British Airways announces second Avios-Only long-haul flight after rapid sell-out

British Airways has published its next long-haul Avios-Only flight, after its first one sold out in less than nine hours.

The flight will depart from London Heathrow on 15 February 2025, headed for the capital of Barbados, Bridgetown. The return flight will also be an Avios-Only flight, taking place seven days later on 22 February 2025. The launch of the flight comes as British Airways celebrates 70 years of flying to the Caribbean island.

Customers can purchase seats on the flight from just £150 + 70,000 Avios. World Traveller Plus seats are from £330 + 135,000 Avios, and Club World (business class) seats are available from £450 + 200,000 Avios.

British Airways launched Avios-Only flights last year, with the first long-haul one to Dubai selling every seat across all cabins in less than nine hours after it went on sale for travel in October half term 2024.

Avios-Only flights are made up of 100% Reward Seats. Reward Seats are those that can be purchased using Avios at static rates. British Airways guarantees a minimum of 12 and 14 Reward Seats on standard short and long-haul flights respectively, whereas Avios-Only flights mean that every seat is available to purchase using Avios.

Members booking the Avios-Only flight can do so in any cabin as they normally would through ba.com meaning that those with British Airways American Express Credit Cards will also have the option to use their Companion Vouchers. Companion Vouchers entitle Members to a second seat for just the taxes and charges, or one seat for half the amount of Avios. Those with Barclaycard Avios cards can also use their Upgrade Vouchers.
