Earn double Avios on flights and British Airways Holidays packages

British Airways is running a great double Avios offer for its Executive Club members on flights to Europe from the United Kingdom and on European British Airways Holidays packages.

With this offer, you’d stand to earn at least 2 Avios per British pound ($1.27) spent on both flights and British Airways Holidays packages. If you use a points-earning credit card when taking advantage of this deal, you could increase your earnings even more. For additional value, you could also partake in the airline’s generous double-tier points offer when booking a British Airways Holidays package.

The timing of this deal is great, as many Executive Club members felt stung when British Airways shifted last year to a system in which Avios are awarded based on the cost of a flight rather than the distance flown.

Bottom line

Many British Airways Executive Club members were disappointed by the airline’s recent shift to a revenue-based Avios-earning structure.

However, despite the shift, this latest promotion from the carrier is still a good one to consider if you can book and travel before April 24.
