Avios may have the key to your redemption Avios, the travel reward programme, is coming to Ireland with the appointment of Eileen McGuinness as head of market.
The global frequent flyer currency for British Airways and members of International Airlines Group will be introduced by Aer Lingus in late spring.
Members of Aer Club – as the Gold Circle will become – will also be able to collect Avios from a range of companies such as Avis and Marriott. New partners are expected to join in Ireland and may include a large retail chain. Redemption rewards will include flights, hotel stays, car hire, attractions and days out. Trendy Belfast to get Bullitt hotel and Ryanair base It is all happening in Belfast this year. Ryanair announced the opening of a base at Belfast International Airport. It was named trendiest city for business travel in Europe at a recent MICE and business travel conference in Amsterdam by a panel of industry experts. And work has begun on the new Bullitt hotel; yes it is named after the movie with Steve McQueen.
The prime city centre hotel will be owned by the Beannchor Group, proprietors of the Merchant Hotel and dozens of pubs across Northern Ireland. Two more city centre hotels have received planning permission recently, adding to the four others approved in the past nine months.
Aer Lingus has the home advantage online We are going to see a lot of #HomeAdvantage over the next two months as Aer Lingus promotes its sponsorship with the IRFU.
The campaign reflects the loyalty of fans and how they make any venue feel like a home game.
