We strongly believe in supporting local communities in the countries in which we operate. We currently support more than 100 community and conservation focused charities as well as many smaller programmes working both in the UK and in the countries we fly to.
Last year we invested £5m through direct and in-kind donations as reported by the London Benchmarking Group and Business in the Community's Percent Club.
We offer support in the form of funding, free flights, excess baggage, merchandise, cargo space and fundraising events. Our priorities for support are Education and Youth Development, Supporting our Colleagues, Environment, Sustainable Tourism and Heritage.
