Iberia is about the only airline that hasn’t yet announced a blanket status extension for its elite members.
The airline has, however, today launched a promotion to get Iberia Plus members to book by July 15 and fly between July 1 – August 31, 2020, by offering double or quadruple Elite Points (essentially elite qualifying miles).
You can access Iberia here.
You earn quadruple (4X) Elite Points for domestic or short/medium-haul flights under 3,000 miles, and double (2X) Elite Points for flights of 3,000 miles or longer.
Here is the number of Elite Points that you earn (before bonus multiplier):
Here’s the number of Elite Points that you need for a status:
Reach and keep the Plata level with 1,100 Elite Points in a year, 2,250 for Oro and 6,250 or 12,500 for Platino in two years.
Here’s a copy of the email that Iberia sent out:
We know that over the last few months, you have been affected by the restriction of flights worldwide. For this reason, back in March, we decided to make the programme more flexible so that many of our customers could maintain or increase their Iberia Plus tier level.
Today our commitment to you remains. We know that the impact of the pandemic continues to affect you in different ways, and it has led many of our frequent travellers to dramatically reduce their pace of travel. We want you to have peace of mind and assure you we are working on measures for the period 2020-2021 so that you can maintain your tier level and continue to enjoy the programme.
To begin with, we want to help you get even more Elite Points on your flights this summer. Book by 15 July to travel by 31 August 2020 and we’ll multiply your Elite Points*.
Nice bonus elite miles offer for those that can travel before the end of August and haven’t booked their flights yet. The quadruple Elite Points offer is especially good.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Offer to purchase tickets to obtain four Elite Points (x4) on short and medium-haul routes (Spain, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East) or double points (x2) on long-haul routes (IB6XXX).
In accordance with the policy for earning Elite Points in the Iberia Plus programme, only those customers belonging to the programme who meet the established requirements will obtain Elite Points, thus excluding customers who buy a ticket but do not fly.
Offer valid for the purchase of flights (one way or round trip) on Iberia group routes (Iberia, Iberia Express and Iberia Regional Air Nostrum), in any booking class except redemption classes – Business (U), Premium Economy (P), Full Economy (G), Blue (X) – from 1 June 2019 to 15 July 2020 and for flights from 1 July 2020 to 31 August 2020 inclusive.
The offer does not apply to the following flights: IB5XXX, IB7XXX, IB8XXX, and LEVEL flights.
Customers will be able to view their Elite Points on their account before the end of September 2020.
