Customers who are members of both the British Airways Executive Club and World Duty Free’s loyalty program, Red by Dufry, can now earn one Avios for every £1 spend at London Heathrow’s World Duty Free shops.
On Monday (November 27, 2023), British Airways announced the introduction of Avios earning on purchases at London Heathrow’s World Duty Free shops. Customers who are members of both the British Airways Executive Club and World Duty Free’s loyalty program can now earn one Avios for each £1 spend at the airport. The partnership also includes a bonus of 250 Avios on their first purchase at LHR’s World Duty Free shops across all terminals. To begin collecting Avios, Executive Club members should ensure they have signed up for Red by Dufry, World Duty Free’s loyalty program, and entered their Executive Club details in the app.
In Monday’s announcement, British Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, Colm Lacy, said,
“We know how much collecting Avios makes a difference to our customers’ travels, so we continue to find new ways to make collecting it easier than ever. With World Duty Free’s expansive presence at Heathrow, there’ll be plenty of opportunity for Members to collect Avios, bringing them one step closer to their next flight, holiday or experience.”
The Avios will be awarded within 72 hours of each eligible purchase, with the 250 bonus Avios applied to the first transaction. To earn even more Avios, savvy shoppers can also use their British Airways American Express cards for their purchases. Members of the Iberia Plus loyalty program can also collect one Avios per €1 spend when shopping at World Duty Free shops in Spain.
