Iberia has launched a very aggressive Avios redemption sale in business class. The choices are a bit restrictive, but there are some genuinely excellent deals here if you have the flexibility to get away at relatively short notice.
There are only 3 days left to book, until February 14th.
You MUST book at iberia.com to get these deals. This means that you must have an Iberia Plus account which is over 90 days old and which is ‘active’ (ie has earned 1 Avios) in order to transfer Avios across from BA or avios.com.
Prices are RETURN, per person, in BUSINESS:
Madrid to Bogota – 50,000 Avios + €185 tax
Madrid to Lima – 50,000 Avios + €191 tax
Madrid to Santiago de Chile – 60,000 Avios + €189 tax
Madrid to Rio – 50,000 Avios + €171 tax
Madrid to Sao Paulo – 50,000 Avios + €172 tax
Madrid to Luanda – 40,000 Avios + €150
Here are the booking rules:
Must book by February 14th
Must travel (both legs) by March 31st
Usual cancellation rules apply (ie €25 cancellation fee)
Availability is not so easy to find, so you would have to be flexible. However, if you wanted to try Brazil or Chile (Angola is perhaps best left for another day) then this is a great opportunity.
The Iberia long-haul fleet is currently split between the new flat seat:
And the old, albeit also fully flat, seat:
although at these prices you really can’t complain either way.
