Since the promotion has been going for awhile, you might have forgotten about the Double Avios promotion currently being offered by British Airways Executive Club.
If you haven’t registered, you ought to click here to accomplish that. But more importantly, to receive the bonus you must book your BA flights before 13 December, 2019. You are free to travel up until 30 June, 2020.
All British Airways operated flights will qualify, including UK and South African domestic flights. You can also earn Double Avios for flights between Europe and North America that are operated by American Airlines, Iberia and Finnair, but only if booked as a BA codeshare under a BA flight code.
You won’t receive bonus Avios on any other flight, even if it has a BA flight number (Vueling, etc.)
What does Double Avios actually mean?
You will receive double the BASE Avios that you receive on your flight. Cabin or tier bonuses are not doubled.
If you book a cheap economy fare therefore – one that earns only 25% of miles flown – you will earn an additional 25% of miles flown.
Any flexible or Club World / Europe fares will earn a maximum bonus of 100% of miles flown.
Anything else to consider?
Only your first ten flights (after registering) will receive the extra bonus (note that it’s technically 10 ‘segments’ i.e. 10 one way flights or 5 returns). Frequent flyers may already have used up their 10 flight allowance.
However, if you have some long-haul travel on British Airways already booked for 2020, and might run into the 10 flight cap, you actually might want to delay booking any additional short-haul travel until AFTER 13 December. That way those cheap European fares won’t count against your ten flights, leaving you to earn the double Avios bonus on the higher-earning long-haul flights.
