FREQUENT flyer miles junkies, listen up. If you’re looking to chase the winter sun this festive season, you might want to consider doing so aboard British Airways.

The airline just announced a “double Avios” offer for its Executive Club members – meaning you can earn double the number of Avios air miles when buying flights across the airline’s network and traveling between now and Dec 31.

The valuable mileage currency is available across all routes and tickets options, including First class, Club World business class, World Traveller Plus premium economy and World Traveller economy class for all the long-haul flights.

“We know our Executive Club members love to have a range of ways to collect and spend Avios so we think this offer will prove really popular,” said Vivian Tan-Loh, British Airways’ country manager for Malaysia.

Current members of The Executive Club and those who join up on ba.com are eligible to earn through the deal.

The deal means that customers can accumulate enough Avios from their trip much quicker, perhaps even enough for a reward flight. But Avios points don’t necessarily have to be spent on just flights. They can be used on everything else travel-related, from hotel rooms to car hires and even wine, for those so inclined.
