British Airways Extends Executive Club Tier Status for Another Year

(09 Mar 2021)
British Airways has confirmed that it is extending the
tier status of Executive
Club members for a further year.

This means that any member
renewing in 2021 will enjoy their status for another year,
irrespective of how many Tier Points they earn.

Eligible
members will receive an additional 12 months on their Tier status
expiry date which will be updated in their Executive Club accounts
this week.


Niall Rooney, Head of the British Airways
Executive Club, said, “We know many of our members haven’t been able to travel, but
today’s news means they can keep their benefits for longer and use
them when they’re able to fly again. We hope this complements a
number of measures we’ve already introduced, including our book
with confidence commitment, which provides flexibility and
reassurance for our customers.”

The tier status extension means
that qualifying members will have received two years of
protection. It also means that no British Airways Executive Club
member will lose their Tier status in 2021.

In February, British Airways also announced a six-month
extension to all Executive Club vouchers, due to expire before 31
December 2021. This was the third extension that was applied,
following similar extensions in March 2020 and October 2020 and
included Gold Upgrade Vouchers and American Express Companion
Vouchers. The airline 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.

British Airways has also reduced the amount of Tier
Points needed to reach each Tier by 25 per cent for those whose
Tier Point collection year ends before July 2022.
