Spanish airline Vueling is offering a discount on redemptions using Avios, but you will have to act quickly.

For redemptions made on 26 and 27 April 2022 for travel anytime (only for direct flights on Vueling metal) you will save 25% on the Avios required. Redemptions must be made through Vueling.com. In order to do this you will need to have Avios in either a Vueling Club account, or you can log in with your Aer Club account details. If your Avios are in your Executive Club, you’ll need to use the Combine my Avios tool explained here.

Redemptions with Vueling are different to redemptions through Executive Club. For example, rather than searching for a capacity-restricted number of ‘award seats’ on Vueling.com, you are simply using your Avios to reduce the cost of a standard cash seat operated by Vueling (fees and taxes included). The benefit of this is that you can redeem your Avios for any Vueling flight.

Unfortunately, the value you’ll usually receive to reduce the cost of your Vueling flight using Avios isn’t great — it will be a fixed value of around 0.5p per Avios, which is less than half our current value of the Avios currency. You will usually be able to obtain a redemption value of at least 1p when redeeming through Avios for short-haul flights on British Airways using their Reward Flight Saver deal.

With this limited time only 25% discount you can expect to obtain a value of around 0.7p per Avios. While this is not a great value redemption, it is not terrible if you are looking to lower the cost of a flight booked with Avios.

Vueling offers an impressive network from the United Kingdom including London (LGW), Manchester (MAN), and Edinburgh (EDI) to various airports in Spain as well as the likes of Rome (FCO) and Paris Orly (ORY).

You can earn Avios for Vueling flights booking through its website, though there is a catch in that you cannot normally credit a Vueling flight to your British Airways Executive Club Account, you can only credit it to:

  • Aer Lingus AerClub account
  • Iberia Plus
  • Vueling Club account (Vuelings own loyalty programme).
