Using IB Avios

Using IB Avios

  1. yaboobie

    Hi Guys,

    Can I use IB Avios miles to book flight on CX or JL?
    Are the Redemption rates similar to BA Avios for Partner flights or more inline with IB?


  2. No Name

    Yes you can use IB Avios to book all Oneworld awards same as BA, IB uses the same partner chart as BA.

    See these articles by [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER] for more information:

    And this by Lucky with award charts:

    ok so for example , SFO-HKG on CX F, cost 140000 + $59.40tax searching on BA. This will be the same price if i use IB Avios?

  4. No Name

    Since IB uses the same award chart as BA for partner flights I would assume so yes. Can say for certain about the tax without searching the specific award.

    IB Avios work best for flights with connections on partners since they use length of all flight segments for the award cost rather than on per segment like BA.

    As an example

    1 segment=1 IB award
    2 (or more) segments=1 IB award

    1 segment=1 BA award
    2 segments=2 BA awards
    3 segments=3 BA awards
