British Airways Avios Longhaul Part Payment Promotion

by Continental Club on April 7, 2015

British Airways has offered its Executive Club members the opportunity to redeem Avios points in part payment for many shorthaul tickets since October 2013. Prior to that time, the use of Avios required ‘redemption’ availability on the required flights; availability which many will know is often difficult to come-by.

BA Exec Avios

The part payment system therefore allows more flexible use of Avios against a wide range of paid-for tickets, albeit at generally lower-value rates than outright redemptions or upgrades.

Until the 29th April 2015, BA is allowing Executive Club members to use Avios in part payment for longhaul flights as well, the second time it has run a longhaul part payment promotion. Unlike its last offer, however, the maximum part payment is now increased to 60,000 Avios for a £400 fare reduction on a Club World or First Class ticket.

The full list of longhaul part payment options is as follows:

Avios part payment amount Saving per person
World Traveller & World Traveller Plus 1,500 Avios £10pp
4,500 Avios £30pp
7,500 Avios £50pp
15,000 Avios £100pp
Club World & First 4,500 Avios £30pp
7,500 Avios £50pp
15,000 Avios £100pp
30,000 Avios £200pp
45,000 Avios £300pp
60,000 Avios £400pp

 

The offer is available to members’ who are logged in to their Executive Club account, on flights departing from London Heathrow to anywhere on the longhaul network and from London City Airport to New York JFK, on British Airways flight-only bookings. The booking period is 1st April 2015 to the– 29th April 2015 for travel between 1st April 2015 – 1st April 2016. The maximum advertised discount may not be offered when making a booking, if the member’s Avios balance is insufficient.

The underlying ticket(s) purchased will continue to earn Avios and Tier Points at the same rate as they would had they been paid for entirely with cash.
