British Airways has launched an Avios redemption sale, offering World Traveller reward flights from Heathrow and Gatwick to over 90 long-haul destinations for 50 per cent fewer points.

The promotion runs for bookings made until December 17, for travel between January 4 and June 30, 2018. More information can be seen at

Discount examples include return flights to Toronto, New York, Boston and Dubai for 13,000 Avios (usually 26,000), to Johannesburg, Fort lauderdale and Los Angeles for 16,250 Avios (usually 32,500), and to Hong Kong and Shanghai for 19,500 Avios (usually 39,000).

Full airline taxes, fees and carrier charges apply on redemptions, and the terms and conditions of the promotion state that the offer applies to both peak and off-peak Avios prices, and that discounts are available on direct one-way and return BA-operated flights.

The carrier also notes that “Reward flights are strictly subject to availability which may be very limited or not available at all on some routes including Sydney, Santiago de Chile, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, San Jose (Costa Rica) and Grenada”.

BA is also still running a double Avios earning offer on flights purchased and travelled by December 31.
