Iberia Express is offering 25% off Avios redemptions from London Gatwick to Madrid.
This means that Economy tickets are reduced to:
- 5,625 Avios each way on peak dates (was 7,500)
- 4,875 Avios each way on off-peak dates (was 6,500)
You need to book via Iberia Plus which means moving your Avios across from BA via ‘Combine My Avios’. Following the Avios IT upgrade last Christmas, this should work OK as we explained here.
Details are on the Iberia website here. You need to book by 30th April and fly by 15th June. Blackout dates are 8-9 April, 13-18 April, 29-30 April, 1-2 May and 13-16 May.
The deal only applies to Iberia Express services and not those on British Airways or Iberia itself.
Our review of Iberia Express business class (yes, it has one) is here. Our past Madrid hotel reviews include Hyatt Centric here, Aloft Grand Via here and the impressive Gran Melia Palacio Los Duques here.
Whilst less relevant to HfP readers, the 25% discount also applies to flights from Madrid to Santiago de Compostela, Seville, Malaga, Las Palmas, Toulouse, Nice and Lyon.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (May 2022)

You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
