Members of Bmi's Diamond Club can now transfer their destination miles at a rate of 1:1 over to BA's Executive Club, using an online tool at ba.com.
Business Traveller tested the service this morning (see screen grab below), and while it was running slow (possibly due to the high volumes of members attempting the transfer), we were able to transfer Bmi Diamond Club destination miles into a BA Executive Club account.
Members should log into their Executive Club account at ba.com, then click on "Combine My Avios" under "Your Options". Avios points were updated immediately after the transfer, and emails were also sent out by both schemes confirming the transfer.
The launch of the online transfer tool is the latest step in the integration of Bmi into BA's operations at Heathrow, following the purchase of the carrier by IAG earlier this year.
