About British Airways

British Airways plc (LSE:BAY) is the largest airline and national carrier in the United Kingdom and one of the largest in Europe. Its main transfer hubs are Heathrow and Gatwick. British Airways holds a Type A license, meaning it is authorized to carry passengers, cargo and mail on planes with 20 or more passenger seats[3]. British Airways is a member of the Oneworld airline alliance.

On April 8, 2010, British Airways announced a merger with Iberia into the International Airlines Group.

BA was created in 1974 after a British Airways Board was established by the British government to manage the two nationalised airline corporations, British Overseas Airways Corporation and British European Airways, and two regional airlines, Cambrian Airways and Northeast Airlines. On 31 March 1974, all four companies were merged to form British Airways. However, it marked 2019 as its centenary based on predecessor companies. After almost 13 years as a state company, BA was privatised in February 1987 as part of a wider privatisation plan by the Conservative government. The carrier expanded with the acquisition of British Caledonian in 1987, Dan-Air in 1992, and British Midland International in 2012. Its pre-eminence highlights the reach of the country's influence as many of its destinations in several regions were historically part of the British Empire. Source: Wikipedia
