When hunting for award space, Atlanta doesn’t normally get as much love as airports like Chicago or New York. However, if you live in or near the Peach State’s capital city, you’re in luck.

We found some fantastic business class award deals from Atlanta to some of the biggest European cities this winter, available for up to 8 people!

Let’s take a look at the details.

Award Deal — Details

What better way to kick off the new year than with a trip to Europe? Not only are these flights a bargain, but you can also find excellent hotel deals during the off-season.

  • Class: Economy and business
  • Route: Atlanta (ATL) to Amsterdam (AMS) and Paris (CDG)
  • Flight Number: AF681 and KL622
  • Cost: As low as 12,000 miles (economy) and 55,000 miles (business)
  • Outbound Dates to Amsterdam: January 15, 17, 18, 22-25, 31
  • Outbound Dates to Paris: February 11, 13-15, 17, 21-22, 25
  • Inbound Dates from Amsterdam: January 16, 17, 22-24, 28-31
  • Inbound Dates from Paris: February 12, 13, 20, 27

Booking Economy Class From Atlanta to Europe

You’ll want to head to Virgin Atlantic’s website and search for either route. Don’t forget to display the price in points rather than cash.

For example, you’ll find that Air France operates 3 nonstop flights from Atlanta (ATL) to Paris (CDG). All 3 routes are bookable for just 12,000 Virgin Atlantic Flying Club points and about $150 in taxes and fees in economy class.

Keep in mind that you could book these same flights through Air France and KLM’s joint frequent flyer program, Flying Blue, but you’ll be charged a higher rate (21,000–30,000 points).

Hot Tip:

Even when you’re flying economy, there are ways you can try to minimize jet lag — and it starts with picking the right flight time. We recommend that you opt for the flights that depart Atlanta (ATL) as late as possible.

Booking Business Class From Atlanta to Europe

Want to fly in a lie-flat seat instead? There’s plenty of availability in business class, too. For this deal, you’ll want to conduct your search on Flying Blue, where it will cost you 68,000 to 70,000 miles.

You can sweeten the deal even further if you’ve got Amex Membership Rewards points. Through September 22, 2023, you’ll receive a 25% transfer bonus when transferring to Flying Blue.

In other words, run (don’t walk), to book this same deal for as low as 55,000 Flying Blue miles. You’ll notice plenty of seats are available, so bring the whole family with you!

Final Thoughts

These award flights won’t last long, so you’ll want to take advantage of them while there are still plenty of seats. Whether you’ve got Amex Membership Rewards, Bilt Rewards Points, Capital One Miles, Chase Ultimate Rewards, or Citi ThankYou Points, you can book any of these deals as these transferable programs all partner with Flying Blue and Virgin Atlantic.
