What are Avios?
In November 2011, the British Airways Airmiles program was completely overhauled, resulting in a new loyalty scheme and a new collectable currency unit – the Avios.
Under this scheme, you sign up for an account to collect Avios. Once you have collected enough, you then redeem your Avios. This can be on reduced price flights, but as you will see from our guides, there is much you can spend your Avios on.
There were many changes to the original Airmiles loyalty scheme when it switched to Avios. Airmiles has been totally retired now. This page tell a bit more of the history of Avios and the change from Airmiles.
