60,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points = 25,000 Flying Blue Miles

Finally, using the Marriott Bonvoy program to get Flying Blue miles is an indirect way to convert Membership Rewards points into Flying Blue miles:

Conclusion

Is it worth buying Flying Blue miles? As with any miles & points purchase, this will depend on the circumstances. You’ll need to decide based on the reward flights you plan to book soon.

The Flying Blue program does not have a fixed reward chart. On the other hand, you can get some good deals with the recurring event “Promo Awards“.

For example, in October 2019, I was able to get a business class flight between Toronto and Paris for only 32,000 Flying Blue miles one-way on the new Air France A350!

If I had bought Flying Blue miles as part of this promotion, that same flight would have cost me about 500 euros (plus taxes).

This promotion may, therefore, be interesting for some!
