British Airways updates mobile app rewards flight feature

16 Dec 2015 by GrahamSmith
British Airways has updated its iPhone app to include a Reward Flight Finder feature that allows passengers to locate flights which can be booked using Avios or a combination of Avios and cash. The latest release also features a redesigned flight booking process; this update is for both iOS and Android devices. BA said it has seen the number of reward flights booked on mobile devices increase by over 300 per cent in the last year. On each flight the airline ensures that there are a minimum of six seats available, including two in Club on short and long-haul services, BA said. Kevin McQuillan, BA's head of and mobile, said: "We know our loyal customers are keen collectors of Avios and are always looking for flights on which to spend them. "The new Reward Flight Finder makes that process easier and smoother than ever, and the user-friendly interface makes searching for a flight just a finger swipe away. "And because the number of customers booking through our iPhone app has also grown by over 100 per cent in the last year alone, we understand that they are often short on time when they are on the move. Thanks to this new redesign it is now possible for time-pressed customers to find great prices and book flights in under 60 seconds." Last week, BA announced it is rolling-out new 3D surround sound for films screened on its long-haul flights (December 10). Graham Smith
