New 'First' Magazine

Last October 2015 British Airways launched ‘First’, a new magazine exclusively for First passengers.

First is a collectable quarterly journal founded on a fresh philosophy of luxury based on hand-crafted design, original thinking and personal reflections on travel.

The new title is designed to bring to life BA’s ‘Dedicated to Exclusivity’ First proposition by creating a thoughtful, compelling reading experience designed with the discerning First passenger in mind.

Delivered in a new size and with improved paper stock, each issue will anchor in a single concept or theme. The pages will explore this from a historical, philosophical, scientific, artistic and cultural perspective, featuring First-rate contributors, BA experts and specially commissioned artwork.

First launched to coincide with the new 787-9 First cabins, and will be available exclusively inflight and in the Concorde lounge.
