British Airways’ Executive Club frequent-flyer program announced a sale on Avios points.

The airline is offering a 50% bonus on all purchases through January 19, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. GMT.

“Your next adventure could be Avios away with 50% bonus Avios“ the airline said on its website.

Avios points continue to be cost effective when redeemed for short-haul flights on both American Airlines and British Airways, although the cost of an award flight will increase if there are multiple segments as the cost of a ticket with multiple segments is based on the combined cost of each individual segment when booking via BA.

Avios are also the frequent flyer currency of Iberia, Aer Lingus, and Level, and can also be used for travel on oneworld alliance partners including Vueling, Finnair, Qatar, and Qantas.  Until November 2011, Avios were known as Air Miles.

Gift purchases will be allowed provided the recipient of the gift has at least one Avios point in his Executive Club account.

Purchases will not count towards the normal 200,000-Avios annual purchase limit and a minimum purchase of 2,000 Avios is required to get the bonus.

The offer cannot be combined with any other promotion.
