Air France-KLM has just released a slew of discounted business-class seats to Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). Tickets can be booked for only 100,000 miles round-trip plus $564 in taxes — potentially a great way to spend your Flying Blue miles.

This deal is available from late December 2024 through May 2025, so you have plenty of time to plan your trip to the City of Light. And if you want to explore France or Europe beyond Paris, you could book an open-jaw flight and select a departure airport other than CDG.

Even if you don't have Flying Blue miles, Air France allows you to transfer points from American Express Membership Rewards, Bilt Rewards, Capital One, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou Rewards and Wells Fargo Rewards to book your flights.

Tip: While it appears to be down right now, we like using the calendar view on Air France's website to check for flights. After you log in to your Flying Blue account, select "Book with Miles." Enter the search criteria, but leave the departure date field empty for your best chance to find good deals.

We're hopeful this feature comes back soon, in the meantime, happy hunting.
