Customers looking to spend their Avios on British Airways flights will now find it easier than ever thanks to two new features on the airline’s iPhone app.
With just a swipe of a finger, customers can use the new Reward Flight Finder to find flights which can be booked using Avios or a combination of Avios and cash.
The latest release of the app on iPhone and Android also features a completely redesigned flight booking process, using the latest technology and user-friendly design to make flights quicker and easier to book.
British Airways has seen the number of reward flights booked on mobile increase by over 300 per cent in the last year.
On every flight the airline ensures that there are a minimum of six seats available, including two in Club on short and long-haul services.
Kevin McQuillan, British Airways’ head of ba.com and mobile, said: “We know our loyal customers are keen collectors of Avios and are always looking for flights on which to spend them.
“The new Reward Flight Finder makes that process easier and smoother than ever, and the user-friendly interface makes searching for a flight just a finger swipe away.
“And because the number of customers booking through our iPhone app has also grown by over 100 per cent in the last year alone, we understand that they are often short on time when they are on the move. Thanks to this new redesign it is now possible for time-pressed customers to find great prices and book flights in under 60 seconds.”
The new release of the British Airways iPhone app provides customers with a clear view of all flights which have seats that can be bought using Avios, available to destinations around the world.
Customers with Apple and Android smartphones can visit the app stores now to download the newly enhanced British Airways app.

Avios can be collected from flights, hotel stays, car rental, credit cards, and even on everyday things like shopping. Customers can collect Avios every time they fly with British Airways and Iberia, or any oneworld airline partner, with a minimum of 125 Avios per flight.
Off-peak reward flights start from as little as 8,000 Avios return and off-peak upgrades from 3,750 one way.
Prices shown on the Reward Flight Finder on the app are one way, not including taxes and charges. The Avios price you pay depends on the date of your flight. It costs fewer Avios to fly during off-peak periods.
