Switched on companies earn points on three major global airlines.
Sign up to On Business and you will:
- earn On Business points with American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia and all eligible partners
- earn on every qualifying flight booked through ba.com, our service centre or your travel agent
To start collecting points, just enter your On Business member number when you book, or give it to a nominated Travel Agent.
Plus if you've already flown as a member, you can claim for flights up to 4 months after the date of travel.
You need to earn 7000 On Business points for a return reward flight from Heathrow to New York in economy.
You need to earn 2000 On Business points for a return reward flight from Heathrow to Paris or Amsterdam in economy.
If you book flights using British Airways American Express® Corporate Card or Corporate Card Plus, you'll enjoy even more benefits:
- earn 50% more On Business points to spend on flights and upgrades1 (terms, taxes, fees and charges apply)
- employee Cardmembers who are part of the Executive Club can earn Avios when they charge virtually all business expenses to their Card, in addition to the Avios they earn every time they travel on an eligible British Airways flight2.
The annual fee for the British Airways American Express Corporate Card is £50. The annual fee for the British Airways American Express Corporate Card Plus is £225. Terms and Conditions apply.
1. Companies participating in the British Airways American Express Corporate Card programme receive 50% more On Business Points than those solely participating in the On Business programme. Reward flights and flight upgrades on British Airways only and subject to applicable taxes, fees, charges and surcharges. British Airways On Business Terms and Conditions apply to On Business Points redemptions and detailed information can be found at www.britishairways.com/travel/on-business-terms-conditions or by calling 0844 493 0748.
2. Avios will not accrue in respect of any Cash Withdrawal, American Express Travellers Cheque purchases, Foreign Exchange Transactions or fees. Avios will accrue in respect of spending in each month provided your account is not more than 60 days overdue for payment. Avios will not accrue in respect of amounts which are subsequently recredited to your account because of refunds.
Those in the know don't just collect points for their company when they fly, they collect Avios for themselves too.
If you'd like to join them, simply sign up to the Executive Club – it's free and open to anyone. After that you can start picking up Avios to spend on personal reward flights and upgrades.
Take advantage of our discounts
We understand that sometimes a quick cash discount on flights will suit your business better than collecting points. That's why we're the only programme to give you that option on selected flights when you book.
Just choose to earn points or get a discount when you make a booking.
Boost your earning power by moving up the Tiers
Once you've joined, you'll automatically enter Tier On1 of the On Business programme and progress through to Tiers On2 and On3 as you spend more on company travel. When you reach a new tier level, you'll be able to earn extra points for every £1 spent.
If you spend the amount needed to move up a tier within a year, you will go up there and then.
Just estimate how much your company spends on travel each year and see which tier you can achieve.

You'll earn one return reward flight from Heathrow to New York in economy when you spend £9000.
