We also share your personal information with third parties who deliver services either to you or to us, such as companies that provide airport assistance or marketing agencies.
If you are a member of the British Airways Executive Club as set out in the Terms and Conditions of membership available, your personal information is provided to both British Airways Plc and Avios Group (AGL) Limited who operate British Airways Executive Club and issue and redeem Avios.
