British Airways ID Requirements for UK domestic travel

Did you know? from 1 September 2023, changes have been made to ID Requirements and it will be necessary for your clients to carry valid photographic identification when embarking on UK domestic flights. This identification will be requested at specific points during their journey and failure to provide this identification could result in being unable to proceed with their travel plans.

While a passport is not mandatory for domestic travel within the UK, it is important to carry a form of photographic ID when flying with British Airways. Acceptable forms of ID include a valid Passport, driving license (either provisional or full), EU national identity card, armed force’s identity card, and police warrant card or badge.

For children under the age of 16, identification is not mandatory when traveling on domestic flights. However, the accompanying adult must possess photographic identification and be able to verify their own identity. For unaccompanied children aged 14 and 15, identification will be required when traveling on domestic flights.
