British Airways expands reward flight availability – Business Traveller


British Airways has expanded the availability of its reward flights. From today the number of long-haul destinations available for Reward Flight Saver (RFS) bookings with Avios has been doubled.

RFS flights now include Club World (long-haul business class) and World Traveller Plus (premium economy) for every long-haul flight. In addition, for the first time the ability to book RFS flights is also being rolled out to US-based Executive Club Members.

RFS offers Reward Seats for a flat fee, plus a fixed Avios amount. The entry level is European flights starting at £1 plus 18,500 Avios, or, for long-haul, from £100 plus 50,000 Avios.

The new move sees this offer extended to 100 per cent of the airline’s route network – including long-haul premium cabins. Bookings can be changed or cancelled easily for a fee of £35 per person.

Until today, RFS was available to redeem in Club Europe (short-haul business class), Euro Traveller (short-haul economy) and World Traveller (long-haul economy) cabins. This has now been extended to British Airways’ long-haul premium cabins, allowing members to book Reward Seats in Club World (long-haul business class) and World Traveller Plus (premium economy).

BA is guaranteeing a minimum number of Reward Seats are available to book on every flight to and from London Heathrow and London Gatwick. The amounts are:

  • Eight in Euro/World Traveller
  • Two in World Traveller Plus
  • Four in Club Europe/World

For the first time, RFS bookings are now available to Executive Club Members based in the US. Return flights are available to London Heathrow and London Gatwick from as little as $200 plus 50,000 in World Traveller, and $700 plus 160,000 Avios in Club World.
