This is an excellent offer … almost as good as the £777 deal to Seoul that British Airways ran recently.
You can fly, return, from London or Manchester to Chongqing for just £815 including all taxes.
The flights are with Finnair so you will be changing planes in Helsinki. The flight would earn 440 British Airways tier points – very close to the 600 required for a Silver card – plus a big pile of Avios points.
You need to be a member of Finnair Plus, Finnair’s loyalty scheme, to book this. However, it is free to sign-up, and during the booking process you can put in a British Airways Executive Club number instead of your Finnair one.
The small print:
- Book by 17th December
- Must stay for 6 nights or a Friday or Saturday night
- Must return home before 31st May
- You cannot do a stopover in Helsinki
- No changes / no refunds
A visa is required for travel to China, don’t forget.
I haven’t dug out a map of China, so I’m not sure how easy it is to hop from Chongqing to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong etc.
