Centenary: British Airways 24/7: 'Access All Areas' Goes Live


The first episode of four-part series British Airways 24/7: Access All Areas airs on 5th September on Channel 5 (UK) at 2100 GMT, treating viewers to a unique insight into one of Britain’s most iconic brands.

Filmed over a nine-month period, with narration from award-winning actor James Nesbitt, the series goes behind-the-scenes, giving viewers a unique insight into how the airline is investing an unprecedented £6.5 billion for customers.

Over the next four weeks viewers will follow the airline’s people as they purchase new aircraft, open new routes, overhaul premium service, try out new meals, maintain aircraft and much more.

Filmed at locations including Osaka, New York and Toulouse, the first episode sees Gavin Shearer, British Airways’ Aircraft Delivery Manager, at Boeing’s headquarters in Seattle as he prepares to purchase the airline’s 30th Boeing 787 Dreamliner. British Airways is taking delivery of 73 new aircraft as part of its five-year investment plan.

The episode sees Gavin and his team working against the clock with the aircraft manufacturer to finalise the deal and fly the new aircraft to Heathrow in time to operate its first flight to Toronto.

Filming also captured the British Airways team as it prepared for a visit from Her Majesty The Queen at the airline’s headquarters to celebrate its hundredth year of flying.

As part of the visit, Her Majesty toured the airline’s museum and reminisced with volunteer Jim Davies, who joined the national carrier as a booking agent almost 36 years ago.

Meanwhile, viewers see British Airways’ food chiefs travel to Vienna to work with chefs from luxury hospitality company Do&Co on the airline’s multi-million pounds investment to develop dozens of new menus. See clips here.
