LifeMiles award sale lets you fly Star Alliance (including First Class) for less!

Yesterday I wrote about how you can fly premium cabins across Star Alliance member airlines for less using Avianca LifeMiles. Now you can save even more as a new LifeMiles award sale lets you book redemptions for fewer LifeMiles.

Update: You can get a better deal of 145% bonus on LifeMiles here.

Burn up to 48% fewer LifeMiles when you book an award redemption on some sectors through December 12, 2018. The offer is valid across the economy and premium cabins on Star Alliance carriers. These redemptions can be booked for travel any time in the future.

Some of the popular routes on offer include Tokyo – Shanghai (Just 6,000 LifeMiles in economy class and 18,000 in business class), Los Angeles to Seoul (72,000 LifeMiles in first class). You can check out the complete list of routes here.

Some of the redemptions can save you up to 90% when compared to cash fares. Take the Beijing-New York (JFK) route for example. A one-way first class ticket on Air China would set you back by around INR 7,26,000 (USD 10,577).

The same seat on this route can be booked for just 72,000 LifeMiles. Currently, Avianca is running a sale where you can buy LifeMiles for about INR 1 (USD 0.0014) /mile.

Key terms and conditions of this promotion include:

  • Avianca Call Center and only accept international credit cards
  • Applicable taxes are not included
  • A service fee per ticket is charged for redemptions made on Avianca Call Centers and must be paid at the time of the redemption
  • Tickets redeemed cannot be transferred to others


Avianca’s new LifeMiles award sale is a good opportunity to get discounted award redemptions. Though there are no redemptions available from India, you can still travel first class to the US via Beijing or Seoul. Air China and Asiana Airlines have relatively more first class awards available, so you might want to check for award space first.
