Changes to the BA Executive Club Membership and Air Miles schemes were announced in November ’11.

From 16 November 2011, BA Miles is being renamed Avios, which will be the ‘currency’ for all loyalty and reward programmes owned by British Airways’ parent company- International Airlines Group.

Avios points will be worth exactly the same amount as BA Miles.

Key changes are detailed below:

How membership works
The Executive Club is British Airways’ frequent flyer programme. It is designed to recognise and reward you – with the aim of making your travel even more enjoyable.

Collect and spend BA (Avios) Miles
As a British Airways Executive Club member, you have the chance to collect BA Miles, which you can spend on reward flights or upgrades. The more BA Miles you collect, the further they can take you.

You can collect BA (Avios) Miles by:

• flying with BA
• flying with one of BA’s partner airlines
• staying in selected hotels
• renting cars
• using a British Airways Credit Card or shopping with many other partners.

You can also purchase additional BA Miles to top up your balance.

Collect Tier Points
If you fly with us frequently, you can collect Tier Points, which will progress you through the membership tiers, offering you additional benefits at each tier. Tier Points are collected based on the frequency, travel class and distance of your journey.

You can quickly and simply join the BA Executive Club here >>> or speak to a member of your GDG travel team for further details and enrolment.
