Ready For Takeoff: British Airways offers long haul flights at reduced Avios points
British Airways is offering customers the chance to fly to any long haul destination, in any cabin, for half the amount of Avios normally required.
For a limited time, the number of Avios needed to book a long haul Reward Flight across any cabin has been slashed by 50%. This means that customers can pick up return flights to destinations like Los Angeles for 30,00 Avios or Dubai for 25,000 Avios, paying a cash amount on top of this to cover taxes, fees and carrier charges.
Customers who want to use their Avios for a short haul getaway can do so for 25% less Avios, meaning they can visit Venice for 16,500 Avios return or Athens for 19,500 Avios return.
To take advantage of the sale, customers must book by 13 October 2020, and travel by 30 June 2021.
Niall Rooney, Head of the British Airways Executive Club, said: “This is a rare promotion for all our loyal Executive Club Members who are longing to get travelling again. Whether they want to relax in the Maldives, go camel riding in Dubai or enjoy the canals in Venice, they can now reach their destination for a significantly reduced amount of Avios.”
The reduced Avios needed to book will appear automatically when searching for a Reward Flight. Full details, including complete terms and conditions, can be seen here. Members of the British Airways Executive Club can easily check where Reward Flight seats are available across British Airways’ network via ba.com and the British Airways Executive Club Rewards app.
