Tiers and benefits

Bronze benefits

Changes to your Tier Point Collection period

We're constantly improving the British Airways Executive Club for our Members, which is why we're changing your Tier Point collection period to make things a little simpler.

The great feeling of being in control. As a Bronze Member, you'll enjoy a streamlined travel experience — we know you're going places and your Bronze membership will help you get there faster.

More rewards, sooner

As a Bronze Member, you'll collect seven Avios per qualifying pound (GBP) spent whenever you fly with British Airways or American Airlines and six Avios per qualifying euro (EUR) with Iberia.

On other oneworld® airlines it depends on how far you fly, your choice of cabin and which airline you fly with.

Business class check-in and priority boarding whenever you fly

Speed through the airport by using our business class check-in desks and priority boarding* - regardless of what cabin you’re travelling in, whenever you fly with British Airways or one of our oneworld airline partners.

You'll see a group number on your boarding pass which will automatically reflect your priority. As your group will be one of the first to board, you’ll be able to settle in and relax before take-off. If you arrive after your priority group has been called, you can use the priority lane to board at your leisure.

*Priority check-in and priority boarding are not available to Bronze Members at London City Airport. Bronze Members travelling through JFK are not eligible to use business class check-in but instead have access to a dedicated Bronze/Ruby check-in lane.

Choose your seats in advance

Take some of the stress out of check-in with free seat selection* for you and everyone on your booking from seven days before time of departure on British Airways flights.

Read our seating guide to learn more

*Not available on group rate bookings and excluding exit row seats. You must be travelling on the booking for the benefit to apply.

Priority at Baggage Arrival Services desks

We don't plan on losing your bags, and we have an excellent record of getting baggage to our customers at their destination on time.

But if your bag doesn't arrive when you do, we'll bring you to the front of the queue, so we can start searching for it sooner.

Keep your Executive Club status while on maternity/paternity/adoption leave

If you're planning on taking maternity/paternity/adoption leave you can apply to keep your British Airways Bronze status even though you take fewer flights during this time. Also, if you enrol your child as part of your household account, we'll give them a welcome gift of 1,000 Avios.

To extend the validity of your card for an additional period, all you need to do is send your documentation to us at baby@ba.com. Once we've verified your documents, we'll send you an email confirming the renewal of your status and walk you through how to enrol your child into the Executive Club as part of a household account.

Terms and Conditions

Sharing your Avios

As a Member, you and up to six other members of your household, including children, can link your Club memberships together for free. You'll continue to collect Avios individually, but we'll pool them for you to spend together, bringing those rewards even closer.

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