Flying Blue, the frequent flyer program of Air France and KLM, has announced changes to the program that impact award ticket redemption.

For flights within Europe, including North Africa and Israel, Flying Blue has discontinued charging a separate fuel surcharge. Airport and security taxes and fees will continue to be collected.

In addition, the Flying Blue program is increasing the availability of award tickets within this region.

The price (in miles) for Classic Award tickets in Economy will remain the same.  However, the number of miles required to purchase other tickets has been increased, in part to reflect the fuel surcharge inclusion.

The combined Air France/KLM network covers over 250 destinations in 124 countries including 11 U.S. cities.  The Flying Blue frequent flyer program has over 19 million members and is one of the largest in Europe.
