£1009 in BA Club World to Beijing or Shanghai – Chinese New Year flash sale

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

British Airways has launched its own Chinese New Year event, and it is a very attractive one.

As long as two people travel together, you can fly from Heathrow to Beijing or Shanghai in Club World for just £1009 each (£2018 for two).

There is even a way of getting the price below £1000 each as I show below.

Here are the travel dates where you will find the fare.  As you see, April, May and June are your best bets:

  • 1st April to 30th April
  • 14th May to 31st May
  • 1st June to 7th July
  • 24th September to 4th October
  • 15th October to 31st October
  • 12th November to 6th December

In typical BA style, this deal is not being shown on the ba.com home page or the special offers page.  Neither have they emailed the public or trade partners like us about it.  The fare is definitely there though!

Remember to search for TWO Club World passengers.

A Saturday night stay is required.

Last year you may remember I wrote about our own visit to Beijing at Easter.  We did not require a Visa to get in because we were technically in transit – we flew in from Tokyo and flew out again, three days later, to London.  You DO still require a Visa if you fly into China and it is your final destination.

My review of the impressive Waldorf Astoria Beijing is here.  It is a very smart hotel and, importantly, only a few minutes walk from the Forbidden City.  That said, if it is a toss-up between Beijing and Shanghai then I think the latter is more interesting.

These British Airways Club World deals need to be booked by Wednesday 21st.

Don’t forget the BA Holidays booking option

You can also book these deals via BA Holidays via this page.

Search for ‘flight and hotel’ and various options for two people for a similar price as the flights (£2018) or even less will appear.

For example, for a 3-night stay from 16th to 19th June, I can book 2 x Club World flights to Shanghai PLUS three nights in the Rayfont Hotel South Bund (3-star, admittedly) for just £983 per person!

BA Holidays bookings earn Avios and tier points as usual on the flights, although they do not earn credit in the BA On Business small business loyalty scheme.

Don’t forget the other benefits of booking via BA Holidays:

You only need to pay a deposit of £300 per couple now, with the balance due 5 weeks before travel

You earn an extra 1 bonus Avios per £1 spent

It is worth playing around on the BA Holidays site to see what comes up.

    I managed to book the flights at this excellent rate. Do we know it is possible/ worth adding hotels to the same booking?
