If you need to head over to Germany on business over the next few weeks, you may want to switch from Heathrow to the British Airways services from London City.
You will earn double Avios on BA services from London City to Berlin or Hamburg.
You must book by 31st May but can travel at any point until 31st August.
The following booking classes count:
Club Europe – J, C, D, R
Euro Traveller – Y, B, H, K, M
Note that the cheapest non-refundable tickets are not included. This promotion is unlikely to have much value to the leisure traveller. This seems a bit tight, to be honest, given that we would only talking about doubling 125 Avios to 250 Avios in Euro Traveller.
If you click on the flight number shown on ba.com during the booking process, the booking class will be shown.
You must be a British Airways Executive Club member based in the UK, Ireland or Germany to take part. Your ticket must also be issued in these countries – this could be a problem if your employer uses an offshore corporate travel management group. I know of previous promotions where people lost bonuses because their tickets had unknowingly been issued in India.

How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2023)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
EDIT: Applications for this card are temporarily suspended due to IT issues with the British Airways On Business SME loyalty scheme.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
