A busy fall for Avios in Canada
The British Airways Executive Club has been making headlines this fall with some good news for Canadian travelers. Let’s do a round-up of the promotions and redemptions news so far this fall.
Double Avios on British Airways flights
You can double your Avios miles on 10 British Airways flights from now until the end of 2018. A great way to grow your Avios balance faster if you happen to fly BA (AA, IB or FY on transatlantic flights). It’s important to register to the promotion before you book.

30% bonus Avios on transfers to British Airways Executive Club
The yearly promotion is back. The transfer from American Express Membership Rewards points to British Airways Avios comes with a 30% bonus. That’s a more then last year’s 25%. Although I have not received the promotion email, and after confirming with the American Express agent, British Airways will honor the 30% bonus on American Express Membership Rewards points.
The British Airways Executive Club offers some great reward flights opportunities for the following sectors:
- Canada-US : A one-way Toronto-Dallas flight with AA will cost 10,000 Avios & $58.93;
- US domestic flights: A one-way Boston-Los Angeles with AA costs 12,500 & $7.31;
- Great reward flights on Japanese domestic flights, very low taxes & fees;
- Australia: Qantas flights will allow you do discover the continent;
- Great value on Qatar Airways Business class redemptions;
- and much more.
Aer Lingus servicing Montreal (YUL)
Aer Lingus has announced in September that it will start service to Montreal (YUL) next summer 2019. Starting August 8, 2019, Aer Lingus will start connecting Dublin & Montreal.
This spells a lot of good news for those who will want to cross the pond with low fees. Aer Lingus rewards flights cannot be booked on britishairways.com which counterintuitive since they’re owned by the same parent company. However, you can call BA and book your Aer Lingus low cost transatlantic reward ticket after checking availability on United.com.
