British Airways launched its ‘Centenary Offers’ sale on the 28th of June and if you haven’t yet checked to see if any of the fares or holidays on offer work for you it’s time to hurry things up – the British Airways sale ends tomorrow, 16 July 2019 (for travel up to February 2020).

While this sale isn’t quite as generous as some of the sales we’ve seen in the recent past (proof that just because you give a sale a name it doesn’t make the offering any better) and while there aren’t any existing First Class fares on offer (at least none that I’ve seen), there are still some very interesting Business Class fares that are worth checking out.

Note: these are not the only fares that British Airways is advertising on its website – they’re just the better Business Class fares that I could find.

If a destination you’re interested in doesn’t appear in the lists above, you should use the BA Low Fare Finder to see what the better deals are.

Short-Haul Roundtrip Business Class Fares

I’m not going to cover the same ground that I covered when this sale was first launched, but it worth remembering that there are some tempting Business Class fares on offer between London Heathrow and a number of cities far enough away to earn 80 Tier Points in each direction.

Here are 5 such examples (prices are for one-way travel) 

  • Athens – from £201
  • Catania – from £131
  • Helsinki – from £124
  • Istanbul – from £157
  • Paphos – from £158

The Helsinki fare looks the most interesting here as £248 for 160 Tier Points is a very reasonable £1.55/ Tier Point…and that could go a long way to helping someone reach/keep British Airways status for another year.

Bottom Line

Anyone heading to Dubai should consider ignoring the Dubai fare and booking the noticeably cheaper fare to Abu Dhabi before getting a cheap taxi to whichever Dubai hotel they’re staying at – that should save a family quite a bit of money.

Overall, this sale is probably best for those looking to book a transatlantic Business Class fare. With great deals to destinations like New York, San Francisco, and Vancouver and with the £1,502 Toronto fare offering a good way to try out BA’s new Club Suite, there are still quite a few deals still available that are worth considering.
