British Airways is kicking off the year with a very generous triple Avios promotion. While British Airways Executive Club isn’t usually a program I’d credit flights to, with this offer I’m quite tempted to, assuming I fly British Airways (or on one of their transatlantic joint venture partners) in the next few months. Best of all, the promotion is valid for all fare classes on all British Airways routes.
The basic terms of the promotion are as follows:
- Registration and travel required by March 31, 2017
- The promotion is valid for the first eight sectors you fly
- Only travel booked during the promotion period qualifies
- All fare classes are eligible, and you earn triple base Avios (meaning that class of service and elite bonuses aren’t tripled)
- Valid for travel on all British Airways flights, as well as flights between North America and Europe on American Airlines, Finnair, and Iberia
- The promotion is valid for members registered in regions outside of the UK, Ireland, and the US as of January 3, and for members registered in the UK, Ireland, and the US as of January 5, 2017
- The bonus Avios should appear in your account within 48 hours
As a reminder, British Airways Executive Club members ordinarily earn the following number of Avios for flights:
That means with this promotion you’d earn 75% Avios on the cheapest fares, 350% Avios on discounted business class fares, 500% Avios on full fare first class tickets, etc. This has the potential to be a very generous offer.
While British Airways Executive Club isn’t usually a program I credit miles to, this is a very generous promotion. Earning triple Avios can add up very quickly. Keep in mind, however, that you only earn triple Avios for the first eight segments you credit to Executive Club during the promotion period. So if you’re a super frequent British Airways flyer, you may find it worthwhile to credit short segments (or segments that don’t earn a lot of Avios) to another program, so you can maximize the promotion as much as possible.
Will you be taking advantage of British Airways’ triple Avios promotion?
