The frequent flyer program Iberia Plus is currently offering a 2-for-1 deal, i.e. you only need 50% of the required miles. The fees & taxes, which are relatively low with Iberia Plus, will, however, have to be paid in full.
There’s a downside: It is a requirement to be a Spanish, Italian, or French resident, and to have been a member before December 16, 2020. You could simply change your account’s address and profit from the discounted award flights, but it does bear a certain risk.
The offer is bookable until December 23, 2020 for trips between January 15 and June 15, 2021 (except for flights between March 25 and April 12). There are no limitations regarding the routes and you can book economy, premium economy, or business class flights.
Award flights are usually quite flexible at Iberia Plus. A rebooking is possible before departure for a fee of €25 (+ the difference in taxes, fees, and Avios), and you can also get a full refund of the money and Avios paid for €25.
Avios tactical redemption December 2020
Offer of 2×1 when you spend Avios to buy redemption tickets for two or more people in the same booking.
For each two redemption tickets you buy, Iberia will give you one of them for free. If you buy three tickets, you only get one of them for free.
The promotion does not include any taxes or surcharges.
Promotion valid for flights (one way or return) on all routes operated by the Iberia Group (Iberia, Iberia Express and Iberia Regional Air Nostrum), in any redemption class, purchased between 16 and 23 December 2020 to travel between 15 January and 15 June 2021 (inclusive), excluding the period from 25 March to 12 April 2021 (inclusive).
The promotion does not apply to the following: Air Shuttle operated by the Iberia Group, certain routes operated by Iberia Regional Air Nostrum (all flights to/from Melilla and all routes between the Balearic Islands), flights operated by Vueling and flights operated by LEVEL.
This promotion is personal and non-transferable, and is valid except for typographical errors or omission. It may not be combined with any other Avios redemption promotions valid during the same period. The availability of flights and routes is subject to the current regulations.
For more information, please visit our website www.iberia.com or call your Iberia Plus service centre.
Exclusive promotion for Iberia Plus members who live in Spain, Italy or France and who joined the programme before 16/12/2020.
Business Madrid – New York for 2 at 34,000 + €178
The offer is particularly interesting for long-haul business class flights. A oneway flight from Madrid to New York in Iberia’s business class can be purchased for only 34,000 Avios + 2 x €89 taxes & fees:
If you don’t have enough Avios on your Iberia Plus account, you can transfer Avios from your British Airways Executive Club account. Avios & Money sadly does not work for this poromotion.
Required Miles in Business Class
Here are the required miles for an award flight in business class per passenger:
|Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Quito, Bogota, Medellin,|
Panama, San Jose, Havana, Miami, Chicago
|Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Lima, Guayaquil,|
Mexiko City, San Francisco, Shanghai
|Santiago de Chile,|
A nice deal, but sadly you may have to lie about your residence to get the generous discount. If you take the risk and can fly until the end of June 2021, you’ll get a very cheap award flight.
