Flying Start is British Airways' very successful charity partnership with Comic Relief UK for which we have raised over $12million since 2010. Building on our successful partnership in the UK, we launched Flying Start USA in Summer 2014, benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). We are delighted to be in partnership with such a fantastic organization - BGCA, supporting their mission "To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens".
Having smashed the original target of $100,000, British Airways colleagues across the US raised over $200,000 to support BGCA Clubs in the key cities to which we we fly. This year, we have a goal to raise $150,000!
