Avios Group today announced that they are closing UK Avios Travel Rewards Program and member accounts are mostly transferred to BA’s Executive Club.
There have always been many flavors of Avios; BA, Iberia, UK shopping scheme and more recently Aer Lingus, Meridiana and Vueling too.
You can access Avios’ page for this change here.
Avios will automatically set up Executive Club accounts for members that don’t already have one in the summer of 2018.
Seems to be forced move for many members unless they opt out and then have 6 months to use their remaining balances.
There have been partners that weren’t available via Executive Club but could be found on this Avios Travel Rewards Program. Not sure how Avios is going to reconcile this fact.
