No one flies to more destinations from the UK than British Airways. If you are interested in booking a group with us, we can make the booking and travel experience easier for you.
As we are a full service airline, your group will have a free baggage allowance, in addition to complimentary refreshments during your flight. Group seating, special or medical meals and dedicated group check-in can also be requested for your group.
If you are booking for 20 people or less in our economy cabin and your group starts its journey and is being paid for in the UK, you can still book separate bookings on ba.com up to 20 people. However, if you prefer to be guaranteed one fare type and group benefits please contact Group Sales.
British Airways has a dedicated and experienced Group sales team specially trained to manage all of your group travel requirements, whether business or leisure.
You can make your group booking for as few as 10 people travelling together in our Economy cabin, seven or more passengers in our Premium Economy and Business cabins, and four or more passengers in our First cabin.
If you have less than 10 people in your group, but you would still like to book everyone together, you can book your flights and other facilities directly on ba.com.
We understand that organising a holiday for a large group of people can be stressful, so let our experienced consultants take some of the stress away from you.
You won't need to tell us the final names until two weeks before you fly, so you can relax knowing that you have secured your flights for the best price without having to advise us of all the small details. We will also try to make sure that your group sits together on the aircraft, ensuring that your holiday gets off to a great start.
Conference and conventions are important tools for motivating your workforce and to gather together people who are experts in their field.
Many groups choose us to organise their travel arrangements. Our consultants can help you make arrangements for all your delegates to come together, even if they are travelling from different parts of the world. We have excellent fares from all parts of the UK. Our team can also help with tickets for the group organisers to visit the venue prior to the event.
You won't need to provide the final names until two weeks before travel, helping you manage the stress of those last-minute changes.
More and more people are choosing to make the most important day of their life part of the most exciting holiday of their life, and often friends and family come along for support. This can make arranging a wedding even more stressful when you are organising the travel arrangements for your wedding guests.

All year round, sporting groups are travelling around the world, both for professional or amateur sports. It is important to get to your destination on time so that all the preparation for your competition is worthwhile.
We can help with your sporting group's travel arrangements, and if you have any specialist kit or equipment that you need for your trip, we can advise on the best way to get that to your destination. You can also be secure in the knowledge that once your flights are held we don't need final names until two weeks before travel, and if you have any last minute replacements you can change a name for just £30.
Contact us for further advice so that your sporting group has the best chance of success.
It can be hard work escorting budding scientists, would be architects or potential Picassos to amazing places, especially if you have younger children in the group. Contact our Group consultants for a preferential school group fare on our unrivalled network of destinations.
We can request group check-in facilities so that your whole party can be together right from the start of your trip (with minimum 8 days notice) and we can also arrange seating so everyone sits together on board.

Knowing that a community somewhere needs your help is hard to cope with, without trying to work out the logistics of who can do various roles and what they will need to be doing. Don't let your travel arrangements be something else to add to your list of worries. Our Groups consultants have vast experience at assisting many charity and aid groups in flying to one of our many destinations.
You can book up to 50 weeks before your planned date and we can help your charity spread the cost by paying just the initial deposit and then pay nothing more until eight weeks before the trip. You can then wait until just two weeks before travel to give us the final list of your volunteers' names.
