‘Part Pay With Avios’ rolled out to Aer Lingus

Last week I ran a long ‘Avios Redemption University’ article how ‘Part Pay With Avios’ works.

I said that Aer Lingus did not have this feature, although you could use it if the Aer Lingus flight you wanted was on ba.com as a BA codeshare.  With great timing, Aer Lingus has just announced that ‘Part Pay With Avios’ is now available for flights via booked via aerlingus.com.

There are some restrictions in place.  You cannot use it on flights which include codeshare sectors and you cannot pay towards ancillary products such as fast track security and lounge access.  You also cannot use ‘Part Pay With Avios’ if there are seven or more people on your booking.

Use part pay with Avios on Aer Lingus

For a typical flight from Dublin to Frankfurt, I was offered:

  • €29 off for 4,750 Avios (0.61c per Avios)
  • €86 off for 15,625 Avios (0.55c per Avios)

….. which is poor but not surprising, given what BA, Iberia and Vueling offer when using the same deal.

To use your Avios to reduce the cash cost of an Aer Lingus flight, you’ll need to do this:

go to the AerClub page on aerlingus.com and open an Aer Club account

log in at avios.com using your new AerClub account details

use ‘Combine My Avios’ on avios.com to pull Avios from British Airways Executive Club

Book your Aer Lingus flight on its website as usual whilst logged in.  On the final payment page you will be given the chance to use Avios for part payment.

You can learn more about using ‘Part Pay With Avios’ on Aer Lingus on this page of their website.
