About British Airways


Often called BA, the airline is the flag carrier and the largest airline in the United Kingdom based on the size of its fleet. The airline started as a government-owned company before being privatised in 1987 and it is a founding member of the Oneworld airline alliance.

With 51 registered to its name, British Airways prides itself as the largest operator of the Boeing 747-400 confirming its status as a long time patroniser of Boeing.  With its slogan ‘to fly, to serve’, the airline offers a loyalty program called the EXECUTIVE CLUB. Members get lots of benefits like access to special lounges and dedicated ‘fast’ queues.
