Blue benefits

Avios - the reward currency of the Club

As a Blue Member, you'll collect Avios when you fly and can keep topping up that balance by collecting on your everyday spend, hotel stays, car hire and much more.

When you’ve collected enough you can spend your Avios on flights and upgrades, or choose from a range of other rewards.

Collecting Avios

Other benefits of Blue Membership

You and up to six other members of your household, including children, can pool your Avios into a Household Account. So you can bring rewards even closer.

You can also spend your Avios with people outside of your household, by adding them to your Family and Friends list.

Collect Tier Points to reach the next tier

You'll earn Tier Points when you travel with us and our oneworld® airline partners.

Tier Points move you through the tiers of the Club, unlocking more exclusive benefits with each new membership level – from extra baggage to lounge access.

How Tier Points work

Save your travel information

You can save your seating preferences and meal choices in your account, so you won't have to provide them every time you travel.

Added reassurance when you fly

We always try to get you to your destination with minimum fuss every time.

But if your flight is busy, your Blue Membership gives you priority over non-Members on standby and reservation waiting lists.
