Ready for an utterly fantastic deal? Air France-KLM has just released a slew of business-class seats to Europe that you can book for just 50,000 miles each way. You can book flights from various U.S. cities to destinations such as Barcelona, London, Paris, Rome and Venice, to name a few.

Aside from the incredible value of the awards, the wide open travel window is just as appealing. There is availability at these low rates for some routes from now through April 2025. That means you can book a last-minute summer vacation for a family of four for as low as 187,000 points each way (depending on the age of your children). You can also lock in your trip in 2025 and be content knowing you’ve booked first-class accommodations.

Travelers will snag these deals quickly, so decide which city you want to visit and booking as soon as possible. This is an excellent way to maximize your Flying Blue rewards.

Even if you don’t have Flying Blue points, Air France allows you to transfer points from American Express Membership Rewards, Bilt, Capitol One, Chase Ultimate Rewards and Citi to book your flights.
