As of today (13th February 2020), it is possible to redeem Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles for flights with KLM and Air France. This is potentially excellent news for Virgin Miles collectors in the UK, particularly outside London.
To keep things relatively simple and clear, below you can find the award charts for using Virgin Miles to book flights with Air France (you can find the charts for redemptions on KLM here).
Virgin Flying Club award charts for flights with Air France
Before we get to the charts, here are rules:
“Spend your miles on our Air France reward flights. All miles shown in the tables below are for a one-way flight. If a journey requires a connecting flight or stopover to reach the destination, miles are charged according to origin and destination. All prices are subject to taxes, fees and carrier imposed surcharges.”
Note that the number of miles required depends on whether you are flying on peak or off peak dates. For redemptions on Air France, those dates are as follows:
Also note that there are two different types of award chart – one for flight distances up to 1,749 miles, and a different set of charts for flights over that distance.
