British Airways (BA) have launched a very nice bonus Avios offer for passengers flying in the next four months.

This promotion can be worth 2,000 Avios per British Airways short-haul flight up to a maximum of 16,000 Avios.

Impressively, even the cheapest non-refundable and hand-baggage-only tickets are eligible.

You need to register (link below), book, and fly before 30 June 2018

How many Avios can I earn?

What I like about this offer is that BA is awarding the bonus even on one-way flights.

The earnings rate is as follows:

So you’ll be earning 4,000 bonus Avios if you fly between four and seven (one-way) flights. Members who complete eight or more flights (or four return flights) will earn 16,000 Avios.

If you fly even semi-regularly for work or otherwise this should be a doddle to complete given the lengthy four-month promotional period. You’d require just one short-haul return flight a month to receive the full 16,000 Avios.

Which flights are considered short-haul?

Participating destinations include BA flights to/from the following countries:

Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine.

UK domestic flights are not included in this promotion, unfortunately.

How to register

There are several important points to be aware of with this promotion:

Eligible Participants must:

Pre-register for the offer before booking using this link (click)

  • Book and fly up between 2nd March and 23:59 on 30th June 2018.
  • The promotion does not apply to travel on flights operated by any other BA franchisees, codeshare partners or Oneworld Alliance members. The promotion does not apply to any travel on Iberia, Finnair or American Airlines.
  • You must quote your British Airways Executive Club number at time of booking.
  • Avios redemptions are not eligible for this promotion.

All bonus Avios will be awarded on/after 15th July 2018


This is a nice little extra from British Airways. If you’ve jumped ship to Easyjet or Ryanair in recent times, it might be worth shifting a couple of journeys back over to BA to bag your bonus Avios.

You never know what may come up in the next four months and you must have pre-registered for the offer before making a booking to earn bonus Avios.

I therefore recommend taking 20 seconds to click on the link below and register for this offer today.
