British Airways is proud to be the official airline partner of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The story started for us in 2008 when we flew Team GB and ParalympicsGB to the Beijing 2008 Games. This was followed by our heroic winter Olympians travelling with us to the Vancouver 2010 Games.
We are continuing our support for British talent in a number of ways in the run up to the London 2012 Games, including flying our elite athletes to training sessions and competitions around the World.
Great Britons was launched to support home grown talent in celebration of London 2012. It is a flight bursary, open to anyone who has a talent or passion in a field that could be enhanced by having the opportunity to travel. The programme is also offering a chance for the best of British creative talent to win a truly career-defining opportunity.
We are also proud to be supporting our athletes on the World Class Performance Programme with UK Sport. We are providing their training staff, management and families with flights to help them on their way to London 2012.
Our commitment to the London 2012 Games goes far beyond transport. We want to help create a legacy for the entire nation by supporting the regeneration of London, investing in communities and supporting British talent.
