Bronze benefits

The great feeling of being in control

As a Bronze Member, you’ll enjoy a streamlined travel experience — we know you’re going places and your Bronze membership will help you get there faster.

More rewards, sooner

As a Bronze Member, you’ll collect 25% more bonus Avios whenever you fly with British Airways. This tier bonus is in addition to the Avios bonuses available for travelling in our premium cabins, bringing you closer to your next reward flight, upgrade, hotel stay or car hire.

Some of our partner airlines also offer tier bonuses, helping you to grow your Avios balance faster. For details, check the individual airlines found on our flight collection page.

Business class check-in and priority boarding whenever you fly

Speed through the airport by using our business class check-in desks and priority boarding* – regardless of what cabin you’re travelling in, whenever you fly with British Airways or one of our oneworld® airline partners.

* Priority check-in and priority boarding not available to Bronze Members at London City Airport.

Choose your seats in advance

Your Bronze membership can take some of the stress out of check-in and give you a better selection of seats by opening up free seat selection from seven days before departure on British Airways flights.
(Not available on hand baggage only (Basic) fares or group rate bookings and excluding exit row seats on long haul flights.)

Priority at Baggage Arrival Services desks

We don’t plan on losing your bags, and we have an excellent record of getting baggage to our customers at their destination on time. But if your bag doesn’t arrive when you do, we’ll bring you to the front of the queue, so we can start searching for it sooner.

Keep your Executive Club status while on maternity/paternity/adoption leave

If you are planning on taking maternity/paternity/adoption leave you can apply to keep your BA Bronze status even though you take fewer flights during this time. Also, if you enrol your child as part of your household account, we will give them a welcome gift of 1,000 Avios.

To extend the validity of your card for an additional period, all you need to do is send your documentation to us at [email protected]. Once we have verified your documents, we will send you an email confirming the renewal of your status and walk you through how to enrol your child into the Executive Club as part of a household account.

Sharing your Avios

As a Member, you and up to six other members of your household, including children, can link your Club memberships together for free. You’ll continue to collect Avios individually, but we’ll pool them for you to spend together, bringing those rewards even closer.

You can also share your Avios with people outside your household, by adding them to your Family and Friends list.

Saving your preferences

You can save your seating and meal preferences with us, so there’s no need to remember them every time you travel. We’ll do our best to provide your preferred choices wherever the option is available.

  • preferred seats allocated wherever possible when travelling on a fully flexible ticket
  • preferred special meal delivered on catered flights
