To mark its milestone, BA has redesigned its iconic Speedmarque logo to form the shape of 100. It has identified 100 British pioneers in the arts, sports, science and business to tell their stories throughout the year; it has partnered with a selection of British brands (like Marmite) to create limited-edition food, drink and gifts; it’s even launched its own BA sparkling wine!
And to commemorate by-gone days, BA has repainted some of its aircraft in its heritage liveries. There’s so much going on that this is the perfect time to fly BA. Come join in BA’s big birthday celebrations!
