Finnair has updated its Finnair Plus loyalty programme by introducing Avios as its new loyalty currency in early 2024.
The Finnair Plus programme will also move to a new spend-based platform. It will feature new milestone benefits, such as additional upgrade benefits, when reaching certain point limits within an existing tier.
Members will now also receive complimentary internet access for messaging on Finnair’s short-haul European flights regardless of their tier status. The airline will guarantee at least four award seats on Finnair flights within Europe and eight on Finnair long-haul flights.
Finnair Plus award points will be converted to Avios with a 3:2 ratio, and the purchasing power of the current points remains unchanged – Avios prices are also updated with the same 3:2 ratio.
Members will be able to move from one tier to another based on the money spent on Finnair’s flights and travel extras. Tier limits will be revised to reflect the switch to Avios and the new spend-based earn of tier points.
Collecting tier points and loyalty currency on partner-marketed or operated flights will continue to be based on the travel class, booking class, and miles flown.
Finnair will communicate the exact date for the changes to members later this year.
