According to a statement the carrier declares that “Millions of Britons have juggled holiday plans to be in the UK for the Games.”

The carrier launched the campaign on Facebook and premiered a new TV advert  during England’s European Championship football match against Ukraine.

The advert features a BA aircraft taxiing by road through London to the soundtrack of London Calling by The Clash. The tagline “Don’t Fly. Support Team GB and ParalympicsGB” appears as the aircraft reaches the Olympic Park.
