One Year to Go!

27 July 2011

As the official airline partner of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, British Airways is emblazoning ‘One Year to Go’ onto the belly of an Airbus A318 aircraft, to celebrate the countdown to the start of the Olympic Games on 27 July 2011. Flight ‘BA001’ from London City Airport will display the celebratory message, which can be seen as it flies in to JFK.

Footage will also be made available at

Garry Copeland, British Airways director of engineering, said: “This is the first time in the history of British Airways that we have branded the underbelly of an aircraft with a celebratory message. We hope it will bring a real sense of excitement to the Olympic Park and people living around the area.

Customers will not miss the celebrations either – British Airways Captains will highlight that there’s only One Year to Go to customers on board all BA flights.
