It’s important to note that the membership to the Gold Circle Club is subject to expiration. In order to remain an active member, you must earn at least 2,400 points in your 12 months of membership. If you don’t meet this criterion, you can retain your membership by redeeming 2,400 points from your account. Or, if you choose not to renew your membership, the points that you’ve accumulated will be valid for redemption for 12 months. Points only have a lifespan of 12 months, and are deducted from your account as soon as they expire. To get more information on Aer Lingus’ Gold Circle Club, visit
