Firstly, Welcome to our official IFC thread and the home of British Airways Virtual Airline (BAVA).

BAVA, has a strong history going back to its formation in September 2015 as Speedbird VA when a month later we took on the flag of British Airways and became BA VA.

Although we are not officially affiliated with BA, we try our upmost to maintain the high real life standards that BA offers its staff and customers.

Through the community we have formed, pulling together a mutual love for British Airways and Infinite Flight, we really do our upmost to represent British Airways in the IF arena to the best of our ability.

I hope that following your visit to our thread and you feel that BAVA could be the right Virtual Airline for you, and that very soon you join us in our mission to ‘Fly to Serve’

Louis Donald
Executive President of British Airways VA.

Wow, looks great! Well done to you and the staff.


Yes Sir! Great to be back! 😁


To Fly, To serve!!!


Hoping this new BAVA is just as good as it’s predecessor but with much less drama. Best of luck Louie.


Thanks mate. I’m sure we will give Frontier a run for its money before you know it ;) See you in the skies! - Lou


Frontier is already light years ahead ;) (couldn’t resist) but honestly I’m glad you guys have straightened everything out. No need for all that side drama when you guys have a mission to keep progressing your awesome carrier. If you need any assistance my door is always open. Just ask!

Best of luck for the new BAVA 2.0 😉. I wish it would be as great as the old BAVA


Was a member of old BAVA, hope this one turns out better. Good luck

Its gonna be better.

No, no, and no. The whole lot of you are already half wrong. Yes we will still be better than before in the future, but the fact of the matter is that we are already better than before
