You earn Tier Points every time you fly with us, our subsidiaries and our oneworld airline partners, giving you a greater choice and flexibility when choosing who to fly with.
Almost all flights award Tier Points. The only exceptions are reward flights, agency and industry discounted fares and flights with an airline that is not part of oneworld.
|Airlines that award Tier Points|
|airberlin||American Airlines||British Airways||Cathay Pacific|

Reward flights and agency or industry discounted bookings do not qualify.
Once you earn enough Tier Points for the next membership tier, you'll be awarded that status straight away*. It lasts for the rest of your current membership year and for the full following membership year — unless you reach the next tier in the meantime.
For instance, if you start your membership year as a Blue Member and earn 300 Tier Points, you'll become a Bronze Member with all of the benefits.
You will continue to earn Tier Points when you fly and if you reach 600 within the same year, you'll become a Silver Member.
Once your Tier Points reset to zero at the end of your membership year — the anniversary of when you joined — you will stay as a Silver Member for the next membership year.
*This can take up to 48 hours to appear on your account.
Yes, your Tier Points will expire at the end of each membership year – the anniversary of when you joined the Club. They will then be added to your Lifetime Tier Points which is the total Tier Points you’ve ever earned with the Club. We’ll offer you recognition and rewards for your lifetime of loyalty.
Your membership year-end date and Lifetime Tier points are shown on your account page:
It’s really important that you remember to add your Club membership number every time you make a booking so that your Tier Points are automatically added once you have flown. Tier Points for British Airways flights are normally credited soon after your flight but Tier Points for other carriers may take up to four weeks to be processed.
If for any reason you believe Tier Points (or Avios) are missing, you may be able to claim them back within 6 months, providing you still have the ticket number.
In addition, new Members can claim for British Airways flights flown up to three months before joining.
If you can’t find your ticket number, don’t worry — you can contact us or call your local Service Centre and they’ll be able to help you.
