Originality has been part of our DNA since day one.

We launched the world’s first international scheduled air service in 1919. Then we broke the record for the fastest transatlantic flight with Concorde. And remember when the first fully lie-flat seats were introduced? Yes, that was us, too.

It was our Engineering teams that brought these game-changing ideas to life.

This is your chance to join one of the most diverse and innovative departments at British Airways, at a time when we’re re-imagining the way we fly the skies.
