British Airways has just launched a promotion, through which Executive Club members can earn double Avios on paid flights this fall and into early 2024.
While the airline has offered this promotion in the past, it’s the first time it’s being launched since British Airways shifted to a revenue-based earning model, and it has the potential to be lucrative.
British Airways Launches Double Avios Promotion
British Airways has just launched a promotion for Executive Club members, who can earn double Avios on paid flights this fall and winter.
Importantly, you must register first for the offer, as any flights booked prior to registration aren’t eligible for double Avios. If you’re based in the UK, you can register on the UK landing page, and if you’re based in the US, you can register on the US landing page.
It appears that accounts based in Canada may also register for the promotion on either landing page.
Once you’ve registered, you have until November 21, 2023, to book flights with British Airways. You’ll then earn double Avios on up to 10 flights, which must be completed by January 14, 2024.
You must attach your British Airways Executive Club account number at the time of booking to be eligible for double Avios.
Flights that are eligible for double Avios include all flights operated by British Airways, as well as flights between Europe and North America with American Airlines, Iberia, and Finnair, as long as they’re marketed by British Airways.
As per the promotion’s terms and conditions, each flight segment on a booking counts towards the 10 flights.
Therefore, a direct flight from London to New York would count as one flight, a round-trip from London to New York and back would count as two flights, and a multi-segment trip from Edinburgh–London–New York and back would count as four flights.
As a reminder, British Airways recently shifted to a revenue-based earning model, and the standard amount of Avios you earn depends on your status level and how much you spend on base fare, carrier-imposed surcharges, and extras such as seat selection, baggage, or upgrades, outlined as follows:
- Blue members earn 6 Avios per £1 spent
- Bronze members earn 7 Avios per £1 spent
- Silver members earn 8 Avios per £1 spent
- Gold and above members earn 9 Avios per £1 spent
With this promotion, those numbers are doubled, and you’ll earn the following number of Avios on…
