British Airways Executive Club has brought back its popular triple Avios promotion for up to eight segments flown between January 1 – March 31, 2017.
The offer is valid on British Airways flights worldwide (including Comair) and BA coded American Airlines, Iberian Finnair and OpenSkies flights between Europe and North America, Mexico or Puerto Rico.
You can access and register for this offer on BA’s website here.
Note that the triple bonus is calculated on the base Avios that you earn at the economy level even if you are flying in world traveler plus, business or first class cabins.
This offer is valid for British Airways Executive Club members worldwide (all should be able to register).
Not sure if BA feels that the travel during the first quarter in 2017 is softer than expected. Why would they otherwise offer such a generous promotion when the previous one just ended?
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
