British Airways will celebrate with clients and coworkers both on the ground and at 35,000 feet this weekend as Britain and the Commonwealth look forward to commemorating the coronation of His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen Consort.

British Airways and VisitBritain have teamed together to create a mural on the London Heathrow flight path to give guests ‘a royal welcome’ as the United Kingdom welcomes tourists from across the world for a weekend of festivities. The artwork, which measures 47 by 64 metres, sits in Hounslow’s Thornbury Park. Just before the aeroplane touches down at the London hub, passengers landing at London Heathrow runway 27L will be able to view it on the right side of the aircraft. The artwork’s flowers were created by kids from Fun Fest Hounslow, a nearby holiday club. The drawings were based on the idea of “a natural world,” which is a love of the King and a central theme of the King’s Coronation symbol, and were sketched by the two young painters, sisters Jasmine and Raya Prajapati, who are 9 and 12 years old, respectively.
joyful flight with Charles and Camilla as the pilots

On Friday, May 5, a different BA059 flight from Heathrow to Cape Town, a member of the Commonwealth, will be crewed by coworkers with variations of the names Charles and Camilla. A group of 10 cabin crew members, including three Camillas, five Charles, a Kamila, and a Millie, will take care of passengers on this unusual trip. Three Charles-named pilots will pilot the 777-200 aircraft.

Customers are given royal treatment

Customers bearing the last names “King” and “Queen” flying from Gatwick and Heathrow will have the opportunity to start their vacation off in style with lounge access before to their flights on the actual day of the Coronation. Customers will be welcome to utilise the First Wing and First Lounge at Heathrow, as well as the First Lounge at Gatwick.

On May 6, British Airways will commemorate the historic event by serving Joe&Seph’s Eton Mess customised popcorn made especially for the airline in all cabins departing from Heathrow and Gatwick. The airline and its caterers created desserts with a Coronation theme that would be served on aircraft departing from Heathrow and Gatwick. A custom lemon and white chocolate Coronation tart, an afternoon tea with three royal desserts, and a lemon and white chocolate mousse crowned with a chocolate crown, all of which were inspired by King Charles’ well-known fondness for lemon cream, are among the exceptional sweets. Customers flying with British Airways on WiFi-enabled aircraft will be able to take advantage of these regal goodies while viewing a live feed of the Coronation, which is free to access on passengers’ personal electronic devices.

Chief Corporate Affairs Officer for British Airways Lisa Tremble stated, “We are thrilled to be able to commemorate this historic milestone in history. As the national airline of the United Kingdom, we take great pride in welcoming guests to our country and sharing in the festivities with our passengers on board by providing a variety of Coronation-themed delights. It will undoubtedly be a weekend we won’t forget since in addition to crewing an aircraft full of colleagues named Charles and Camilla, we are also celebrating with our wonderful coworkers throughout our airports and offices.

The Prince’s Trust and The Big Help Out

British Airways is also pleased to support The Big Help Out, a volunteer programme that aims to increase awareness and provide individuals throughout the UK the opportunity to volunteer. The airline will urge employees to volunteer for some of the fantastic organisations that The Big Help Out supports.

Last month, British Airways hosted a three-week “Get into Aviation Programme” as part of its relationship with The Prince’s Trust. The programme was designed to help young people develop their employability skills and acquire firsthand experience in the profession. The airline’s initiative was centred on inspiring underprivileged 18 to 30 year olds to think about a future in aviation. Many young adults signed up for the project, which featured confidence-boosting lessons and work experience days in their desired field. After the training was through, 11 young people were given the opportunity to enrol in one of British Airways’ apprenticeship programmes.
