British Airways (BA) is the flag carrier airline of the United Kingdom and its largest airline, based on fleet size, international flights and international destinations. EasyJet has left BA in the second place though in terms of passengers carrying.
British Airways, along with American Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Qantas and Canadian Airlines, was a founding member of Oneworld, the third airline alliance behind SkyTeam and Star Alliance.
In 2011, after the merger with Iberia and the cooperation with American Airlines on transatlantic routes, International Airlines Croup (IAG) was created, the world's third-largest airline, in terms of annual revenue and the second largest airline group in Europe.
Thanks to its partnerships and codeshare agreement, British Airways is one of the few airlines that fly to all six inhabited continents, with one of the largest and most modern fleets in the world.
