Different award types for different needs

When you have earned a certain number of Award Miles, the best thing to do is to spend them and book a flight! The number of Miles you’ll need depends on your destination, travel class and the flexibility of your travel dates. There are four different types of award tickets. So, whatever your preferences, you will find a ticket to suit you.

Classic Awards

Yellow and pink suitcases

Our Classic Awards are flight tickets that can be booked for flights with AIR FRANCE, KLM and any of our airline partners to all destinations in exchange for Award Miles. You can find the required number of Miles in the Miles Finder. Of course, you spend fewer Award Miles for an Economy Class ticket than for a ticket in Business Class.

  • Available for all Flying Blue members, to all destinations

  • For one-way and round-trip flights with AIR FRANCE, KLM and partner airlines, subject to availability

  • Possible to combine several flights and airline partners on the same ticket provided that the transfer time between the flights is shorter than 24 hours

  • Classic Awards may be cancelled or modified for a fee of € 45

Promo Awards

Save up to 50% on Award Miles with our Promo Awards, available exclusively online! Check the website regularly as the new Promo Award destinations can be booked online as of the 1st of every month. There are now more award tickets available – especially in Economy Class – thanks to a greater choice of routes. This will make it even easier to combine a Promo Award flight with another flight, especially because you can book as early as three months ahead of the travel period. Plenty of time to prepare your trip!

Flex Awards

Flex Awards are tickets that give you more flexibility in your travel dates and that can be modified without charge in case your travel plans change.

  • For tickets with AIR FRANCE, KLM, Kenya Airways, and Tarom

  • The number of Miles required depends on the class of travel and destination

  • Available for all Flying Blue members

Upgrade Awards

Our upgrade awards offer you the chance to enjoy the privileges of Premium Economy, Business Class or First Class on a flight with AIR FRANCE, KLM or most of our SkyTeam partners. The number of Miles needed for an upgrade award varies per booking class: the higher the booking class of your regular ticket, the less Miles you need for an upgrade to the next class of travel. Upgrade awards can be booked online via My Trip, by telephone via the Flying Blue Service Centre or by visiting one of our ticket offices.

  • Available to all Flying Blue members, to all destinations, but subject to availability and on a per-flight basis

  • For flights with AIR FRANCE, KLM and most SkyTeam partners

  • Only one class upgrade per flight possible (for example, from Economy to Business, or from Business to First Class)
