What is the British Airways Executive Club Blue line telephone number?
In this article I want to summarise the key British Airways contact telephone numbers if you are a Blue (base level) member of British Airways Executive Club.
The British Airways Executive Club Blue member telephone number is 0800 597 7580.
If you are outside the UK, you need to call 0208 707 4488.
For other British Airways Executive Club membership tiers:
The British Airways Executive Club Gold member telephone number is 0800 123 111
The British Airways Executive Club Silver member telephone number is 0800 408 0 009
The British Airways Executive Club Bronze member telephone number is 0800 597 7580
If you are one of the last people in the UK to still own a fax machine, you can fax BAEC on 01787 881405.
How do I call British Airways Executive Club if I am outside the UK?
The other telephone numbers shown will only work if you are in the UK. If you are travelling, the international number for British Airways Executive Club for non-Gold members is 020 7949 3086.
When is the British Airways call centre open?
The British Airways call centre is open from 8am to 10pm, seven days per week.
Outside these hours, most queries can be dealt with by an overseas call centre. Oddly, you might find that your out-of-hours call is routed back to the UK to be dealt with by an overnight team who do not take calls directly.
The most useful one for UK residents in the US call centre. The number is 1-800-247-9297 (1-800-AIRWAYS) and it is open from 7am – 11pm daily, Eastern Standard Time.
The full list of British Airways overseas contact numbers can be found on this page of ba.com.

How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (October 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also good bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These are available to sole traders as well as limited companies.
