British Airways ties up from time to time with Citibank, who are their bankers around here, and offer their customers a discount for booking with BA. Personally, I am a British Airways Gold customer, so I do use the discount from time to time to be able to fly BA and credit those miles to my BA account.
Citibank/BA are offering 10%-12% discount on base fare if you travel from their Indian stations (Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai & Hyderabad) to go over to the UK, USA, Canada and various points in Europe. Discounts are available using this specific link, and you need to make your reservation on BA before June 30, 2016 for travel out of India originating by December 31, 2016. The discount is valid only on round trip tickets.
To be precise, the following discount is being offered on booking various fare classes:
- 12% off: Booking in First Class [F], Club World (Business) [J/C/D], World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) [W/E] and World Traveller (Economy) [Y/B/H].
- 10% off: Booking in First Class [A], Club World (Business) [R/I], World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) [T] & World Traveller (Economy) [K/M/L/V/S/N].
How to Find?
You need to follow the link shared by Citibank, and then look for flight results which say discounted. For instance, these.
Remember, you need to be holding specific Citibank cards to be able to get these discounts. Citi Prestige, Citi Reward & PremierMiles are the cards this offer is valid on. Needless to say, the cards need to be issued in India. The T&C for PremierMiles are here, and for Prestige are here. Also, the promotion is valid only on BA flights and not on codeshares or franchise flights.
This is another great promotion from BA, however, I wish they would make this a year long promotion rather than renew it every few months. I’ve gotten some good savings in the past using this promo.
Are you going to be using this promotion for your upcoming travels with British Airways?
