There's a cheering news for British Airways Executive Club Members, as they can now book a reward flight using Avios and pay as little as £1 return.
With the trial starting on Tuesday this week, the new Avios pricing options can be redeemed on British Airways flights in the United Kingdom and Europe.
The additional Avios options follows a successful trial in May on select European destinations. With the new option, Members can fly to destinations such as Edinburgh or Venice for only £1 and 16,000 and 22,000 Avios respectively.
For these same destinations, flying return, customers with a lower Avios balance have the option to use 9,000 Avios and pay £31 to Edinburgh and 15,000 Avios and £35 to Venice.
To book a Reward Flight Saver ticket, customers need to have collected at least one Avios in the last 12 months. British Airways is testing this pricing option in addition to the previous flat rate of £35 for taxes, fees and carrier charges along with the Avios needed for their destination.
Avios can be collected on flights with British Airways and its oneworld partner airlines. Customers can then spend Avios on flights, upgrades, hotels, car hire and other travel rewards.
