From 14 November 2018, we’ll be making some important changes to the way you can spend your Avios in southern Africa. This page outlines the introduction of Avios part payment and changes to Reward Flight Saver on British Airways (operated by Comair) flights, within southern Africa.

Discover a new way to save money on flights with Avios part payment

We’re delighted to let you know that from 14 November 2018, when you book at ba.com, you’ll have a new way to save on flights with Avios part payment. Take a look at all the advantages:

  • Use your Avios to discount the cost of every available seat on British Airways (operated by Comair) flights
  • Choose from a range of discounts from as little as 500 Avios*
  • Include up to 8 friends and family in your booking
