British Airways doubles flyer points for UAE
Dubai, September 13, 2012
British Airways is offering double Avios frequent flyer points for Executive Club members on flights to the UK, Europe, US and Canada for bookings made until September 30.
The double points offer is valid for travel between September 2 and March 31, a statement from the airline said.
Club members would normally expect to collect a minimum of around 3,400 Avios points by booking the Dubai or Abu Dhabi-London route. This offer would entitle them to double those points and get closer to booking a reward flight, an upgrade, a hotel stay, or car rental, the statement said.
Avios points are the currency of British Airways’ loyalty programme, Executive Club. Frequent flyers collect Avios when they fly either with British Airways or their partner airlines. They can also collect Avios on hotel stays, holidays and car rental, and even when they are shopping, through deals with a wide range of partners.
Paolo De Renzis, regional commercial manager, Middle East, said: “British Airways offers great value for customers, whether flying to the UK or other destinations in the network. The flights are well timed for connections beyond the UK, giving passengers ample opportunity to make use of the facilities at the award-winning London Heathrow Terminal 5.”
“British Airways’ great value fares on flights to the UK, Europe, US and Canada combined with double Avios make September to March an ideal period to plan a well-deserved holiday, make a business trip or travel abroad to see family and friends.”
During this booking period fares to the UK and Europe start from Dh13,170 ($3,586.12) in Club World (business), Dh5,380 in World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and Dh3,760 in World Traveller (economy).
Fares to the US and Canada start from Dh15,100 in Club World, Dh9,060 in World Traveller Plus and Dh4,910 in World Traveller.
British Airways’ Executive Club is free to join and provides a range of benefits, including exclusive access to special offers and promotions. Avios can be redeemed for flights and upgrades, hotel stays, and car rentals.
Members can register their details for easy booking and save meal and seat preferences, while those in the higher membership tiers receive priority check-in, seat selection, lounge access and free spa treatments at Heathrow and JFK airports. – TradeArabia News Service
