British Airways customers will soon be able to use one card to pay for telephone and fax calls, email and voice mail access or data transfer from almost any telephone in the world - and earn Air Miles towards free flights at the same time.
The service is one of a range of communications tools available to British Airways’ frequent flyers as a result of a new three-year strategic relationship between the airline and BT, announced today (April 30).
The global cashless calling service will enable users to make calls from millions of phones worldwide and is available to members of British Airways Executive Club.
The BT relationship replaces the airline’s existing arrangement with AT&T from June and will offer all the facilities of BT’s current Chargecard plus additional services tailored to the needs of British Airways’ international business travellers.
Executive Club members won’t have to bother with memorising a new account number or adding another card to their collection. The Executive Club membership number will be used as the BT Chargecard account number.
British Airways Executive Club members will be contacted with details of how to activate their cards.
