Let us create some#BAMAGIC

Do you want to surprise somebody special?

Can we create some #BAMAGIC for somebody you know?

We witness some amazing moments in airports. Whether it’s travelling home to see loved ones or taking children for their very first overseas holiday, travel can be special.

We are also surrounded by heroes, medics, firefighters, police, mums, children, neighbours and friends who have faced adversity and done amazing things.

Do you know somebody who deserves to be surprised by British Airways?

We’ve met and surprised some special people over the last year, and now we are looking for more people to surprise and help.

See Finlay's, Marjorie's, Lisa and Hayley's and many more stories below.
