How to book SriLankan Reward Availability

Recently I need to look at flights between CMB ( Colombo ) and SIN ( Singapore ). Singapore Airlines does this route direct however at a cost of 50,000 Star Alliance Award Miles (Aegean) 

SriLankan Airlines does this route as well and being part of the OneWord Alliance I should be able to use Qantas Miles for this Journey …. wrong! Turns out for some reason you can’t use Points Plus Pay for this Carrier.

I do have some Iberia points left over from this promotion, but you cannot book SriLankan Award Seats with Iberia OneWorld however, you can 

transfer Iberia points to British Airways Executive club

Go to and log-in by hovering over the ‘Iberia Plus’ box in the top right of the screen

Hover over ‘Iberia Plus’ again in the top-right corner and select ‘My Avios’ under the ‘My Profile’ menu

From the ‘My Avios’ page, click on ‘Buying or transferring Avios’

At the bottom of that page, headed ‘Buy, give away or transfer Avios’, you will see the line “Don’t forget you can combine your Avios with those of other customer loyalty programmes”.  Click this text.

(Important:  if your Iberia account has not been open for 90 days and has not earned at least 1 Avios point, you will NOT see this line of text because you are not yet able to transfer Avios.  Instead, you will see this:

There is a blank space under the ‘Transfer’ box where the ‘combine’ link should be.)

You will now be on the ‘Combine My Avios’ page.  Follow the instructions to send your points to avios.com or British Airways Executive Club.

This transfer for immediate for me

In order to search award space on the British Airways website, you need to be a member of the British Airways Executive Club.

Fortunately, you don’t have to have any Avios in your account, so once you’ve registered you’ll be able to use the award search tool.

Navigating to the OneWorld search tool

Log into your Executive Club account on the upper right of the website.

Using-British-Airways-Award-Tool-16

Under “Executive Club” select “Spending Avios”

This will take you to the next screen, which lists the various options for spending Avios, and select “Book flights with Avios.”
