I’ve been using award.flights for quite some time to help easily run multiple award searches on different alliances for some time. However, there was always lacking a SkyTeam search option. Perhaps the author of the plugin didn’t really redeem for SkyTeam awards. However, that is no longer! As of yesterday, Air France/KLM’s frequent flyer program, Flying Blue has been added as a option for awards.flights.
The option is still in beta, so there were some hiccups along the way and there may be potential errors while searching.
- First, add your FlyingBlue number/email and PIN to the Settings page. You can get there by clicking the Set Up link by the KL/AF option
- On your first search, you’ll have to answer a CAPTCHA before proceeding. On future searches there shouldn’t be an issue
- Use award.flights as usual!
I don’t typically redeem for SkyTeam awards either, though there is some good value in FlyingBlue and Alitalia redemptions. This change at least adds coverage to all major airline alliances to awards.flights. Happy searching!
