Struggling to reach the next level of British Airways elite status? We might have just found the solution that you’re looking for. You can earn a whopping 160 Tier Points for a return flight in Club Europe to Helsinki (HEL), Sofia (SOF) or Tirana (TIA) from London. Prices start at less than £200 return, which is very low for this kind of ticket.

If you’re new to the game, Tier Points are the metric by which British Airways measures elite status in its Executive Club programme. For example, you are required to earn a total of 600 Tier Points (or fly 50 eligible flights) to earn British Airways Silver status (Oneworld Sapphire status), which means that with this one trip, you would be one-quarter of the way to earning the status.

Is it worth it? For me it is, but it depends on how much you fly with BA and its partners to maximise the perks of status.

The fares are available on select dates in March for Helsinki (HEL) and Sofia (SOF) and throughout February and March for Tirana (TIA).

To book, head to Google Flights and change the setting to business class. Next, set the departure airport as London and the arrival destination as the city of your choice — Helsinki (HEL), Sofia (SOF) or Tirana (TIA). Then, all you need to do is scroll through the calendar until you find a suitable set of dates for you. Finally, head to the British Airways website to complete your booking.
