It is possible to combine Avios earned from one program with the other, which means we can transfer the Avios from Iberia Plus and British Airways Executive Club, both these programs are transfer partners with American Express.
This is especially useful when there is a transfer bonus with one partner, but you would like redeem Avios with the other partner.
There are 3 ways to transfer Avios between the Iberia Plus and British Airways Executive Club account.
1. Transfer initiated from British Airways Executive Club.
- Login to your British Airways Executive Club account
- Click Combine my Avios on the menu
- Choose and login to your Iberia Plus account.
You could notice that there is only an option to transfer the Avios out to Iberia Plus, this is because of my household account with British Airways Executive Club. You do not need to disturb your household account, this can be addressed with option 3.
2. Transfer initiated from Iberiaplus
Login to your Iberia Plus account
Select “Combine my Avios”
You would see similar screen as defined in process 1. You should now choose British Airways Executive club and log in ti be able to transfer Avios. If your British Airways Executive Club is a Household account, you would only have the option to transfer Avios from British Airways Executive Club to Iberia Plus.
3. Transfer Avios through Avios.com
You can register for an account with Avios.com. Note that you can register for the account with an UK address only. Once you have set up account with Avios.com, you can transfer Avios from British Airways Executive Club to Iberia Plus and vice versa.
