Art. 4 - Program Partners
The list of Partners of the Program is provided in Appendix A of these Regulations and on the website www.meridiana.it and/or in the Guide and / or in the Program Communications. This list may be altered at any time. The Airline shall promptly notify Members of any changes to the abovementioned list; these changes shall not involve the loss of any Avios collected using the services of any Partner that may have been excluded from the list, and the exercise of this option will result in an expansion of the possibilities and / or benefits to all participants in the Meridiana Club.
Art. 5 - Avios
5.1 Avios are the basic unit of calculation for the Program used by the Airline and the partners. Members earn Avios on the Airline’s flights, as well as when using service of commercial partners. Code-sharing flights of the Airline or of a Program Partner Airline in association with other airlines do not entitle Members to earn Avios.
5.2 The number of Avios credited for the flights is calculated according to the IATA TPM (Ticketed Point Mileage) distance or on the minimum Avios number envisaged by the Program between the flight’s departure and destination airports and on the booking class used which indicates the pre-selected rate. For multi-leg flights, Avios are credited in relation to individual legs. The number of Avios credited is specified in the Avios earning tables available on the website www.meridiana.com and / or in the Guide. The number of Avios credited is as specified in the Avios earning tables in force at the time the ticket for each leg is used. The content of these tables is only valid for the period specified on the website www.meridiana.com and / or in the Guide. The services provided and the products offered by Partner companies that are eligible for Avios are indicated on the website www.meridiana.com and / or in the Guide and / or in the Program Notices.
5.3 To have Avios credited automatically, Members must quote their personal numeric code when booking flights and show the Card when checking-in at the airport. It may not be possible to credit Avios automatically at some airports. If Avios are not credited automatically Members are entitled to a Crediting of Missing Avios by submitting a request within four (4) months of taking the flight to which the Avios refer, as specified on the website www.meridiana.com and/or in the Guide. If the services or products of a Commercial Partner are used, Members must quote their personal numerical code when booking the service or purchasing the product.
5.4 In the event that a Member is also registered in another airline’s loyalty program and flies with that airline, he will not be able to have duplicate Avios credited to the account of that program as well as to the account of this Program. If the Airline establishes that a Member has fraudulently obtained duplicate Avios, it reserves the right to void the unduly credited Avios and to exclude the Member from the Program, without prejudice to any rights acquired.
5.5 Any tickets purchased but not used are not eligible for Avios.
5.6 Any Avios that Members earn by using air transport services may only be credited to Members once they have taken the flights.
5.7 Any flights purchased by Members but used by others are not eligible for Avios.
5.8 The Airline reserves the right to undertake promotional initiatives or enter into specific agreements through which Avios can be awarded on different grounds and in addition to those provided for in these Regulations; these will be communicated on the website www.meridiana.com and the Program Communications, and of which the Ministry of Economic Development will be promptly informed.
5.9 Avios obtained after using Commercial Partner services or products are governed by the rules communicated by these Partners, which are usually posted on the website www.meridiana.com and / or in the Guide and/or in the Program Communications and / or on the Partners websites if indicated in the list of Partners included in Appendix A of these Regulations.
5.10 Avios cannot be earned from flights taken as Rewards.
5.11 Avios may not be earned on some special booking classes on the Airline’s flights or classes of Partner services or products with particularly discounted rates/prices. The Airline does, however, reserve the right to award Avios for these special rates/prices during specific promotional campaigns, of which Members will be suitably notified as described in art.10 Presidential Decree 430/2001.
5.12 Avios cannot be earned from flights that are free of charge or with discounts of over 40% on the applicable fare (excluding taxes and supplements). Any Avios credited as a result of these flights will be canceled.
5.13 Avios will not be credited for flights with airlines that are not Program Partners, even if originally booked through the Airline or for a ticket issued closed on the Airline. Nonetheless, if the Airline rebooks the flight to an airline that is not a Program Partner because one of the Airline’s flights is canceled within 36 hours of departure, the Member will still be entitled to credit for Avios for that flight.
5.14 Charter flights are not eligible for Avios.
5.15 Program Partners are the only parties responsible for the conditions for awarding Avios , following the use of their services or the purchase of their products and the related credit. Members wishing to use Partner services or products are required to check these applicable conditions with the Partners. The Airline assumes no liability for services or products offered by its Partners. Any related complaints must be addressed directly to those Partners as indicated by them.
5.16 Avios cannot be traded by Members nor converted into cash.
5.17 Avios earned by Members are detailed on their statements, which can be viewed on the website www.meridiana.com Members are responsible for checking their own statements. In any event, the Airline retains the right to not award Avios or to cancel any Avios mistakenly credited at any time, giving the Member suitable notice.
5.18 In the event of a free upgrade to a superior travel class, awarded by the Airline or one of the Partner Airlines for operational reasons, Members will be credited with the Avios according to the travel class shown on the ticket rather than the class actually flown.
