Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Earn triple PartnerPlusBenefit points when flying Air Canada

PartnerPlusBenefit, previously Star Alliance Company Plus, is the Star Alliance equivalent of the British Airways On Business scheme, aimed at companies in the UK and Ireland.

What makes PartnerPlusBenefit more powerful than BA’s On Business is that flights from 10 airlines earn points. The participating airlines are Air Canada, LOT, Lufthansa, germanwings, Austrian, ANA, Swiss, Brussels Airlines, United and TAP Portugal.

If you are flying on Air Canada via your business between now and May, PartnerPlusBenefit is running a very generous offer.

From February 1st to May 31st, PartnerPlusBenefit is offering triple BenefitPoints on all flights between the UK and Ireland and Canada on Air Canada.  Participating classes are Business, Premium Economy and – if flying on their leisure brand rouge – Premium rouge.

Unlike BA’s On Business scheme, which only lets you redeem for flights and upgrades, PartnerPlusBenefit is more flexible. As well as free flights and flight upgrades, you can also redeem for Orbitz giftcards for hotel bookings, chauffeur services to Heathrow, car parking at Heathrow, Heathrow Express tickets and FlyNet internet vouchers for long-haul Lufthansa flights.  You can even redeem for cash!

A generous sign-up bonus – a FREE business class upgrade

PartnerPlusBenefit is currently offering 1,500 BenefitPoints for signing up (1,000 BenefitPoints) and registering a credit card (an additional 500 BenefitPoints).

You need to register a credit card as this is the main method they use for tracking flight purchases made by your company. It will pick up your purchases even if you book via a corporate travel agent.

The 1,500 bonus points for signing up are enough for:

a one-way upgrade to business class within Europe, or

3 x one-way Heathrow Express tickets

€50 hotel gift cards are 1,600 points.

The sign-up page is here if your company is not already registered. Your travellers will still receive their standard miles in their personal accounts when they fly, so it is a genuine extra benefit on top.

You need to register for the Air Canada promotion via the ‘Special Promotions’ page in your PartnerPlusBenefit account.

    Are there similar schemes for non-UK/IRL companies?

      Not sure but have sent you an email address of someone who will know

      The scheme works pretty much worldwide.
      Do note however, that points will only credit when booked from the country in which the account is registered – ie the credit card address used to pay for flights. All my flights originate from the Czech Republic, but as I use a UK credit card, I need my account in the UK.
