Points to note about Benefit free flights

  • Your company can also pay these taxes, fees and surcharges with Benefit points on intercontinental flights operated by Lufthansa with Lufthansa flight numbers, on European and intercontinental flights operated by Austrian Airlines with Austrian Airlines’ flight numbers and by SWISS-operated flights with SWISS flight numbers. The required points amount (rounded up to the next full ten BenefitPoints) will be calculated by the PartnerPlusBenefit Service Centre at the time of booking, based on a fixed point value and your individual routing.
