British Airways Economy & Premium Economy Sale Fares Loaded 20th December 2017

by Continental Club on December 20, 2017  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

British AirwaysBritish Airways has now loaded sale fares in its World Traveller (Economy) and World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) cabins for travel to destinations worldwide on selected dates throughout 2018. Periods of availability vary by destination, reflecting seasonal demand variations. Fares must be booked by 23:59 GMT on 30th January 2018. An official ‘Sale’ page is published to the airline’s website at ba.com but, as always, the BA Low Fare Finder is the best way to check the new fares and availability.

Overall, Economy fares are 8% lower and Premium Economy fares are 6% lower than in the last full sale. Sydney moves back £697 return from £733 in Economy, for example. Los Angeles sheds £172 from its last Premium Economy sale fare, while Vancouver loses an additional £47 compared to last time around. Mauritius remains favoured, with its notable sub £1000 Premium Economy fare still available time. The Economy fare on that route drops from £678 to £606, but Muscat is the standout from £299 return in Economy and £509 in Premium Economy – both fares being £30 lower than in the last sale.

Looking West, Boston from £300 in particular, and New York from £368, are as low as we’ve seen for some time.

All sale fares qualify for Avios and Tier Point credit in the British Airways Executive Club frequent flyer programme, as well as OnBusiness points for small and medium sized enterprises enrolled in that programme.

For a full list of longhaul destinations and lowest fares, click ‘READ MORE’ or scroll down. The listing includes the equivalent fares from the last full sale in August 2017, rather than the short ‘flash’ Black Friday promotion in November 2017, which was highly date and destination-restricted.

Although the ba.com Sale page is live, the fastest way to check availability and to book may still be to visit the Low Fares Finder at ba.com.
