Announcement from Iberia (Google Translate from Spanish):
We maintain the level of all Iberia Plus customers and the On Business program in 2022
Due to the pandemic, in the last year many of Iberia’s customers have not been able to travel as much as they would have liked.
Despite this, Iberia wants to thank its most frequent customers, the Iberia Plus, for their trust and contribution to the reactivation of travel and has decided to maintain their level in the program, regardless of the number of flights they have made in the last year. This will allow them to continue enjoying the advantages of their current level in the Iberia Plus program until March 2023.
In addition, to all those who have managed to maintain or raise the level by their own means, Iberia has given them a bonus of additional Elite Points, points necessary to raise or maintain the level at the next review.
The conditions of the On Business loyalty program for small, medium-sized companies and entrepreneurs have also been made more flexible this year: all clients of the On 3 level -the highest level of the program- will maintain their status during 2022, regardless of their volume of travel and, for On 1 tier customers, the travel spend required to upgrade has been reduced to 50 percent through June 30, 2022.
With all this, Iberia wants to reward its most frequent customers, both in the Iberia Plus program and in the On Business program and, at the same time, stimulate the recovery of trips by offering its customers the greatest possible benefits.
Iberia Plus doesn’t have a rolling tier qualification period, and it is not a calendar year either. Their status qualification begins on April 1 and ends on March 31 the following year (12 months).
Surprisingly, Iberia has decided to do the right thing this late and extend members a full 12 months. They have also credited extra Elite Points for those who have renewed or raised their elite tier.
