Splurge those Avios on once-in-a-lifetime breaks with British Airways Holidays, plus take your England Rugby viewing experience to new heights

Pay for your British Airways Holiday with Avios  
In a spell of good news for our Executive Club Members, you’re now able to spend those hard-earned Avios on package holidays with
British Airways Holidays. And that’s on any British Airways Holidays escape you’d like: from no-fuss trips to big city New York to stress-free adventures in the sunny Caribbean. Better yet, Avios can also be spent on your fly-drive holidays and on the kind of experiences that make a holiday that bit more special, such as tours of Park Güell in Barcelona (opening image) or scaling the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. To find out more about spending with Avios, click here.

Exclusive early access with England Rugby
Calling all rugby fans: England Rugby Travel offers you the chance to see the biggest England Rugby games as part of the ultimate fan experience. With it, you can book all-inclusive packages that include timely travel, hand-picked accommodation and some juicy extras, too – all on top of your guaranteed match tickets.


Twickenham, the home of England Rugby

Other perks up for grabs include an invite to the Scrum Bar, where you can soak up the pre-match atmosphere alongside like-minded England fans. You’ll also be welcomed to the exclusive England Rugby House – ‘your home away from home’ – where you can get even closer to some of the biggest names ever to wear the white shirt.

Best of all, England Rugby Travel is offering Executive Club Members early access to ticket-inclusive packages for England’s Guinness Six Nations match against France next year. To sign up exclusively for early access, please click here

Supporting the Turkey/Syria Earthquake Appeal with Avios
Together with our partner IAG Cargo and Khalsa Aid UK – a humanitarian aid organisation that supports people in crisis across the globe – last month we transported more than four tonnes of vital aid to Istanbul for distribution to the many communities that have been affected by the recent devastating earthquakes. To continue to support and aid the countries, all on-board donations are being redirected to the Turkey/Syria Earthquake Appeal, launched by the Disasters Emergency Committee or DEC.

As an Executive Club Member, you also have the option to donate to the fund using Avios. To find out more about how to donate, click here.

What’s on in lounge this month
Fancy a pre-flight sugar fix? This April, our lounges at Heathrow will be getting into the Easter spirit with help from not one, but two, luxury chocolate brands. First up, Swiss chocolatier Läderach, which will be on hand with fluffle of Easter Bunny chocolates for peckish lounge guests. Then, Easter-themed snacks come courtesy of Hu Kitchen, which champions fair trade and organic chocolate from ethical sources. See you there.
