British Airways economy and premium economy class sale now live

Share it!

Continental Club has picked up on the latest round of economy and premium economy (or “World Traveller” and “World Traveller Plus”) British Airways sales departing from the UK. Here's the link to British Airways' Low Fare Finder for a full list of sale destinations.

Economy class fares to North America remain pretty much the same as with previous sales, but the two eye-catching fares are to Colombo (£495) and to Chengdu (£508). Colombo's especially attractive as it's the launch-point for many ultra-cheap business/first class fares.

Quoting Continental Club:

Travel to US (excl FL, NV) destinations is available for selected outbound travel dates between 15 September 2013 and 27 March 2014. Travel to Caribbean destinations is available for selected outbound travel dates between 3 July 2013 and 17 October 2013 Travel to African destinations is available for selected outbound travel dates between 9 October 2013 and 27 January 2014. Travel to Middle Eastern destinations is available for selected outbound travel dates between 27 June 2013 and 27th March 2014. Travel to Far Eastern destinations is available for selected outbound travel dates between 1 November 2013 and 27th March 2014. Other destinations vary.

Don't forget that even the cheapest-of-cheap British Airways fares receive one Avios point per mile. Two if you're a BA Silver or Gold member.

So who might this sale appeal to? Most probably those who:

  • want a cheap-ish positioning flight to Colombo,
  • are BA Silver/Gold members who wants to give a quick boost of Avios,
  • are planning travel to non-sale destinations, but can afford the time to build extra stops and separate tickets to take advantage of these cheaper fares (like me!)
