  • Gold members with renewal dates July-September 2022 will be extended for a further 12 months
  • Silver and bronze do not get any further renewal
  • However, Silver members with renewal dates July-September 2022 will given a 50% reduction in the amount of tier points needed (From 600 to 300 TPs)

See post 796 for further details https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/32452931-post796.html

20 Sep 21 Update - see post #3594 onwards

21 Dec 21 Update - see post #3942 onwards

20 Apr 22 Update - see post #4483 onwards

The graph Illustrated below covers simple renewal milestones (collection year start/end dates) onto a blue bar (mid blue represents your current membership year; dark blue represents the extension periods). This does not touch the effect tier jumps have on the extension end dates. You can find confirmation of the extension being added to your BAEC account via "My Executive Club". This is signified by the "Card expiry date"


Updated 20 September 2021


Coronavirus: How the Executive Club is supporting you
Were adding 12 months extra onto your Executive Club membership so you have more time to enjoy your benefits, whenever youre ready to fly.

All members will benefit, starting with those who have a Tier Point collection end date of July 2020, through to June 2021.

Whats more, it will be even easier to retain your status next time youre up for renewal, as weve decreased the amount of Tier Points needed by 25%. This is the same for upgrades thresholds too, making that next Tier more achievable.

This results in lower Tier qualification thresholds, as shown below:

Bronze: 225 Tier Points, or 18 eligible flights
Silver: 450 Tier Points or 37 eligible flights
Gold: 1125 Tier Points
Gold Guest List: 3,750 Tier Points (to attain), 2,250 Tier Points (to retain) [not in the original email but understood to be true]

You'll still need a minimum of 2 eligible flights for Bronze and 4 for Silver.

NB: These reduced qualification/requalification thresholds apply until 31 December 2022, regardless of when your membership year ends. They won't show on the BA app or website these will still say you need 300/600/1500 tier points but should you pass the reduced threshold for a higher tier, your level will increase as normal. If you requalify on an existing tier, your status will be extended by the end of January 2023.

To ensure our Members still have the opportunity to use their Gold Upgrade Vouchers, Companion Vouchers and Travel Together Tickets earned via a British Airways credit card, weve applied 6-month expiration extension to any current vouchers.

See link to BA site for further FAQs.

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, weve added 12 months extra onto your Gold Executive Club membership. So you have more time to enjoy your benefits, whenever youre ready to return to the skies.

Whats more, it will be even easier to retain your Gold status next time youre up for renewal, as weve decreased the amount of Tier Points needed by 25%. This is the same for upgrade thresholds too, making that next Tier more achievable.

With a renewal date of 9 June 2021 why wouldn't you be included?

The 12-month status extension will be applied automatically to those memberships with Tier Point collection end dates of July 2020 June 2021. There is no need to contact us to arrange this.

Finally, seems like a sensible move, particularly with the reduced TP requirements for next year. Appreciate it will be less palatable for those who would have gone up a level if flights hadn't been cancelled, and I hope BA will show some discretion here.

Hey KARFA not sure if I am being a bit slow here! I will drop to Silver 31 JUL 2020 based on ending 08/06 at 755? So the bonus year will not help my Gold ?

A great move by BA. I've not yet had the e-mail yet, but hoping I won't slip through the cracks! Re-qualified for Gold on 8th June, so in theory this should give me Gold through to June 2022 (I guess technically through to July 2022 with card expiry) which (if it happens) is great news.

BA does state Tier Point collection year rather than card expiry, so it would seem youre unfortunately out of scope for this recent announcement.