5.19 After a thirty-six (36) month period, during which the Member has not earned any Avios by flying with the Airline or with the Program Partners, the Airline will cancel the expired Avios on the Member’s account. Members are responsible for checking the expiration date of their own Avios. The Airline is not required to communicated the cancellation of Avios pursuant to the above provisions.
5.20 This Rewards transaction enables Avios until the end of April 15, 2017, subject to any Program extensions (see Art. 1.1). Rewards may be requested by Members until May 15th, 2017, and will be awarded to the rightful owner within a maximum period of six (6) months of the end of the transaction (i.e. by November 15th, 2017) pursuant to Presidential Decree n. 430 of October 26th, 2001, with the exception of any Rewards that must be delivered to Member’s home, to which the rules given in the relevant pages on the website www.meridiana.com relating to these matters apply. Avios earned before April 15th, 2017 which have not been used by May 15th, 2017 will still be available to the Member for the purpose of participation in other programs with points and any Meridiana Club Program extensions, unless otherwise notified.
Art. 6 – Avios & Money
6.1 For Members to achieve the number of Avios required to obtain one of the Program Rewards, Members may access the Avios & Money option, which allows them to supplement their Avios with a sum of money that is sufficient to collect the Reward. This right is subject to the conditions set forth in the table “Avios & Money” available on www.meridiana.com and/or in the Guide and / or in the Program Notices. To obtain the Reward, it is therefore expected that the money contribution does not exceed 75 percent of the value of the Reward pursuant to Art. 3 of the Italian Presidential Decree no. 430 of October 26, 2001, (published in Official Journal no. 289 of December 13, 2001). To obtain a Reward, it is therefore necessary to have earned at least 25% of the value of the Reward in Avios.
Art. 7 - Rewards

Rewards cannot be claimed for code-sharing flights operated by Airlines that are not Program Partners.

The Airline guarantees that a minimum of two (2) Reward seats will be available from when the sale of seats on the flight starts until all seats are sold or 31 days before the flight departure. The availability of reward seats on flights of the Partners Airline is not a responsibility of Meridiana, instead is a responsibility of the Partner Airline.
7.11 For each Reward ticket, a maximum of two (2) non-requested stops (transits) at intermediate airports between the points of origin and destination are permitted. Requested stops (stopovers) are not permitted.
7.12 Beneficiaries of specific fare discounts (e.g. minors, students, pensioners, etc.) are not entitled to any reduction of the number of Avios required for Rewards; they are entitled to the same Rewards by spending the same number of Avios as the other Members.
7.13 The Avios used to redeem awards can in no case be re-credited to the member’s account. Award tickets are valid for twelve (12) months from the date of issue, which cannot be extended under any circumstances. Meridiana reserves the right to issue promotional reward tickets with a limited validity of less than twelve (12) months, by communicating the issue to the customer. Expired Rewards cannot be replaced or changed. Any change made to the reward tickets (in terms of date/time, destination, beneficiary and/or itinerary and/or carrier) may be made as long as it occurs within the Reward period of validity (if the beneficiary changes, the previously assigned seat cannot be guaranteed), against payment of an amount in cash (the amount is available on the website www.meridiana.com and / or the Guide) and any charge for adjusting the threshold of Avios, the fuel surcharge and airport taxes if the amount in excess of the same for the new award ticket required. If a change in itinerary results in residual Avios, these will be lost and will not be refunded to the Member under any circumstances. Any changes must be made by the Call Center; any changes made by other offices of the Airline, the Airline or third-party travel agencies or other Airlines are not permitted.
7.14 Rewards cannot be used on Airlines other than those specified on the ticket.
7.15 In any event, changes of itinerary and/or beneficiary are not permitted if the ticket has been partially used.
7.16 If an award ticket is misplaced or stolen, or totally or partially lost or damaged, the Airline will replace the ticket either in full or in part at the Member’s request, on condition that a) the Member produces evidence of a report made to the competent Public Authorities and b) proof is given, to be promptly verified at the time of the request, that the ticket was validly issued. The Airline, on issuing a new ticket with the same expiration date and the same characteristics as the original ticket, may require payment of a reasonable fee for this service, unless the theft, total or partial loss or damage are attributable to the Airline’s negligence or that of its agents or employees. If a lost, stolen or damaged ticket is returned to the Member prior to its expiration date, the Member will be required to return it to the Airline. The Airline reserves the right at all times to refund the value of the mislaid/lost, stolen or damaged ticket in the event that it has been used fraudulently.
7.17 The current Meridiana “General Conditions of Carriage for Passengers and Baggage” apply to the rules on carrier liability in relation to flights operated for the redemption of Rewards (available on the website www.meridiana.com).
7.18 The approximate value of individual Rewards is determined based on air fares in effect at the time the Rewards are issued.
