For the first time, British Airways is offering customers flying on discount economy tickets the opportunity to earn Executive Club tier points to help them ascend the blue, silver and gold ranks of the airline’s loyalty scheme.

The permanent change to the Executive Club follows a successful trial after members said such an improvement would be top of their wish list.

Ian Romanis, British Airways’ head of loyalty, said: “We’ve been listening to our members and rolling out a host of new benefits for the British Airways Executive Club. This is the latest initiative and our customers tell us they’re delighted we’ve made this change. It brings real value to members, allowing them to either move more easily up the tiers, or simply maintain their status, regardless of the type of ticket they’re on”.

The changes mean that Silver and Gold Executive Club members will find it simpler to maintain their status and the benefits associated with them, including access to 150 lounges worldwide, including British Airways’ £60 million Galleries lounge complex at Terminal 5.

Customers in Euro Traveller (shorthaul economy) will receive five tier points while those in World Traveller (longhaul economy) will receive 15 tier points with every booking.

Other recent enhancements to the BA Executive Club scheme include the ability for Gold Card holders to book any route, cabin or date for double the cost of the standard redemption rate, provided they book 30 days or more in advance, and the capicity for blue members can make it to Silver, and Silvers can maintain their status by taking 50 flights.

No points are needed to become a blue member but 600 points or 50 flights with the airline are needed to become a silver member and then 1500 points are needed to be a gold member.

British Airways Celebrates 90 Years Leading The Travel Industry

British Airways celebrates 90 years of leading the travel industry, since Transport & Travel Ltd (a precursor to British Airways) launched the world’s first commercial flight which departed from London to Paris on August 25 1919.

British Airways Celebrates 90 Years Leading The Travel Industry

Since then, the airline has carried more than 1.2 billion customers on its extensive route network, and become recognised as one of the world’s elite carriers.

Paying tribute to the airline, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said: “British Airways has never lost the pioneering spirit and vision that saw it take to the skies with the world’s first daily international flight from London to Paris on this day in 1919.

“Ninety years on, the world’s most iconic airline is still proudly flying the flag and remains a great British brand. Many congratulations to all its staff – past and present, on this special day.”

British Airways chairman Martin Broughton said: “Over the past nine decades, British Airways has played its part in many historic episodes. We provided the first air links to far-flung capitals in the days of empire, flew Winston Churchill across the Atlantic during wartime, brought Queen Elizabeth back to Britain after the passing of George VI, repeatedly led the way with aircraft innovation and have often proudly transported home our sports teams from success overseas.

“We have a rich history supporting Britain and will carry this forward to our centenary and beyond.”

90 years on from that first Paris flight, British Airways now offers up to nine daily flights to the French capital of fashion and romance, all ideal for a Paris holiday British Airways offers great deals on a wide range of Paris hotels, coupled with affordable fares on flights.

On August 25, 1919 George Stevenson-Reece became the first fare-paying passenger on a scheduled international flight – from Hounslow Heath to Le Bourget Airport in Paris. He flew in a single Rolls-Royce engined Airco DeHavilland 4A, piloted by Captain E.H. Lawford. Flying time was more than three times what it is today at 2 hours 30 minutes. The fare was 42 guineas return (the equivalent of £1,706 today).

Emirates’ First Luxury Conservation-Based Resort Outside Dubai, Is Reaching Completion

The construction of Emirates’ Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa in the heart of Australia’s Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the airline’s first luxury conservation-based resort outside Dubai, is reaching completion.

“We are well on schedule for our October 1st soft opening,” said Joost Heymeijer, general manager of Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa. “We have reached that very satisfying point in the development when the hard construction work is behind us and the focus shifts onto detail, quality finishing and preparation for operations.”

With the resort’s electrical and water systems completed, the emphasis is now on each suite’s fit-out and interior design. Half of the one-bedroom suites are already fully furnished, and the remainder will be completed by the end of August. Work is well under way on the Main Homestead, which will be the social centre of the resort. The main pool area and gymnasium, as well as the resort’s luxury Timeless Spa, will be completed by the end of July.

Built on the same principles as Emirates’ acclaimed Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa in Dubai, the resort is fully integrated into its environment. It incorporates as many ecologically sustainable design principles as possible, including rainwater collection, full recycling of all domestic water, heat exchange technology to reduce electricity consumption and the use of solar panels for all hot water systems. The resort has more than 100 solar-energy units, significantly reducing its energy consumption and resources footprint.

