BA launches Avios promotion

By Bev Fearis, published 7/10/20

British Airways is halving the amount of Avios rewards normally required for long-haul flights for a limited time and cutting them by 25% for short-haul flights.

Executive Club members must book by October 13 2020 and travel by June 30 2021.

The reduced number of Avios rewards required will appear automatically when searching for a Reward Flight.

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.”

Since the start of October, BA has increased the number of destinations it serves.

It has reintroduced long-haul services to Johannesburg, Cape Town and Bahrain, while flights to Grenada are scheduled to return on October 14 and Seychelles on October 16.

Lahore, a new addition to its route network, begins on October 12 while new Heathrow services to the Maldives and Barbados launch on October 16 and 17 respectively.

Services have also resumed to Brussels, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Gothenburg, Milan Linate, Stuttgart, Seville, Valencia, Bilbao, Kefalonia, Luxembourg and Lanzarote.

Later in October, services will resume to Billund, Bordeaux, Basel, Brindisi, Cologne, Gran Canaria, Malta, Salzburg, Vienna and Zagreb.
