Business class deals pop up every so often — and we’ve found some great award availability to and from Amsterdam later this year.

These lie-flat seats are bookable with miles on KLM’s nonstop routes between the U.S. and its mega hub in Amsterdam, but you’ll have to act fast.

Award Deal — Details

Air France and KLM’s joint frequent flyer program, Flying Blue, has some excellent deals to get you to Europe. This time, we found a frenzy of routes bookable with points so you can fly comfortably in the sky to Amsterdam.

  • Class: Business
  • Route: Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), New York (JFK), San Francisco (SFO), or Washington, D.C. (IAD) to Amsterdam (AMS)
  • Cost: From 48,500 points and $281.90 in taxes and fees
  • Travel Dates: November 2024 to February 2025
  • Award Seats: Up to 9 passengers per route

How To Book

We’re seeing the most availability into early winter, which is considered the off-season for Amsterdam and the rest of Europe. Not only can you take advantage of these favorable points deals, but you’ll likely score a bargain on hotels and other activities by visiting this time of year.

Here are several examples of dates that are available to book at the time of writing:

  • New York (JFK) to Amsterdam (AMS): 7 dates found between Nov. 11 to Feb. 18
  • Amsterdam (AMS) to New York (JFK): 16 dates found between Nov. 18 to Feb. 21
  • Chicago (ORD) to Amsterdam (AMS): 20 dates found between Nov. 11 and Feb. 3
  • Amsterdam (AMS) to Chicago (ORD): 18 dates found between Nov. 11 to Feb. 7
  • Washington, D.C. (IAD) to Amsterdam (AMS): 9 dates found between Nov. 27 to Feb. 19
  • Amsterdam (AMS) to Washington, D.C. (IAD): 15 dates found between Nov. 7 to Feb. 12

Although KLM operates this flight, you can book these flights via Air France-KLM Flying Blue or Virgin Atlantic Flying Club.

You can transfer your Amex points, Bilt Rewards points, Capital One miles, Citi ThankYou Points, and Chase Ultimate Rewards points at a 1:1 ratio to either loyalty program.

If you book through Virgin, you’ll save some points by booking a flight for 48,500 points and roughly $280 in taxes & fees.
