You are currently viewing List of Avios partner airlines

Avios points are the 2nd most important for Canadian travel rewards enthusiasts and they can be used for many flights. This list of Avios partner airlines gives you an idea of your options, especially with Avios rules being so particular.

Of course, you’ll have to read our ultimate guide to the British Airways Avios program to understand this reward currency, which is a bit more limiting than Air Canada’s Aeroplan program, for example.

But there still are many opportunities to use Avios points on many airlines around the world.

 

Avios’ new airline partner: Oman Air

First, Oman Air just announced that it will join the oneworld airline alliance! 

It’s the only one of the 3 airline alliances that seems to be growing (it added Alaska Airlines and Royal Air Maroc recently, too).

This will give you even more options for using your Avios points once Oman Air completes the process to join (not to mention that Qatar Airways has adopted Avios points as their rewards currency, too).

Oman Air had recently joined the Aeroplan program as a non-alliance partner, so that partnership could be at risk, unfortunately. But the process to join an alliance is very long (we’re talking 2024), so it won’t be right away if something changes with Aeroplan, at least.

 

Avios partners in oneworld (British Airways)

First of all, as with all airline rewards programs, the primary benefit to travelers is that they can use their points on all carriers in the alliance to which the rewards program owner belongs.

For British Airways, it’s the oneworld alliance (the 2nd largest of the 3 global alliances). You can read the details of the global airlines alliances. So you’re really not limited to just flights on the British flag carrier!

Here are the airlines that are part of oneworld with which you can use your Avios points.

Now, as mentioned in our ultimate guide to the Avios program, some of the oneworld airlines are not the best because of high surcharges.

 

Non-alliance Avios partners (British Airways)

Here are the partner airlines within the British Airways Executive Club (the formal name of the Avios program) but that aren’t part of the oneworld alliance.

Non-alliance Avios partners (Qatar Airways)

Avios points can easily be transferred at a 1 to 1 rate between various separate but related programs, a feature that is unique to Avios. 

One of the most interesting is the Qatar Privilege Club from that Gulf nation’s flag carrier. 

Here are the partner airlines within Qatar Airways’ Avios program (in addition to the oneworld alliance partners listed above that I won’t repeat).

  • LATAM (Chile)

Non-alliance Avios partners (Iberia)

Spanish flag carrier Iberia’s Iberia Plus program is very interesting, especially for flights with connections (the price calculation is done with the total distance rather than by segment as is the case with British Airways’ Avios program).

Here are the partner airlines within Iberia’s Avios program (in addition to the oneworld alliance partners listed above that I won’t repeat).

Finally, by far the least interesting of the programs that use Avios points is Aer Club by Aer Lingus, the Irish flag carrier.

Here are the partner airlines within Aer Club’s Avios program (and Aer Lingus is the only program that uses Avios that’s not part of the oneworld alliance).
