Supporting young people to reach their potential.

Flying Start - our global charity partnership with Comic Relief

Since June 2010, British Airways’ Flying Start programme has worked in partnership with Comic Relief to help give disadvantaged young people in the communities we fly to the chance to have a brighter future. So far, thanks to the incredible efforts of our colleagues and customers, we have raised over £25 million and counting.
Between now and the end of 2020, we will be investing £2.25 million of the funds we raise in specific projects across the UK, as well as in India, Ghana and South Africa, which focus on early childhood development. Funds raised above this are split 50:50 between supporting Comic Relief projects in the UK and overseas.
