In Monday’s announcement, Aer Lingus’ Chief Customer Officer, Susanne Carberry, said,
“We are delighted to be celebrating AerClub’s 5th birthday, and what an eventful five years it’s been. Despite the travel restrictions in place over the past 18 months, we continued to reward loyal customers, something which we believe sets us apart from other airlines. It was encouraging to see members continue to use AerClub and avail of great offers and rewards.
“AerClub is a unique rewards programme as it allows members to collect Avios not just when flying but also when making everyday purchases. We work with partners that we know will appeal to our members and we plan to continue to develop the AerClub offering over the coming months, creating even more ways for our members to collect and be rewarded as they get back to travel. The AerClub team would like to thank all our loyal members for all their support over the past 5 years.”
Over the past five years, AerClub has signed up over 1.5 million members in Ireland, the U.S., across the UK and Europe, with 22 percent actively redeeming their Avios over the past year despite the pandemic.
