Together we are creating the building blocks for a flying start in life.

Flying Start is the global charity partnership between British Airways and Comic Relief. British Airways wants to help give children in the communities which we fly to the chance to have a brighter future.

Comic Relief helps to fund hundreds of amazing organisations who are working on the ground to support the most vulnerable people and communities in society including many of those hardest hit by the coronavirus crisis.  This includes vulnerable children and young people, people who are homeless or who have been forced to flee their homes, women and families at risk of domestic abuse and those struggling with existing or new mental health problems.

Since 2010, British Airways customers and colleagues have raised over £25 million – an incredible amount that we are immensely proud of.  These vital donations have supported more than 824,000 people in the UK and some of the world’s poorest communities.

Although it might look and feel a bit different this year that doesn’t mean we can’t have lots of fun and continue to make a difference in our communities, whilst keeping ourselves, customers, friends and family safe.
