In its centenary year, British Airways is hosting a range of activities and events. As well as celebrating its 100-year heritage, the airline is also hosting BA 2119 – a programme, which will lead the debate on the future of flying and explore the future of sustainable aviation fuels, the aviation careers of the future and the customer experience of the future.
The airline will be working with expert partners to identify BA’s 100 Great Britons; the people up and down the country who are currently shaping modern Britain and, of course, the year would not be complete without some special flying and moments for customers.
The offers come as British Airways is investing £6.5 billion to improve its customer experience over the next five years, including new aircraft, new cabins, new catering, new lounges, WiFi, new routes and a new business class seat – Club Suite.
