What are Flying Blue Promo Rewards?
At KLM and Air France, it's possible to buy flight tickets with your Flying Blue points. Flying Blue publishes the Promo Rewards monthly, a unique opportunity where you can buy flight tickets with your Flying Blue Miles in exchange for a substantial discount.
To better understand the workings of reward flights, we'll start with an explanation of what Flying Blue is and how it relates to KLM and Air France.
What is Flying Blue?
Flying Blue is the loyalty program of airlines KLM, Air France, and Transavia. A loyalty program in the aviation industry, like Flying Blue, is a type of reward system that airlines use to reward their regular customers.
As a member of Flying Blue, you earn points (Flying Blue Miles) every time you fly with these airlines or their partners. You can then redeem these points for various benefits, such as free flights, upgrades to a better class, extra baggage, or other services.
If you've flown with KLM or Air France in the past, there's a good chance that you already have a Flying Blue account. Logging in on the websites of these airlines can only be done with a Flying Blue account.
If you don't have a Flying Blue account yet, you can do this for free via www.flyingblue.com.
What are Flying Blue Miles?
As you've already read above, you earn miles every time you fly with KLM, Air France, or partners of Flying Blue. These points are called Flying Blue Miles and you automatically collect them if you're a member.
How do you earn Flying Blue Miles?
The amount of miles you receive for flying depends on several factors. The distance, airline, and your flight ticket (e.g., Economy) weigh the most for most travelers. So, a KLM flight to New York will earn you more Flying Blue Miles than a Transavia flight to Lisbon.
You earn Flying Blue miles with these airlines among others:
- Air France
- Delta Air Lines
- Air Europa
- Kenya Airways

Airlines have certain conditions for receiving and calculating points. So, when booking a flight ticket, check if you are earning Flying Blue miles.
