Here’s how it works:
Select British Airways return flights to or from Europe:
All the available options for your selected flight will be shown before you see the total price.
Don’t forget that as a Member of the Executive Club you’ll still earn Avios and Tier Points on flights which means you can earn up to 3,000 Avios per member. That’s €24 off your next flight.
You can also make savings now on one-way journeys for as little as 750 Avios. For example, you can save from €6 with 750 Avios to €30 with 3,750 Avios.
This new way to spend Avios is available on British Airways flight-only bookings in all cabins. It can also be used for up to eight family and friends in the same booking.
For our European members, we're now trialling the €60 saving on long haul flights from Europe, for example on routes like Frankfurt to Los Angeles.Full Terms and Conditions
Avios can be used as part-payment for bookings made on ba.com or by calling a British Airways Contact Centre. Avios cannot be used to pay for flights booked through a travel agent or at the airport.
Providing you have enough Avios in your account, you can use this payment option when booking British Airways short haul or UK domestic flights in our UK Domestic, Euro Traveller or Club Europe cabins.
This payment option is only available on British Airways and BA CityFlyer operated flights, including one-way journeys, return journeys and open-jaw bookings. The entire itinerary must be eligible for Avios part-payment for it to be applied to the booking.
The Avios payment option is not available for group bookings or itineraries that include hotels or car rental, and will not be shown. You can add a hotel or car rental to your booking separately after you have booked your flight.
The entire itinerary must be eligible for Avios part-payment for it to be applied to the booking.
You can search for flights on ba.com. Once you have selected your flights you will be shown the Avios payment options that are available, provided that your itinerary is eligible and you have sufficient Avios in your account.

This depends on the fare that you have purchased. Bookings made with this payment option will be subject to the standard fare rules associated with the fare purchased.

Partial refunds of fare and surcharges will be credited to your Avios account up to the value of the original part-payment, with any remainder credited to your original method of payment together with government taxes.
