British Airways Invites Guests to Travel the World With Reward Flights for Less Avios
The airline is offering long-haul Reward Flights in any cabin for 50 percent less Avios and short-haul flights for 25 percent less Avios. To take advantage of this limited time offer, customers must book flights by October 13th, 2020 for travel by June 30, 2021.
On Tuesday (October 6, 2020), British Airways announced the launch of a limited time promotion that will allow British Airways Executive Club members to book Reward Flights for substantially less Avios. Long-haul flights in any cabin can be booked for 50 percent fewer Avios, while short-haul flights are available for 25 percent less Avios. British Airways customers wishing to explore the world can book a flight to Los Angeles or Dubai for only 30,000 and 25,000 Avios, respectively. For those wishing to stay closer to home, return flights are available to Venice for 16,500 Avios or Athens for only 19,500 Avios. To qualify for this special offer flights must be booked by October 13, 2020 for travel through June 30, 2021. In Tuesday’s announcement, British Airways’ Head of Executive Club, Niall Rooney, said,
“This is a rare promotion for all our loyal Executive Club Members who are longing to get travelling again. Whether they want to relax in the Maldives, go camel riding in Dubai or enjoy the canals in Venice, they can now reach their destination for a significantly reduced amount of Avios.”
For a limited time, the reduced Avios needed to book flights will automatically appear when searching for a Reward Flight. British Airways Executive Club Members can check seat availability on the carrier’s website or Executive Club Rewards app.
British Airways has introduced a range of measures to keep their guests safe throughout their travels. The carrier recommends that customers check-in online and scan their boarding pass at the departure gate, where possible. Social distancing should be used throughout the airport and hand sanitizer stations should be utilized. Facemasks must be worn throughout the journey and should be replaced every four hours on long-haul flights. Naturally, customer experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should refrain from traveling. British Airways’ cabin crew members have been outfitted with PPE kit and a modified food service, reducing unnecessary interactions, has been introduced. The carrier also asks guests to remove all needed items from hand luggage before departure and to store carry-on items under the seat in front of them, if possible.
British Airways cleans all key surfaces such as seats, IFE screens, seat buckles and tray tables after every flight, while the entire aircraft is cleaned at the end of every day. All air on British Airways flights is fully recycled every two to three minutes through hospital operating theater grade HEPA filters, which remove 99.9% of particulates, including microscopic bacteria and virus clusters.
