1 year Executive Lounge Access = 20 Points
1 return UK Economy Plus flight = 22 Points
1 return European Economy flight= 24 Points
1 return European Economy Plus flight = 30 Points

And here's how you earn the Flybe points:

one-way Economy Flight  = 1 Point
one-way Flybe Economy Plus Flight  = 2 Points
return Economy Flight = 2 Points
