Avianca LifeMiles has revamped its website after a five-day outage at the beginning of February. The update brings two major changes to the loyalty program: a fresh new design and expanded award availability on Star Alliance partners. One the design side, the new website has a more modern feel with larger fonts and menus, taking on a very mobile look.
For points collectors, the big news is that you can now book South African Airways and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) flights without calling a phone representative. Additionally, you can now make cash and points bookings using LifeMiles. A slider will appear on the checkout screen that where you can choose how many miles and how much cash you'd like to use on your booking.
- The Avianca Lifemiles website has been completely redesigned with larger menus and font
- Cash and miles option has been added
- South African and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) award availability now shows in search results
- Access the Avianca award search here
It's great to see LifeMiles add new functionality to its website. If you're planning a trip, check out our post about the best ways to redeem Avianca LifeMiles. One of the most frustrating things about the old LifeMiles site was discrepancies between LifeMiles and other Star Alliance booking engines like Aeroplan and United MileagePlus. Although it isn't entirely clear that all issues have been fixed, the results for the new site seem more in line with other Star Alliance award search tools. LifeMiles is a transfer partner of Capital One Rewards, Amex Membership Rewards, and Citi ThankYou Rewards, so it should be easy to top up your account.
