Like most other airline partners, you can transfer Citi Thankyou points to Flying Club at a 1000:1000 (1:1) rate. But with the 30% bonus, you can transfer at the 1000:1300 rate during this offer.
How Long Does It Take For Citi Thankyou Points To Transfer To Flying Club
Citi Thankyou points can be transferred to the Flying Club account generally instantly most of the time. However, rarely do the points take a few hours to be transferred.
Redeeming Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Points
Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club is an amazing frequent flyer program when it comes to redeeming on select partners. You can redeem seats on Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class Suites on its brand new Airbus A330-900Neo however, keep in mind that the carrier-imposed surcharges are quite high on Virgin Atlantic flights departing from the US or the UK.
- A one-way Upper Class award from New York to London costs 47,500 points plus hefty US$624 taxes, fees and surcharges.
- A one-way Upper Class award from London to New York costs 47,5000 points plus US$567 in taxes fees and surcharges.
While the surcharges on its own flight are high, the program does offer the best redemption value when redeeming award seats on partners such as ANA or Delta Airlines.
You can also book Delta Airlines Delta One seat with Flying Club points as low as 47,500 ~ 77,500 points from the US to the UK while it costs around 50,000 points from the US to Europe and vice versa. There are also surcharges depending on the routes but those fees are not as high as the ones you can find from Virgin Atlantic metals.
Through October 14, 2023, Citibank ThankYou Rewards is offering a 30% bonus on points transferred to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club. This could be potentially valuable if you have specific award flights in mind as the program is generous when it comes to releasing award availabilities.
The Flying Club program is amazing when redeeming award seats on partner airlines such as ANA or Delta since it offers nice award rates if you can find one.
