In the previous post we shared an amazing deal where you can get 50% off summer award redemptions to Europe with Air France.
Since the 50% off coach tickets with Air France promo awards applies to connecting flights beyond Paris from Boston, you can pretty much go anywhere in the European network for only 12,500 miles plus taxes and fees. This is better than the Air Lingus flight using Avios points, because unlike the Air Lingus Avios point deal, the Air France promo awards can go beyond the point to point of the promotional discounted award price.
The latest promotional offer only requires 12,500 Air France miles plus $88.85 in taxes for a one-way flight to Paris from Boston during peak summer season, but why stop there when you could go all the way to Istanbul, Moscow, Athens, or Tel Aviv? What about Casablanca? Yep, that’s included in the discounted award price too!!!!
50% Off To Tel Aviv, Moscow, Istanbul, Athens and More
Almost everyday in June or July has availability from Boston to Paris, and beyond if you are looking for it just piece an award ticket beyond Paris for the 50% savings.
For example, you can also book a one-way flight from Boston, connecting in Paris, to Istanbul, Moscow, Casablanca, Tel Aviv or Athens for only 12,500 miles plus taxes and fees.
Flight to Athens…only 12,500 miles plus $115.85 in taxes and fees.
Flight to Istanbul…only 12,500 miles plus $132.03 in taxes and fees.
Flight to Tel Aviv…only 12,500 miles plus $132.03 in taxes and fees.
