All customers receive a generous free baggage allowance, complimentary onboard refreshments, free on-line seat selection 24 hours before departure, On Business customers also get access to Fast Track security and the newly refurbished Yorkshire Premier Lounge at Leeds Bradford Airport.

Companies can earn On Business Points on all qualifying flights with triple points for the first six flights and they can be redeemed for flight upgrades, reward flights and hotel accommodation.

Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s Marketing Director, said: “This is great news for the Yorkshire business community.  British Airways’ attractive loyalty programme, On Business, is designed to help reduce travel costs. For every qualifying flight you or your colleagues take, your company will earn 'On Business Points' which may then be redeemed for upgrades, flights or hotel accommodation. It’s a cost effective and easy way to ensure your business gains maximum benefit from travelling to London and worldwide.”
