British Airways has just launched a new promotion that will allow its Executive Club members to earn extra Avios on their next trips.
Earn Double Avios On British Airways
Through November 20, 2022, British Airways is offering Executive Club members to earn double Avios on all British Airways and British Airways marketed partners flights. But there are a couple of terms and conditions you should be aware of:
- The registration must be made before the booking.
- Travel must be made by January 31, 2023.
- Only the base Avios will be double but not the cabin or elite bonuses.
Additionally, this offer is valid for the first four flights on British Airways flights, including domestic flights in the UK, as well as British Airways flights marketed, American Airlines, Iberia, and Finnair, when traveling between Europe and North America.
Since Executive Club members have four flights to take advantage to earn double Avios so I would plan carefully which route maximizes the base Avios earned.
Maximizing This Double Avios Promotion
This offer only allow the first four flights regardless of your flight reservation, I would be careful to plan and maximize the earning. For example, it is much better to earn double Avios on long-haul international flights than domestic or intra-European flights.
Moreover, if you have a shot-haul flights before your long-haul flights, I would recommend to credit the short-haul flights on other Oneworld partner programs like Qatar Airways or Iberia since the flight will be counted towards the first four.
If you are confused with the first four flights, British Airways expalined that “A Qualifying Flight is a single leg of a journey that departs from one location and lands in another, e.g. Edinburgh to London.”
They can be booked as a one way, returns, or multi trip bookings, where each individual leg counts towards the maximum of four flights.
- One-way example: London–New York with no return would be one Qualifying Flight.
- Return example: London-New York-London would be two Qualifying Flights.
- Multi Trip example: Edinburgh-London-New York-London-Edinburgh would be four Qualifying Flights.
British Airways Holidays Also Offering Double Avios
Meanwhile, British Airways Vacations is also offering double Avios on every US$1 spend. While this offer doesn’t sound that lucrative, the Holiday package also offers double tier credit to Executive Club members through September 30, 2023. So members are able to earn double Avios and double tier credits during this promotion together.
British Airways is offering double Avios on first four flights with either British Airways or British Airways flights marketed, American Airlines, Iberia, and Finnair, when traveling between Europe and North America.
Executive Club members must register before booking the flight by November 20, 2022 and travel by January 31, 2023. Only the first four flights will be credited with double Avios so make sure you plan your travel carefully not to get double Avios on your short-haul flights.
Also British Airways Holidays is offering a double Avios per US$1 spend. While both offers cannot be combined, you could finish one offer first and then continue earning with the next offer of your choices.
