Dreamflight: British Airways Gives Children Magical Experience


More than 190 children set off on a holiday of a lifetime yesterday, courtesy of British Airways and UK-based charity Dreamflight. It’s the 34th year that the two organisations have come together to run the incredible trip to Orlando, Florida.


Dreamflight supports young children across the UK aged between 8 and 14, all of whom either have a serious illness or disability. Each year the charity works with British Airways to take the children on a truly memorable holiday. Due to the pandemic, Dreamflight hasn’t been able to take off for the last two years, making this year’s flight extra special.


Many of the 192 children that flew to Florida have never experienced a holiday or even a trip abroad before due to the complexities involved with their illnesses. To ensure the children are well looked after, they are accompanied 24-hours a day by volunteer doctors, nurses and physiotherapists, supported by British Airways’ cabin crew and pilots.


To send the children off in style, British Airways and Dreamflight hosted a special party in one of the airline’s Heathrow hangars. The children also enjoyed entertainment courtesy of an RAF Air Cadets Marching Band and tens of police puppies.


In Orlando, the children will have eight magical days with an array of activities in the sunshine state including visits to Universal Studios and other Florida attractions.


The Dreamflight charity was co-founded by former British Airways’ cabin crew member, Patricia Pearce MBE. Since the first flight in 1987, more than 6200 children have flown on Dreamflight, with British Airways colleagues donating their time to support the departure from Heathrow each year.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
