What are Avios and tier points | Finnair Spain

What are Avios and tier points?

When you join Finnair Plus, you will collect Avios, our loyalty currency, and an equal amount of tier points every time you fly with us or with any of our oneworld partners. Here’s how Avios and tier points work. 

Log in to see your Avios balance.

What are Avios?

Avios is the loyalty currency of Finnair Plus, and your ticket to countless benefits. You can collect Avios from your flights and travel extra purchases with Finnair and our oneworld partners, services provided by our Finnair Plus partners, and from making purchases with Finnair Visa Credit card (only in FInland).

The more Avios you collect, the more awards and benefits you have access to. For example, you can use your Avios to upgrade your travel class, pay for hotel nights or car rentals or purchase award vouchers for restaurants, just to name a few.

As soon as you have collected your first Avios, you can start using them on many kinds of services and products – or save them for later. Avios will not expire, as long as you have at least one transaction every 18 months. For example, you can spend them on the dream holiday you've been saving for!

What are tier points?

Tier points function a little differently compared to Avios. Alongside Avios, you can collect an equal amount of Finnair Plus tier points from your flights and travel extra purchases with Finnair and our oneworld partners. You can also collect tier points from making purchases with Finnair Visa Credit card*. The more tier points you collect during your tracking period, the higher membership tier and more valuable benefits you will get.

  • using our partners’ services
  • making purchases with Finnair Visa Credit card*
     

Collect, use or buy Avios at least once every 18 months to keep them from expiring.

Tier points

Tier points help you reach or maintain Finnair Plus tiers and unlock many kinds of benefits. You can collect tier points by:

  • flying with us or our oneworld partners
  • buying travel extras for Finnair flights
  • making purchases with Finnair Visa Credit card*


You can collect tier points over a one-year tracking period after which they reset back to zero.

*Finnair Visa Credit card is only available in Finland. 

Transfer Avios between Finnair Plus and British Airways

If you have a British Airways Executive Club account, you can link your Finnair Plus and British Airways Executive Club accounts and transfer Avios between them. This significantly widens your opportunities to use Avios as you have access to not only Finnair Plus but also British Airways Executive Club rewards.

Furthermore, you can link a British Airways Executive Club account to a Qatar Airways Privilege Club or Iberia Plus account if you have one. This will widen your opportunities to collect and spend Avios even more.

You can link your accounts and transfer Avios on the Balance and transactions page of your Finnair Plus account.
