BA Executive Club Gold members with more than 5,000 tier points can now nominate a family member or friend for a Gold partner card and two more for Silver partner cards.
This new benefit replaces the single Silver partner card that BA previously awarded Gold Executive Club members upon reaching 4,500 points.
Executive Club members receive a Gold card after reaching 1,500 tier points in year. For those who continue to fly - and earn tier points - BA offers further benefits. One of these had previously been the ability to give a single Silver partner card.
Gold members who have already nominated someone to receive a Gold partner card in their current membership year can now nominate an additional two people to receive Silver tier status.
All three partner cards can then be nominated again at the beginning of the next membership year.
The other benefits of Gold membership remain the same.
As BA states on its website: "At 2,500 tier points, and again at 3,500 tier points, we'll award you with a Gold Upgrade For Two voucher that you and a companion can use towards an upgrade to the next cabin on a flight of your choice, subject to availability...
"At 5,000 tier points, you will receive the Concorde Room Card, your key to the most luxurious and well-appointed lounges at London Heathrow Terminal 5 and New York JFK Terminal 7.
"At 5,000 tier Points, you will also receive two Executive Club Silver Partner Cards and one Gold Partner Card so that you can share your benefits with those that matter most to you."
In order to nominate family/friends for partner cards, Gold members need to login at ba.com and select the "Executive Club partner card" option from the "Manage my account" page.
