British Airways has just announced that they will extend statuses by 12 months due to Covid-19. Furthermore, tier points needed to qualify will be reduced.
The following details can now be found on their homepage about the British Airways status extension due to Covid-19:
All members will benefit, starting with those who have a Tier Point collection end date of July 2020, through to June 2021.
What’s more, it will be even easier to retain your 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 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
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, BA applied 6-month expiration extension to any current vouchers.
