£875 Iberia business class return tickets to Rio de Janeiro!

In response to a KLM fare sale, Iberia has launched an aggressive £875 return business class fare to Rio!

This is a very, very good deal, and makes it worth cancelling any Avios redemption you have booked to Rio in return for an Avios and tier point earning cash ticket!

Here are the rules:

You must book by August 15th

Your outbound flight must be before December 31st

You cannot route on BA flights via London but you can use TAM and potentially other oneworld partners.  You will probably be heading Amsterdam to Madrid to XXXXX.

One free stopover is allowed in each direction – this would allow you to stop in Buenos Aires or Sao Paulo, potentially.

Iberia A330 350

You can book on iberia.com.  If you want to build in stopovers, start with iberia.com and then move on to expedia.co.uk if necessary and try their multi-city tool.  Remember that you MUST start your trip in Amsterdam.

Availability is good in November and tighter at other times.  The available flights clearly show at £400+ each way in the booking engine.

If you ONLY have Iberia flights in your itinerary and book on iberia.com, you can even use ‘part pay with Avios’ to reduce the cash cost further.  An ‘Avios discount’ logo appears next to qualifying flights on the Iberia website.  You need to move Avios into Iberia Plus to do this, which means having an ‘active’ Iberia Plus account over 90 days old.

These flights will earn Avios and tier points as Iberia is a BA partner in oneworld (and, of course, is owned by the same company!).  Iberia’s business class product is very good these days and is arguably better than Club World.

    Booked it. The AMS-RIO flights via MAD came to £875 and the LON to AMS and back in economy cost £35 +8000 avios through RFS. All booked through BA phone booking.

    Will be my first thanksgiving in Brazil!

    p.s: Yes, I am from the U.S., currently based in London.
