You can access this offer on BA’s page here.
Note that the offer is only available for Executive Club members whose account address is in the UK and the travel is valid only ex-London.
Good way to get some value out from a small amount of Avios if you are planning to purchase a long-haul flight from London completed before June 30th.
Here are the terms and conditions of this award discount:
This offer is available to British Airways Executive Club Members resident in the United Kingdom who have an Avios balance of 5000 or more (Eligible Members).
Eligible Members must be logged into their Executive Club account at ba.com or call via a British Airways contact centre to participate in this offer.
The offer is available when booking a British Airways operated long haul flight in a World Traveller (economy) and World Traveller Plus (premium economy) cabins only, departing from the UK (Eligible Flight) and travelling before 30 June 2019. Any routes from the UK to the following long haul countries are excluded from this offer: Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria and St Petersburg in Russia. For clarification, any booking that has any flight operated by another carrier e.g. American Airlines, will not be eligible for the discount, even if a British Airways flight is part of the booking.
In a non-offer period on long haul World Traveler (economy) flights, 14,500 Avios is needed for a discount of £90 per person on a return flight. From 8 February to 12 February 2019 5000 Avios will give a discount of £100 for a return flight, or 2500 Avios for a discount of £50 on a one-way flight.

If there is more than one person on the booking, the Member must have 5000 Avios per person in their account to take advantage of this offer. E.g. for a return booking with 4 people, the Member must have 20,000 Avios to save £100 per person.
