Cooperation between the frequent flyer programmes of airberlin and British Airways

 airberlin passengers can now also collect Avios on flights operated by codeshare partner British Airways. Avios is British Airways’ new currency for frequent flyers. Furthermore, these miles can be redeemed for award flights. British Airways Executive Club customers can earn and redeem Avios on flights operated by both airberlin and NIKI. The two carriers – airberlin and British Airways – have already been working together as codeshare partners since July of this year under the umbrella of the oneworld® airline alliance, of which airberlin will become a full member in the spring of 2012. Cooperation between the two frequent flyer programmes is another important step in extending this successful partnership. According to André Rahn, Director Marketing airberlin: “Both airberlin and British Airways are well known for their full service products and excellent value for money. The collaboration between the frequent flyer programmes now offers members even more advantages: They can now collect frequent flyer miles more quickly for even more attractive destinations within the airberlin and British Airways route networks.” 




Gavin Halliday, British Airways’ Area General Manager Europe and Africa, said: “Today’s announcement continues to demonstrate how our relationship with airberlin continues to deliver value to our customers. We look forward to airberlin becoming a full member of the oneworld alliance next year.”
