When I published my list of all British Airways destinations and their cost in Avios, there were requests for a consolidated list of peak and off-peak redemption dates.
I’m happy to oblige!
The tables below cover the next 12 months. The first set apply for British Airways redemptions. They do NOT apply to:
redemptions on Iberia, which are priced off a different peak and off-peak chart even when booked at ba.com
redemptions on partner airlines, which are ALWAYS priced at peak rate
The Iberia peak and off-peak calendar is shown at the bottom. If you are smart, you can arbitrage the difference in off-peak dates. For example, October half-term is ‘peak’ for BA but ‘off-peak’ for Iberia. Booking an Iberia redemption for that period will be substantially cheaper, although you cannot use a BA Amex 2-4-1 voucher on Iberia.
If you are reading this on a mobile, the tables may not display properly. I recommend switching to ‘desktop view’ or looking again later when you are on a desktop or tablet.
I will add a link to this article to the ‘Favourites’ page and keep it updated.
Off-peak dates are in cream. The easy way to remember this is that Tuesday and Wednesday flights are ALWAYS off-peak on British Airways.
