Why fly BA...?

DISCOVER MORE OF THE WORLD MORE OFTEN

Our network. Selecting our holiday destinations starts with a simple question: "Where would you like to go?" We take the time to listen to each of the over 40 million passengers who fly with us each year to ensure that we can offer you more destinations more often than just about anyone else. So upgrade to British Airways and take your pick of more than 150 destinations across the world, from the smallest Caribbean paradise islands through to the bustling Big Apple. Just pack your bags and leave the rest up to us.

LET YOUR CHOICE OF HOLIDAY BE THE ONLY THING YOU WORRY ABOUT

Destination guides. Your journey begins before you reach the airport, and doesn't end until you're safely back at home. So we've ensured that you can plan every detail of your holiday with us, from selecting the perfect Shanghai hotel to choosing just the right rental to get you around Milan's cobblestoned streets. And because the most memorable sights are rarely signposted, a wealth of hints, tips and inside information on your holiday destination is awaiting your arrival when you log on to ba.com. What's more, if your family is set to join your holiday adventure at a later stage, we offer a special service for children travelling alone called Skyflyer Solo to make sure they have a safe and fun flight in the company of a certain Mr Paddington Bear™.

YOUR HOLIDAY BEGINS BEFORE YOU’RE OUT THE FRONT DOOR

It's easy. When you need to get away from it all, the last thing you want to do is stand in a queue. Our online booking system lets you avoid the airport madness and get yourself, your kids, your mom, dad, grandma and anyone else who might be sharing your holiday checked in with just a few simple clicks. Our ba.com website lets you check in up to nine people, print your boarding pass and reserve your seat from our selection of handy seat maps without having to leave the comfort of your favourite chair. So save time, check-in online and we'll make sure the only thing on your mind when you depart is how to spend your time when you arrive.

GET AWAY FROM IT ALL BEFORE YOU’RE EVEN ON BOARD

Spend your time well. The creation of the £4.3 billion Terminal 5 building has allowed us to redefine air travel before you've even left the ground. And with top brands such as Harrods, Tiffany & Co, Mulberry, Prada, Kurt Geiger and Reiss creating unique Terminal 5 stores, you may find yourself boarding with just a touch more luggage than you left home with. So save your strength for the adventure ahead by becoming a Silver or Gold Executive Club member, or by travelling in Business Class, and put your feet up in one of over 70 dedicated British Airways lounges or 170 partner lounges across the world.

GET A TASTE OF YOUR HOLIDAY BEFORE YOU GET THERE

Onboard meals. Welcome aboard! Our onboard chef for this flight will be serving a meal selected from a range of more than 300 dishes by our BA Taste Team, a group of the very best names in the culinary world working together to search out the planet's finest food and wine. What's more, should you have a particular dietary requirement, just let us know beforehand and we'll dish up whatever you need. We think that deserves a complimentary drink, so "cheers"!

THE GREATEST SHOWS ON EARTH ARE AT 30 000 FEET

Personal entertainment. A 26cm (10.4 inch) personal flat-screen, noise-cancelling headphones and an ice cream - welcome to the movies. Sit back and enjoy the latest films, TV programmes, games, audio books, music and radio when you want to, in the comfort of your private space.Our HighLife Entertainment's Audio Visual On Demand (AVOD)* system let's you keep the remote for as long as you want, so flick between channels to your heart's content as you choose from over 200 of the very best entertainment options.

WE’RE ALWAYS READY TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND

Our service style. If you need a little help getting onboard, or want to reserve a place for your faithful, four-legged Guide Dog friend, we've done all we can to ensure that more than 400 000 people with disabilities arrive safely at their holiday destinations every year.Our staff may have been trained to assist the elderly, to make sure that a child travelling alone is never left alone, and to do all they can to accommodate those with different religious beliefs - but the smiles are all their own.

GO THE EXTRA MILES

And when the time comes for your next vacation adventure, redeem your miles on any of the up to 600 destinations on offer via our oneworld alliance network.

CHANGE THE WAY YOU FLY FOREVER BY VISITING OUR NEW HOME

Terminal 5. Terminal 5, our new home at London Heathrow, may be the largest airline lounge complex in the world, but that's not what we're most proud of. Nor is it the fact that the wall-to-ceiling windows provide views that stretch as far as Windsor Castle, or that up to 2 500 people at a time can enjoy possibly the most luxurious terminal on the planet.The most rewarding aspect of Terminal 5 is how it has allowed us to lead the way in reducing the environmental impact of air travel. Because we care about both those who travel with us, and those who pass below.

HAVE A DRINK AND A SNACK. THEY’RE ON US

Free food and drinks. As any real host, we're brought up to always look after our guests, and make sure that you have all you need. We will always offer you either a hot meal or a light snack on board, no matter in which cabin and what time of day you're flying. And off course drinks are on us as well.

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET

All-inclusive fares. Whenever you see a British Airways flight price in our advertisements or quoted on this website you can rest assured that is all you will pay. Our prices always includes taxes, fees and charges.
