability from Montreal to Brussels:

 You can see lots of availability on the way out but on the return….. not as good:

Total miles and fees come to 79,500 miles and 452.37EUR – less than the 90,000 advertised!

There are also plenty of other options to choose from especially from Toronto to Europe (availability on the way back is not so good so you could look at doing this offer one way and then a different airline or redemption option on the way back) Here are just a couple of examples:

Toronto – Prague

Toronto – Zurich

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) That means 120,000 points will get you to 50,000 miles which is
enough to cover a one way flight between Canada and Europe in Business

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 and then you could
also grab the Marriott Bonvoy Business American Express Card as it also has 50,000 point sign up bonus. You
would then ultimately be able to have 100,000 points not
including what points are earned on spending. Of course timing of
getting the card(s) now, spending and getting the points will likely not
happen for this month but it sets you up for future offers.  Need to
grab two tickets for an itinerary? You could choose to
get one Marriott card for yourself and one for your partner or spouse and you’ll have a lot more points!
