Iberia Express, Iberia’s regional operation, is currently offering a 50% discount on flights to Madrid in Business Class.
It is valid from Manchester, Cardiff and Birmingham. A return trip on an off-peak date will cost 15,000 Avios which is the same as you would normally pay for Economy.
You need to book by 31st May for travel before 31st July. This is not a bad excuse for a weekend break if you live near any of those three cities.
You can only book this deal via Iberia Plus. You can use ‘Combine My Avios’ to move your points from BA or avios.com into Iberia Plus.
Your Iberia Plus account must be ‘active’. An ‘active’ account is over 90 days old and has earned at least 1 Avios. You cannot open an Iberia Plus account today and take advantage of this deal.
More details can be found on the Iberia website here.

In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