Additional measures aimed at reducing the resort’s carbon footprint include efficient room orientation to reduce heating and cooling requirements, modern insulation envelopes and wide traditional verandas, which increase airflow around and through the buildings. The resort even makes use of traditional windmills instead of electrical pumps.

From an architectural perspective, the resort was built with respect to the Australian identity and local rural history. The timeless design, inspired by original Federation style, is reminiscent of traditional rural Australian homesteads. However, it incorporates modern practices to include some of the world’s best environmentally protective building materials and technologies.

From an environment and conservation perspective, landscaping efforts in and around the resort have also been in place from the start of the resort development. A two-year programme for the removal of all invasive and damaging noxious plants from the property was undertaken. Grass has been seeded and 25,000 trees are being planted, using seeds from native species collected onsite and grown at a local nursery in Lithgow.

This ambitious tree-planting programme has been made possible by the support of local volunteers and an international student volunteer organisation, with more than 60 students volunteering time in June and July to assist with the resort’s conservation efforts. Planting is well on target, with more than 20,000 trees planted since the beginning of June.

Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa is built on the same conservation philosophy as the Al Maha Dubai resort and as such is the only resort in recent history to receive permission to be built within a World Heritage Area. Following some of the most rigorous legislation and environmental controls in the world, this project is of extraordinary significance, not just within Australia but on a global level as well.

The resort adheres to World Heritage Committee standards and has exceeded the minimum requirements of construction controls imposed by both State and Federal Agencies – positioning Emirates as the only foreign investor carrier with such level of commitment to Australia.

Emirates Has Scored A Double As Two Of Its A380 Super Jumbos Jetted Off From Dubai To The Opposite Ends Of The Globe, Marking The Aviation World’s First A380 Commercial Services To Bangkok And Toronto

The launch of the Emirates A380 daily flights to Bangkok and thrice weekly to Toronto – signals a new era of luxury air travel to Thailand and Canada, and represents another milestone in the airline’s A380 schedule.

The new Emirates A380 to Bangkok took off f r o m Emirates’ new home, Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport, carrying 488 passengers, and the landed to a festive welcome by the Thai government at Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Meanwhile the Emirates A380 to Toronto departed Dubai with 458 passengers and was the first commercial A380 jet to touch down on Canadian soil.

Senior management f r o m Emirates flew on the two inaugural services. On arrival in Bangkok and Toronto, the A380 was unveiled to local media, travel trade and key government officials.

The A380 is the world’s only twin-deck airliner, with 35 per cent more seats than its closest rival. It is the most environmentally-advanced commercial aircraft in the sky today, offering better fuel economy than most hybrid passenger cars. The A380 burns up to 20 per cent less fuel per seat than today’s next largest aircraft, and is quieter, generating less than half the noise of other aircraft on takeoff.

Tim Clark, President, Emirates Airline said: “Emirates is delighted to celebrate its inaugural A380 services to Thailand and Canada. The aircraft with its large capacity and excellent operating economies is a pillar of growth, both for the airline and the destination. In Thailand, the introduction of the super jumbo will support the local government’s multi-million dollar promotional drive to boost tourism arrivals f r o m the high-yield Middle East region. At the same time the higher-capacity A380 will help address the strong demand for passenger and cargo services on the Dubai-Toronto route which is currently restricted by the bi-lateral agreement to three flights per week.”

Hailing the arrival of Emirates’ A380 as a positive development for Thailand’s tourism industry, Mr. Chaisak Angkasuwan, Deputy Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transport, Thailand said: “We are delighted Emirates selected Bangkok as the first Far East gateway for its revolutionary A380 product. Our current marketing and trade campaigns focus on promoting Thailand as an ideal holiday destination in the Middle East. We welcome the opportunity to partner with Emirates to grow the tourism potential f r o m this region.”

Lloyd McCoomb, President and CEO of the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA) said: “The GTAA is honoured to be part of this historic day. We are pleased that this route has proven so successful for Emirates and we are very excited to welcome the A380 to Toronto Pearson. This is exactly what this airport was rebuilt for – to allow for new and larger aircraft that will be the future of the airline business.”

Mr. Clark added: “With air travel due to triple in the next 18 years and constraints on traffic rights and airport slots to continue, larger capacity aircraft such as the A380 are key to Emirates’ plans to meet increasing passenger demand. We have ordered 58 A380s and each one of these has been carefully planned for our present and future requirements. Our next A380 destination will be Seoul on 1st December, and will represent Emirates’ first A380 service to North East Asia.”
