Back in May of 2014, Italy’s Meridiana did away with the currency portion of their FFP (nee Hi-Fly miles) to award Avios as part of their Meridian Club program. The program is run separately much like British Airways Executive Club, Iberia Plus and the U.K. coalition Avios program. Unlike BA and Iberia you cannot transfer Avios earned via Meridiana Club to BA or Iberia (so that we can tell on their website) but those Avios can be used for flights on Meridiana, BA or Iberia at the same redemption rate you would find with BA. This means that if you have or will book and fly enough BA flights in the two week promotional period for this Meridiana Double Avios offer it may be worthwhile to credit to Meridiana Club instead of BA or Iberia. For example if your flights between January 15 and 31st would net you 2,250 Avios by crediting to BA Executive Club or Iberia Plus you would actually get 4,500 Avios in Meridiana Club and that is enough Avios for the coveted short haul one way redemption! As part of the promotion, you can also earn Double Avios on all Meridiana flights until March 31st!
