Yet again we’ve seen some amazing British Airways Club Europe deals to exciting destinations across Europe. You might even hit the next level of British Airways elite status by booking yourself onto one of these cracking deals to Catania (CTA) in Sicily, Helsinki (HEL) or Tirana (TIA) and earning 160 Tier Points for the pleasure.

If you’re not sure which of the three you’d prefer, Albania comes highly recommended. This deal is similar to a similar deal earlier this month, though we’re also seeing the added destination of Catania.

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 right up until the warmer weather months of May and June.

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 — Catania (CTA), Helsinki (HEL) 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.
