Collecting Avios and Tier Points on flights

Tailfins of oneworld member airlines.

Whenever and wherever you fly, you can earn Avios — with British Airways, our oneworld® alliance partners and our other airline partners. You can earn Tier Points too, on British Airways and oneworld flights.

Almost all flights are eligible. The only flights you do not earn Avios or Tier Points on are reward flights and agency and industry discounted fares.

The amount you collect depends on which airline you fly, how far you fly, the cabin you fly in, the type of ticket you hold and your Executive Club tier. The easiest way to work it out is to use our flight calculator.

Flight calculator — how many Avios and Tier Points will I collect?

To find out the specific details of each airline's policies, please see below.

Cabin and tier bonuses

The further you move through the tiers of the Club the more Avios you'll collect. Bronze, Silver and Gold Members earn the following tier bonuses on British Airways flights:

  • Bronze Members — 25% extra Avios
  • Silver Members — 100% extra Avios
  • Gold Members — 100% extra Avios

The tier bonus is in addition to cabin bonuses for travelling in premium economy, business and first class.

Many of our partner airlines also offer tier and cabin bonuses. For details, check the individual airlines below.

Codeshare flights

The table below shows when you will collect Avios and Tier Points on codeshare flights.

Have you ever been at the airport and noticed that your flight has multiple flight numbers and wondered why this happens? Flights which have different flight numbers are called codeshare flights. This is where two or more airlines share the same flight and the flight will be operated by one airline such as British Airways but it could have a BA flight number or a flight number from a different airline. The Avios and Tier Points that you earn depends on both the airline flight number that is on your ticket and the partnership agreement in place with that partner.
