Flybe to End Avios Partnership
by Traveleads | February 5, 2019 | In The Air
Flybe is withdrawing from the Avios travel rewards scheme as it awaits a takeover by a Virgin Atlantic-led consortium.
Flybe has confirmed it is to end its partnership with Avios at the end of April.
Customers will no longer be able to earn Avios on flights taken on or after April 30 (even if they have already been booked), and will also no longer be able to redeem Avios on Flybe flights from this date.
Award flights which have already been redeemed for travel after April 30 will remain valid, but customers will not be able to make any changes to them after April 30.
Flybe said: “Until the closure of the programme on April 30, customers can still spend Avios and redeem them for Flybe flights operating through October, as well as on the wide range of reward flights, hotels, car hire and other travel experiences on avios.com.
“For further information on what happens to Avios after April 30 2019 customers are advised to contact Avios directly.
Flybe also states that “A Loyalty programme is very much part of Flybe’s plans and we are actively working on an exciting new programme which will be announced shortly”.
