British Airways 2x Avios for 2019 flights purchased by April 19

British Airways celebrates 100 years by awarding double Avios (2x) points for six flights flown by Dec 31, 2019. This offer includes all British Airways flights worldwide and North-America-Europe flights on BA, American, Finnair and Iberia.

Registration is required and only flights booked March 21-April 19 are eligible.

British Airways 100% Avios Mar21-Apr19 bookings

This is a good offer, but I was disappointed when I realized it only applies to bookings ticketed by April 19. That limits its usefulness for those of us who do not want to buy all our 2019 airline tickets in the next month.

Still, I showed yesterday in my article displaying summer fares from California to Europe that American, British Airways and Finnair have some of the lowest priced flights to Europe in June, July and August.

This might be a good deal for my next airline ticket purchase. And hopefully yours too.

You can join British Airways Executive Club and then register for this offer if you are not currently a member.
