Dublin, Ireland, 2021-Nov-02 — /Travel PR News/ — This month AerClub, the award-winning loyalty programme of Aer Lingus, is celebrating its fifth birthday. To mark the occasion the Aer Lingus loyalty club is rewarding its current members with special offers and prizes and encouraging new members to join as part of AerClub’s birthday month.
Ireland’s largest travel loyalty programme, AerClub, aims to provide a best-in-class loyalty programme that recognises the Aer Lingus frequent flyer, rewarding members’ engagement through innovative features, tangible value, and personalised experiences. Since the introduction of Pay with Avios in 2019, AerClub members have saved over €6million flying with Aer Lingus using their Avios.
AerClub want to thank their loyal members by offering 25% off the Avios amount for flights on aerlingus.com and the Aer Lingus app for one week only*, providing members with great value on Avios redemptions on all flights booked before 7th November 2021. Members will also be given the chance to win exciting prizes through the AerClub birthday month including retail vouchers (Kildare Village, SuperValu, Appleby, Avis, Marriott Bonvoy & Decathlon), flights, Avios, a three-night city break and more.
AerClub is free to join and enables Aer Lingus customers reap rewards not only when travelling with the airline but with simple everyday purchases.
AerClub is the first Irish airline loyalty programme to give its members the opportunity to collect Avios ‘in the air’ each time they fly, ‘on the ground’ with partners such as SuperValu, Kildare Village and Decathlon , and ‘online’ via the AerClub eStore which is home to hundreds of top name retail brands, hotels and more, across Ireland, Europe and North America, allowing members to collect Avios for every euro, dollar or pound they spend.
Susanne Carberry, Chief Customer Officer at Aer Lingus, comments:
“We are delighted to be celebrating AerClub’s 5th birthday, and what an eventful five years it’s been. Despite the travel restrictions in place over the past 18 months, we continued to reward loyal customers, something which we believe sets us apart from other airlines. It was encouraging to see members continue to use AerClub and avail of great offers and rewards.
“AerClub is a unique rewards programme as it allows members to collect Avios not just when flying but also when making everyday purchases. We work with partners that we know will appeal to our members and we plan to continue to develop the AerClub offering over the coming months, creating even more ways for our members to collect and be rewarded as they get back to travel. The AerClub team would like to thank all our loyal members for all their support over the past 5 years.”
AerClub has enlisted over 1.5m members over the past five years including members based in Ireland, the US and across the UK and Europe, with 22% actively redeeming their Avios in the last year despite the pandemic. Even with travel restrictions implemented over the past 18 months, AerClub has welcomed new members each week with 17,000 members signed up to AerClub over the past four weeks alone.
AerClub is made up of four membership tiers – Green, Silver, Platinum and Concierge. Each tier has a unique combination of travel benefits which may include lounge access, priority check in, priority boarding and bonus Avios earning. In recognition of each Aer Lingus flight taken, AerClub awards Tier Credits – the more Tier Credits collected, the quicker members will move up to the next membership tier and the more travel benefits they will enjoy.
