Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Aer Lingus and AerClub

AerClub is the frequent flyer program for Aer Lingus. Like its sister airlines British Airways and Iberia it uses Avios as its reward currency.

You can find more information about spending your Avios with Aer Lingus for low-tax redemptions here. It is part of our ‘Avios Redemption University’ series that explains the basics of the Avios programme.

Our review of the Bank of Ireland Avios credit card from Aer Lingus is here.

You can read more about AerClub on the Aer Lingus website here.
