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.
