British Airways has extended Executive Club status for another year. The move means that members with a tier point collection end date between January and March 2022 will receive another year of their current status.
It also means that no British Airways Executive Club member renewing over this period, including bronze, silver and gold card holders, will lose their tier status, regardless of how many tier points they have earned. This benefit comes in addition to a 25 per cent threshold reduction in tier status which applies until June 2022.
Niall Rooney, British Airways’ loyalty manager, said: “We want to thank our customers for their continued loyalty. Many of our Executive Club members haven’t had the chance to use their benefits as normal, by further extending their tier status, none of them will miss out on the amazing benefits they have earned. For our members that have a flight booked, we are proud to be launching more benefits. From today, our silver and gold members can enjoy more from our award-winning lounges.”
BA has also announced that all silver and gold members can use pre-flight dining available at selected North American lounges, including New York JFK, Boston, Chicago and Washington. Meanwhile, the Concorde Room which is situated in Heathrow Terminal 5 and New York JFK will be accessible to Gold Guest List members, regardless of how many tier points they earned in their previous tier point collection year.
In February, British Airways announced a six-month extension to all Executive Club vouchers, due to expire before 31 December 2021.
This was the third extension that has been applied, following similar extensions in March 2020 and October 2020 and included Gold Upgrade Vouchers and American Express Companion Vouchers (see below).
British Airways is also adding an additional six-months validity to all new Companion Voucher or Travel Together tickets earned between June 2020 and the end of December 2021.
The reduced amount of Tier Points needed to reach each Tier results is:
Bronze: 225 Tier Points or 18 eligible flights
Silver: 450 Tier Points or 37 eligible flights
Gold: 1125 Tier Points
