Best Ways To Book

You won’t find much cheaper than 35,000 miles one-way for a business class flight, which makes Avianca LifeMiles a great option to use. Thanks to partnerships with Citi ThankYou Rewards, American Express Membership Rewards, and Capital One Miles, it’s also relatively easy to earn Avianca LifeMiles.

If you’re not looking to fly to Portugal or you don’t have Avianca LifeMiles, you can also take advantage of the transfer bonus from Chase to Aeroplan to drop your total cost to just 59,000 points one-way. You can also transfer Amex Membership Rewards, Capital One miles, and Bilt Rewards points to Aeroplan.

Final Thoughts

We almost never find such widespread availability on flights to Europe, especially not to such a huge range of destinations.
