Aer Lingus Joins Avios Loyalty Programme
Aer Lingus is replacing its Gold Circle loyalty programme with Aer Club, to be launched "in partnership" with Avios.
The announcement, which was widely expected, follows Aer Lingus' joining IAG in the summer and will mean Avios points can now be earned on British Airways, Flybe, Iberia and Aer Lingus flights.
Points will be transferred across from Gold Circle into new accounts, which will then become Avios accounts.
Gold Circle points will have to be used up by March 31, when any existing points will expire.
Aer Lingus said in a statement: "Once you have confirmed your membership to Aer Club, you will receive regular emails from our loyalty team to keep you up to date with programme developments, information and new collection and redemption partners as they come on board.
"One month prior to the launch of Aer Club you will be contacted and informed of your new Aer Club Tier membership and your new Aer Club membership pack will then be sent out to you,"
The addition of Aer Club to Avios will be welcomed by British Airways Executive Club members.
Aer Lingus currently operate flights from Newcastle to Dublin where you can connect easilly with services further away including the US.
