Double PartnerPlusBenefit points to North America
PartnerPlusBenefit is the small business scheme for the UK and Ireland run by 11 of the Star Alliance airlines. This includes Lufthansa and Swiss.
I wrote about PPB in detail in this article. It is a LOT more flexible than the British Airways On Business scheme which I reviewed here – although you’d be daft not to join On Business too if you have a VAT registered UK business. Click here to sign up – you’ll receive 1,500 BenefitPoints just for joining.
Until 30th April, you will receive double BenefitPoints when you fly from the UK or Ireland to the US or Canada on Air Canada, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS and United Airlines.
You need to register for this offer in your PPB account online.
