Sure. There are several ways for you to earn Avios for British Airways. First of all, if haven’t done it yet, sign up for an Executive Club program. This way you’ll earn Avios from your flights that will collect in your account and that you can subsequently redeem on British Airways flights.
Secondly, you can apply for a British Airways credit card. This is an option if you fly frequently, but if it’s just a few times a year, then don’t bother. The regular card doesn’t have good rewards options and a premium card has too high an annual fee to apply for.
You can earn miles easier if you apply for one of the travel credit cards. Those are applicable to any airline of your choice. If you fly British Airways, you can redeem earned miles for such flights. If you fly another airline, it’s also ok. One good example is the Discover It Miles card. It gives you 1.5 miles on all purchases and matches your miles at the end of the first year, giving you twice as many miles. Miles are redeemable for travel purchases or just as cashback, so you can easily turn them into British Airways tickets. In addition, Discover has no annual fee or foreign transaction fee, so you can easily use it abroad and not overpay.
