Latest app features

Pay for drinks and M&S on board snacks

You can now use the app to pay with Avios for drinks and selections from the M&S on board menu on economy (Euro Traveller) and UK domestic services to and from London Heathrow and London Gatwick.

If you are an Executive Club Member, and wish to pay for your snacks or drinks using Avios, please download the British Airways app, or ensure you have the latest version before you fly.


Quick check-in

If you're travelling on your own, have already reserved your seat and are travelling with hand baggage only, you can now check in with only three taps. Available for one-way or return journeys when using iPhone and Android devices.


Boarding passes for return and connecting flights

If you have booked a return flight or you're connecting from one British Airways flight to another, you can check in and download the boarding passes for all your flights as soon as you have checked in for your first flight.

This new feature also works if you need to get boarding passes for up to eight people travelling together on the same booking. You can use it for all destinations where mobile boarding passes are available.

Available for Android and coming soon for iPhone.

Multiple boarding passes for families and groups

Download up to eight boarding passes to one mobile device, reducing the risk of losing your paper boarding passes when travelling as a family or group. However, you will be unable to use them if you have an infant in your booking.

Available on iPhone and Android devices.
