BA`s Sky Marshals Statement

As a responsible airline, we have concerns about the presence and use of firearms on board our aircraft, however we are working closely with the government to make sure these plans do not jeopardise onboard safety and to ensure that the correct procedures are in place should deployment be necessary.

We believe that robust and excellent ground security is at the heart of achieving security in the air. We work extremely closely with the airport authorities in implementing a range of robust measures on the ground.
