New 'First' Magazine

This October British Airways is launching ‘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, launching with The Time Issue this November. The pages will explore the theme from a historical, philosophical, scientific, artistic and cultural perspective, featuring First-rate contributors, BA experts and specially commissioned artwork.

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

Discover First

A better seat yes, but much more besides.

Explore our First cabin and enter a world where personal service and attention to detail define your journey, from check-in through to your destination.
