If British Airways can’t fly your customers to their final destination, we encourage use of our partner airlines through the oneworld alliance. This allows customers to benefit from a much wider route network, competitive fares and consistently high service levels.
American Airlines have grown to one of the largest airlines in the world since their formation in 1930 and pride themselves on offering a great range of fares and cabin types for all budgets.
American Airlines offer almost 6,700 flights each day to 350 destinations in partnership with their regional domestic partner American Eagle. This extensive network covers 50 countries, including direct flights from a number of popular European cities including London, Madrid, Helsinki and Paris.
American Airlines are also proud to be founding members of the oneworld alliance whose members and members-elect operate close to 14,250 flights daily to around 1,000 destinations across the globe.
