British Airways offers 1,250 Avios-Only seats for next August

British Airways has unveiled a selection of 1,250 Avios-Only seats for August 2024, claiming that these tickets tend to sell out quickly.

This move encompasses sought-after holiday destinations like Corfu, Ibiza, Mallorca, and more, all perfectly timed for the August Bank Holiday. The initiative marks another stride in British Airways’ commitment to Avios-Only flights, which are exclusively available to British Airways Executive Club Members as Rewards Seats, with all seats dedicated to their use. The first Avios-Only flight, which sold out within 24 hours, is set to depart for Sharm El Sheikh from London Gatwick on November 3, 2023.

Expanding on existing options, the initiative introduces flights departing from London City Airport for the first time, offering travellers access to destinations such as Florence, Mallorca, Faro, Corfu, and Ibiza, all aligned with the August Bank Holiday period. With fares starting from £1 and 25,500 Avios, these seats are expected to sell out rapidly.

Booking these Avios-Only seats follows the same process as reserving regular Reward Seats. British Airways American Express Credit Cardholders can use Companion Vouchers, allowing them to secure a second seat for just the taxes and charges or a single seat for half the Avios cost.

This announcement precedes changes to how customers collect Avios, effective from October 18, 2023. Members will earn Avios based on ticket cost rather than flight distance, resulting in a projected 20 percent increase in Avios issuance to the overall member base, benefiting most members.

The British Airways Executive Club offers a free rewards programme for travel enthusiasts, utilising Avios as its currency. Avios can be accumulated through various means, including flying with BA or its partner airlines, taking vacations, making purchases with over 1,500 retailers via British Airways at shopping.ba.com, or through everyday spending with partners like American Express, Nectar, Avis Budget Group, and Marriott.

Members can also accrue Tier Points on British Airways and oneworld(R) partner flights, unlocking exclusive benefits as they progress through the Tiers: Blue, Bronze, Silver, and Gold.

Ryanair announces Summer 2022 schedule at East Midlands, Winter Sun seat sale

Ryanair has announced its Summer 2022 schedule from East Midlands Airport with over 30 routes and 130 weekly flights across 31 European destinations from April.

With the new schedule, UK families and travellers can now book a summer holiday to European hotspots such as Alicante, Barcelona, Lanzarote, Malaga, Mallorca, Rhodes and Tenerife, among others. Alongside the announcement, Ryanair has launched a £19.99 seat sale for travel until the end of October 2022, which must be booked by midnight Saturday, November 6. Tickets are available to book at www.ryanair.com.

We are launching a seat sale to celebrate the Summer 2022 schedule from East Midlands Airport, with fares available from just £19.99 for travel until the end of October 2022 which must be booked on the Ryanair website by midnight Saturday, 6th November 2021. Our customers can now book a Summer getaway to the likes of Alicante, Chania, Lanzarote, Malaga, Mallorca, Rome, Tenerife and many more on amazing low fares.

While Ryanair welcomes the UK Govt’s decision to reduce domestic APD from Summer 2023, it is neither sufficient nor timely enough to kickstart the UK’s tourism recovery, particularly for Summer 2022. Unfortunately, this delay will only damage the airline industry’s ability to rapidly rebuild connectivity, jobs and tourism.

Ryanair calls on the UK Govt to immediately abolish APD for all travel, which would give both tourism and domestic UK connectivity a much-needed boost for this Winter and next Summer.’

Ryanair has also launched a Winter Sun seat sale, with over 530 routes to choose from across the Ryanair network. With over 80,000 seats available, British travellers and can choose from a range of winter sun destinations including Faro, Lanzarote, Malaga and Tenerife this November and December, for fares from £9.99.
