Uber users will soon be able to collect Avios — the program currency for British Airways Executive Club and other loyalty programs — by simply linking their Executive Club and Uber accounts, according to an announcement.

Beginning later this month, members of the program will be eligible to collect one Avios for every British pound spent on any ride, whether that be by car, coach or train, booked on the Uber app in the UK. These can then be put toward worldwide flights, upgrades and extras.

To celebrate the new partnership, members who link their Executive Club and Uber accounts via the Uber app will receive 250 bonus Avios.

Avios is a global loyalty currency used by multiple airlines, including British Airways, Iberia, Aer Lingus, Vueling and Qatar Airways. It can be collected by flying worldwide and through everyday spending, with Uber becoming the latest addition to the British Airways Executive Club to help boost travelers’ balances.

Ian Romanis, head of retail and customer relationship management at British Airways, said, “Avios helps to open up the world, wherever our customers wish to travel.”
