Whenever and wherever you fly, you can collect 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.

How it works

You’ll collect Avios and Tier Points on almost all our flights except Reward Flights, agency discounted fares and industry discounted fares.

The amount you collect depends on which airline you fly with, the cabin you fly in, the type of ticket you hold and your Executive Club tier. Each airline's policies are set out below.

You collect Avios for any flights you fly yourself, regardless of who bought the ticket. Avios are credited to your account up to three days after a British Airways flight or up to seven days for partners.

You can see how many you'll collect for an upcoming flight in Manage My Booking, or check past flights on your Avios statement.

British Airways flights

You now collect Avios on British Airways-marketed flights based on the price of your ticket and any eligible add-ons, such as extra baggage, that you buy as part of your trip.

These changes, which took effect on 18 October 2023, make it easier for you to work out how many Avios you’ll collect when you fly.

You’ll collect Avios on:

  • Your fare
  • Carrier charges the airline may add
  • Cabin upgrades
  • Seats that you pre-book and pay for
  • Additional baggage

You’ll see this amount referred to on your Avios statement as “total eligible spend”.

The total you spend is then multiplied according to your tier:

x 6 Avios per £

Blue Members collect 6 Avios per pound (GBP)

Executive Club bronze logo.

x 7 Avios per £

Bronze Members collect 7 Avios per pound (GBP)

Executive Club silver logo.

x 8 Avios per £

Silver Members collect 8 Avios per pound (GBP)

x 9 Avios per £

Gold Members collect 9 Avios per pound (GBP)

Non-airline taxes and fees, such as airport charges and government taxes, don’t collect Avios.

If you pay in another currency, the amount you’ve spent is converted to GBP using the IATA 5-day exchange rate that applied on the day of your purchase. We’ll use this converted amount to calculate your Avios.


Tier Points

The way you collect Tier Points and the number of Tier Points needed to reach the next tier haven’t changed.

Tickets bought after 18 October 2023 where the fare paid isn’t available, including flights booked as part of a British Airways vacations package, will continue collecting Avios based on a percentage of how many miles you fly and the cabin you fly in.

On British Airways vacations, you’ll also collect 1 bonus Avios for every £1 you spend on flight + hotel and flight + car packages, and on hotels, cars and sightseeing when booked separately or added to a flight booking.

Executive Club Bronze, Silver and Gold members will collect Tier bonuses of 15%, 30% or 50% extra Avios on top of the base flight award.

For these bookings, use our flight calculator to work out how many Avios you’ll collect before booking.

Some of our oneworld and partner airlines will still award Avios based on the distance flown. See the list below to find out how you’ll collect Avios.
