Each one of our customers expects and deserves to be provided with a service that meets their individual needs. We are constantly trying to broaden our understanding of those needs so that we can in-turn improve our customers’ experience when they travel with us.
One area we are focusing on is the journey process for our customers with disabilities. Working with customers and colleagues with disabilities, we are able to gain insights into what really matters to them, targeting improvements that will make the entire journey process more seamless and consistent.
We also benefit from a number of groups and networks within British Airways that help bring people together and provide a source of knowledge and understanding about the needs of those groups in a wider environment.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community
British Airways supports the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community, both within our organisation and amongst our customers. By recognising and embracing the differences in our customers and colleagues we help to promote an inclusive environment that treats everyone according to their individual needs.
British Airways has an Interfaith Network group that brings together people of different faiths and beliefs in the workplace. By recognising and embracing the differences in our colleagues we aim to create an inclusive environment that not only makes our colleagues feel valued, but also delivers benefits to our customers from different faiths.
Ethnically Diverse Network
British Airways’ Ethnically Diverse Network (EDEN) was set up in June 2010. Since then its membership levels have increased to over 200, reflecting the many different ethnicities represented amongst colleagues and customers.
