We have been waiting for it a long time, but British Airways has finally extended elite status for Executive Club members by 12 months!
The main good news is that all Executive Club members get their status extended by 12 months.
Another positive thing is that the Tier Points required for re-qualifying have been reduced by 25%. The new thresholds are:
- Gold: 1,125 Tier Points
- Silver: 450 Tier Points
- Bronze: 225 Tier Points
British Airways Executive Club elite members should soon receive an email similar to the one below:
We all love to hear some good news every now and then. And so today, we wanted to tell you something that we hope will make you smile.
As the world prepares to fly once more, we know there is still a long road ahead, and we wanted you to know that we’ll be right there with you every step of the journey.
To say thank you for all your loyalty and support, we’ve added 12 months extra onto your Gold Executive Club membership. So you have more time to enjoy your benefits, whenever you’re ready to return to the skies.
What’s more, it will be even easier to retain your Gold status next time you’re up for renewal, as we’ve decreased the amount of Tier Points needed by 25%. This is the same for upgrade thresholds too, making that next Tier more achievable.
You can read more information here, and other ways we’re supporting you during this period.
We hope that put a smile on your face. Thank you again for your loyalty.
Your Executive Club Team
This is a late, but very welcome, move by BA. I am not really sure what advantage they saw in delaying the news for so long when most airline programmes extended status months ago, but at least they have now seen sense.
If you haven’t received an email yet, you can read more details on the BA website here.
Have you been impressed by BA’s response to COVID-19 and will it affect how much you fly with them in future?
