Officially the Community's 'Best Virtual Airline' for Two Years.

We'd like to thank everyone who has shown their support for us in the 2019 Infinite Flight Community Awards.

British Airways Virtual Airline was once again voted by community members as the 'Best Virtual Airline' of 2019, making this the second consecutive year our Virtual Airline has won this award, and highlighting the great community and familial spirit of British Airways Virtual Airline, through its fantastic members and excellence in operations.

In addition to this amazing award, the Virtual Airline was also recognised for its commitment to providing the best for its pilots as it came joint first in the 'Best Virtual Airline Website' category of the awards, alongside one of our main Virtual Airline competitors. We continue to work hard on improving our website and IT infrastructure in order to provide resources which our pilots can not only use, but can excel with, fully realising their potential in the Infinite Flight skies.

Last but most certainly not least, the award that we're possibly most proud of this year was in recognition of one of our staff members, and their unwavering commitment and excellence in their role. Here at British Airways Virtual Airline, we truly believe that our staff members are at the beating heart of the entirety of our operations, and that they make BAVA the friendly, welcoming and supportive community that it's known for today. We also believe that our staff team is, collectively, made up of some of the best members of the Infinite Flight Community. This was recognised in these awards, as our former Deputy President, Adam Williams, was nominated and subsequently voted as the 'Best Virtual Airline Staff Member' of 2019, taking into account Adam's approachable and friendly attitude, excellence in his work, and unwavering commitment to the Virtual Airline over the past year. We'd like to thank Adam for his awe inspiring work this past year, as we reflect on these awards, and if you'd like to see how he reacted to his award, click here.

Now, the really important bit. We couldn't have achieved any of this, or quite frankly anything at all, without the support of our members, staff members, members of the community, and our general supporters. So thank you for your continued support and contributions to the community. We'd like to extend our congratulations and thanks to all those receiving awards this year, in recognition of their contributions to our wonderful Infinite Flight Community, and to those who weren't formally recognised, as we still appreciate that so many do so much to contribute to this wonderful community.

We hope to continue to excel onwards into 2020, and in this new decade of opportunity for British Airways Virtual Airline. We wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year.

A message from our President - Darragh O'Donoghue.

A warm welcome to the British Airways Virtual Airline website.

Hello, future BAVA pilots! I'm delighted that you've taken the time to have a look at our multi-award winning VA. It is my pleasure to be serving as the 6th President. When I joined BAVA as a pilot back in January of 2017, I never thought that I'd be here over 3 years later. It stands as a testament to just how engaging BAVA is. I've met people in this VA that I'm proud to call friends and have indeed met up with in person. Since we were founded back in 2016, we have seen exponential growth and progress take place in our VA. We now pride ourselves for providing a professional and enjoyable experience that no other VA can provide. Over 3 years of innovative and clever leadership has led us to become one of the biggest, most successful and respected VAs on the IFC; I've always said that I think we have one of the best team of staff. So, prospective BAVA pilots: I encourage you to join our large and thriving community. An experience unlike anything you've ever experienced before awaits you in British Airways Virtual Airline!

Please browse and enjoy our site to see all the things we offer our professional virtual pilots and we hope to hear from you soon!

Come and join us in the skies. To Fly, To Serve.
