Aegean Gives Up To 3,000 Miles+Bonus Miles For Rebooking By April 27, 2020

Aegean has sent out an interesting offer for Miles+Bonus members that rebook their flights by April 27, 2020.

Aegean Miles+Bonus Offer

Miles+Bonus offers base and Silver members 2,000 bonus miles and Golds 3,000. It is unclear if this bonus is per ticket issued or per member.

You can access this offer on Aegean’s website here.

Note that this offer is valid for travel initially booked to take place from April 1 through July 31, 2020. The future dates that you must rebook is September 1 – March 27, 2021.

Aegean is very quiet here about REFUNDS (not mentioned even once) and only refers to credit vouchers. If Aegean cancels a ticketed flight, the passenger is eligible for a full cash refund per EC 261/2004 legislation.

EU clarified that airlines must provide REFUNDS for canceled flights:

European Union EC 261/2004 Legislation & Coronavirus Pandemic

The compensation for delayed and canceled flights don’t apply during Covid-19. Passengers, however, are eligible for refunds for flights that airlines have canceled.

Conclusion

I was about to write about the previous iteration of this offer when it came out (if I recall right) with a lower number of bonus miles.

If you were going to reschedule your Aegean flights for later this year or early 2021, earning the bonus miles may make sense. You have to keep in mind that those flights are likely cheaper than what you paid for your originals ones due to high versus offseason and likely better off by opting for a CASH refund.

I have two Aegean tickets for late June and early July. I am not sure yet whether I end up using them or not. I have no doubt, however, that Aegean will end up canceling or rescheduling them, making tickets eligible for a full refund.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

1. What is the rebooking policy for flights until 31st of July?

If you have a ticket issued up until 09/04/2020 with original travel date up from 01/04/2020 until 31/07/2020, you can change it online to any future date on/after 01/09/2020 up until 27/03/2021, with zero fare difference, no rebooking fees, and up to 3,000 extra Miles+Bonus award miles, up until 27th of April 2020. In case one of the flights of your tickets is within the period 01/04/2020 – 31/07/2020, you can still change it online with zero fare difference, no rebooking fees and up to 3,000 extra Miles+Bonus award miles.

2. What about rebooking of cancelled flights?

If your flight has been cancelled, and you have already submitted a credit voucher request and you have received your credit voucher, you cannot proceed with rebooking.

If your flight has been cancelled, and you have already submitted a credit voucher request, but you haven’t received the respective voucher, then you can proceed with rebooking your tickets via call center or via your travel agent (if your initial booking was via travel agent) and take advantage of new rebooking opportunities.

If your flight has been cancelled, but you haven’t yet submitted a credit voucher request, then you can proceed with rebooking your tickets via call center or via your travel agent (if your initial booking was via travel agent) and take advantage of new rebooking opportunities.
