Using Avios to book flight for Non member

I have flights booked using Avios from Budapest to YVR via Heathrow. I'd like to use Avios to book the Budapest to Heathrow segment for a non member. Would this be permitted.

Thanks for help.

Are you in a BAEC "Household Account"?

You can use Avios to book for whomever you want - but it obviously will be on a separate booking from your current itinerary.

See this article on how to redeem Avios for those who are not part of your HHA:

Add the person to your Friends & Family list. You can then redeem Avios to purchase their ticket.
