airberlin – the best place to turn for low tax Avios redemptions – has added some new Caribbean options for Winter 2014.
As per my Avios Redemption University article on airberlin, you should be able to book a business class flight on these routes for around £75 of taxes, compared to £500 with British Airways.
Last Monday, I posted about the new British Airways direct service to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. airberlin is also ramping up its service to the country for 2014.
From November 2014, there will be two stop flights per week from both Dusseldorf and Munich to Varadero in Cuba and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. That will mean a total of eight flights per week from Germany to each destination.
airberlin will continue its existing services to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, Cancún in Mexico and Curaçao. It also flies to Phuket, with a stop in Abu Dhabi, although that service is ending in October (Etihad is taking over the route).
Seats are already available for sale on these new flights, so Avios seats should also be available via ba.com.
