Members of the British Airways Executive Club are currently being treated by the airline. From today, the amount of Avios required to book reward flights have been substantially reduced.

This is easily the best deal seen in quite a long time for frequent flyers at the oneworld carrier. You had better get in quick though as it’s a limited time offer.

Reward Flights Deal

Those wanting to take long-haul flights can now do it for half price. A full 50% has been taken off the usual amount of Avios required for travel. For example, return flights from London Heathrow to New York will set you back just 50,000 Avios in Club World business class.

First class is also half off, so the same trip would require 68,000 Avios. You still need to pay the taxes and fees on top of course and this is not discounted.

When it comes to European and short-haul travel, the discount is 25%. I would really save your Avios to use for long-haul flights as you get more value out of the points.

You need to book by 13 October 2020 for travel anytime up to 30 June 2021. Bookings can be cancelled for a £35 fee, so if you can’t go, or change your plans, you won’t be very much out of pocket.

Overall Thoughts

Reward flights are the best use of your frequent flyer points in my opinion. Being able to fly at the pointy end without paying full price is something everyone finds satisfactory.

This is one of the most competitive promotions British Airways have ever had, so you should take advantage of this. It only applies to BA flights and not flights with partner airlines.
