New BA ‘bonus Avios’ offer – extra points on flights to 21 destinations

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

British Airways, in conjunction with American Airlines and Iberia, has launched a new promotion offering bonus Avios points on flights to 21 destinations.

You must register for this promotion.  As it runs until 29th February, I strongly recommend that you register now as you are likely to forget.  The registration link is here.

Here are the destinations offering a bonus:

North America: Boston, Calgary, Denver, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Philadelphia, Toronto, Vancouver

Africa and Middle East: Abuja, Amman, Bahrain, Beirut, Cape Town, Lagos

Europe and Asia: Baku, Bangkok, Beijing, Chengdu, Singapore

South America and Caribbean: Buenos Aires, Punta Cana

British Airways 350 3

These are the bonuses you will earn:

First: 6,000 Avios return

Club World / Business: 4,000 Avios return

World Traveller Plus: 3,000 Avios return

World Traveller / Economy: 1,500 Avios return

Here is a summary of the rules:

You must book between 2nd November and 13th December – existing bookings do not count

You must fly between 2nd November and 29th February

Flights can be on BA, AA or Iberia as long as they are credited to your BA account

The bonus is only given on return flights

You can earn the bonus a maximum of four times

To be honest, I find this promotion a little half-hearted.  4,000 Avios may persuade someone to move a Club World flight across to oneworld but I would be surprised if First Class passengers are swayed by a 6,000 Avios sweetener.  Similarly, I doubt 1,500 Avios makes much difference either way to a World Traveller passenger.

You shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth, though, so I recommend you click here and scroll down to the registration link just in case you do end up travelling to one of these places.

    Why are kids never eligible for these deals?

    • It is odd. Just book an adult ticket instead, assuming it is still possible to do that. I was annoyed a few years when I found I couldn’t get OnBusiness points on some flights I bought for my kids – I should have booked them as adults.

  2. I like how originating the other direction (North America to UK) has 25k bonus avios in J, but ex-UK is 4k bonus. Heck, even ex-EU accounts seem to get the 25k bonus.

    AA is 12.5k each one-way, regardless of origin, and applies to existing bookings.
