British Airways (BA) Cheapest Flight Deals Last modified: Jan 19, 2017 0:23 -05:00

Not only is British Airways the flag carrier of the UK, it forms the International Airlines Group with Aer Lingus from Ireland and Iberia and Vueling from Spain. With the slogan “To Fly, To Serve”, it is clear that British Airways holds to the highest standards in customer service.


In 1972, the United Kingdom government created a British Airways board to oversee four of the UK’s major airlines. Two years later, in 1974, the four merged into one airline, creating British Airways. British Airways was a state company until it became privatized in 1987.

The airline is based in Waterside, near its major hub at London Heathrow Airport. Also, British Airways is a founding member of the third largest airline alliance, oneworld Alliance.
