British Airways has extended the expiry date on some British Airways American Express 2-4-1 companion vouchers.
All vouchers due to expire before 31st December 2021 have been extended by six months.
As well as BA Amex vouchers, this extension also applies to:
- Gold Upgrade Vouchers
- Chase Travel Together Tickets
- RBC Companion Award Vouchers
- Asba Companion Vouchers
- RSB American Express Companion Vouchers
- RSB World Mastercard Companion Vouchers
This is the third extension that has been announced, following similar extensions in March 2020 and October 2020, to account for the impact of the pandemic.
In addition, British Airways is adding an additional 6-months validity to all new Companion Voucher or Travel Together tickets earned between June 2020 and the end of December 2021.

This is what it shows now:
Both have been extended by six months.
For clarity, the extension is also applied to vouchers which have been used but where the flight has not been taken. If you cancel a flight which has already been booked using a 241 voucher, it will come back into your account with the six month extension applied.
