There are new destinations to explore, exclusive drinks to enjoy and even more Avios-only flights join the network

Winter sun in Fuerteventura
We recently announced that we’re starting to fly to Cincinnati and Sharm El Sheikh, but we aren’t stopping there. Just in time for a dose of winter sun, we are expanding our reach in the Canary Islands – one of Europe’s most sun-soaked and family-friendly archipelagos. Alongside the current routes to Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, from November 2023 you’ll be able to spend your Avios on flights to Fuerteventura, with a flight time of four hours and 15 minutes. The second largest Canary Island is perfect for water sports (Corralejo Beach is the place to go) and day trips for avid hikers (who should plot a route on Lobos Island). And why not relax by the pool at this adults-only resort?

More Avios-only flights to European hot spots
In April, we introduced an all-new concept of Avios-only flights, which meant that, exclusively as an Executive Club Member, you could book any seat as a Reward Flight seat. We started with two much-loved business and leisure locations, Sharm El Sheikh and Geneva. Now there are more Avios-only flights – this time, you can choose from five top European hot spots, including Gran Canaria, Barcelona and Lanzarote.

Feel the buzz
Betty Buzz – the premium sparkling soda brand and brainchild of actress-entrepreneur Blake Lively – is launching exclusively with BA Euroflyer on flights from London Gatwick this month. You can buy Betty Buzz Sparkling Grapefruit and Sparkling Lemon Lime online at highlifeshop.com and get them delivered at home, or on board your London Gatwick/Heathrow flight. And did you know, you can use your Avios to pay?

Make an Avios donation to charity today – and we’ll match it
The BA Better World Community Fund delivers life-changing opportunities in the communities we serve. You can also get involved by donating Avios to selected projects that are crowdfunding. When you donate to a project using your Avios, British Airways Executive Club will donate the equivalent value of your Avios in pounds to your chosen project, up to a total of £100,000. Terms apply.
