Aer Credit Card has picked up the award for Best Benefits or Loyalty Programme of the Year at the Card and Payments Awards. The Card & Payments Awards recognise excellence and innovation in the UK and Irish card and payments industries.

Bank of Ireland in partnership with Aer Lingus launched this co-branded airline travel rewards card to the Irish Market in January 2019. Aer Credit Card is a highly differentiated credit card proposition which was developed based on extensive external customer research. The customer value proposition includes five key travel related benefits* including two return flights to Europe (you pay taxes fees and charges), travel insurance, lounge passes, fast track and priority boarding passes worth in excess of €200. Card holders can also collect 1 Avios for every €1 spend with Aer Lingus and 1 Avios for every €4 spend on all other transactions.

The Aer Lingus partnership leverages the brand strength and existing loyalty of the Aer Lingus AerClub Programme, while also providing Bank of Ireland with a unique co-branded credit card proposition. Aer Credit Card was launched as a disruptor to the Irish marketplace and provides Bank of Ireland and Aer Lingus with a unique and innovative proposition for customers.
