British Airways have announced a promotion offering customers the chance to fly to over 90 long-haul destinations for half the amount of Avios normally required.
The offer is only available from London Heathrow or Gatwick but destinations are as wide-ranging as Hong Kong, Bermuda and New York.
It applies to return flights in the World Traveller economy cabin.
A flight to the Seychelles used to require 32, 500 Avios, but now it’s just 16,250.
Similarly, a flight to Singapore was 45,500 but in the promotion just 22,750 Avios are needed.
Customers will pay a cash amount on top of this to cover taxes, fees and carrier charges.
Furthermore, the number of Avios required to discount the cost of flights in the World Traveller cabin through Avios part payment has also been halved.
Customers choosing to cut the cost of flights by using Avios part payment can pick from a range of savings based on destination and cabin
To take advantage of the sale, customers must book before 17 June and travel between 1 September 2018 and 31 May 2019.
James Hillier from the British Airways Executive Club, said: “Our Executive Club Members appreciate a range of ways to collect and spend Avios so it’s great to be launching this promotion which makes reward flights even more accessible.
“This means that customers can go sandboarding in Dubai, spot stars in Los Angeles or visit Singapore’s Orchard Road for half the number of Avios normally required.”
The Avios scheme was created in 2011 through the Avios Travel Rewards Programme.
However, this is closing in July as it is consolidated into the British Airways Executive Club.
The points will stay the same and be offered for the same value.
This means all points can be moved and will not be lost.
Avios commercial director, Chris Treadwell reassures that it is “good news for members” as “outwardly there will be very little change.”
The new promotion follows British Airways’ move in April to introduce cheaper flights for passengers with a “basic fare” for economy class, restricting travellers to carry on hand-baggage only.
Passengers who do not wish to check in a bag or select a seat have will now have to option to pay less.
Those chasing the “basic fare” option will still receive the two-item hand luggage limit.
Allocated seating, food and drink and onboard entertainment will still be permitted to the lower fare passengers.
