Bringing happiness to those who need it most
Every year, dozens of volunteers from across British Airways come together to help send almost 200 seriously ill children on the holiday of a lifetime, working with Dreamflight, a UK-based charity founded by a former British Airways cabin crew member.
Community engagement and fundraising
In 2022, IAG raised over 6.5 million euros for charitable causes across the Group, including campaigns related to the floods in Pakistan and the war in Ukraine. Of this 43% came from customer contributions, 35% from Company donations, 16% from employee contributions and 6% from in-kind donations. Colleagues working for IAG or one of our Group businesses are able to support communities across the world, and close to home.
Aer Lingus and Paralympics Ireland
In October 2022, Aer Lingus was announced as the Official Airline of Paralympics Ireland and will support Team Ireland as it prepares for and competes in the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games. Following the support of the team for its Tokyo 2020 campaign, Aer Lingus will continue to support Irish para-athletes to World Games in the lead up to qualification for Paris 2024.
