British Airways on your mobile phone

Friday 16, July 2010


British Airways on your mobile phone is now with you wherever you are. You can check your flight status in the taxi to the airport, or choose seats for tomorrow's flight without leaving the beach.



By visiting on your Internet-enabled phone you can use mobile-optimised services to access the British Airways timetable in real time, as well as select seats and check in individuals, groups and families for departure or return flights.


The mobile service:

  • is available to all customers with a mobile-enabled phone
  • requires no downloads or software
  • supports the same languages as
  • shows the latest arrivals and departure information by flight number, airport or route
  • can be used for checking in bookings with more than one person, allowing families to choose seats together


Executive Club members can log in to the mobile site to:

  • View tier
  • View points and miles balance
  • Check in for upcoming flights


Once you have checked in, you can choose to:

  • pick up your boarding card from the airport (from a kiosk or check-in desk)
  • send your boarding card to a fax machine
  • email the boarding card for printing later
  • logon to online check-in from a computer with a printer when you're able to use one
