British Airways exists today because of you. This is why we want to make every trip you take with us a great experience. Our entire team is here to provide exceptional service – from our signature warm welcome to ensuring that you arrive at your destination safely.

BA Better World

Flying is magic – connecting us to our world and bringing people, places and communities closer together.

We recognise that it has an environmental cost, which is why we’re taking urgent action to tackle the effects it has on our planet. This is our most important journey yet – one that leads to a better, more sustainable future.

We call it BA Better World.
