MIAMI— British Airways and London City Airport (LCY) have teamed up to create the first airport airside tour on Google Street View. Google users may now take a virtual tour on one of the airline’s Airbus A318, specially configured in all Business Class to operate long-haul routes out of LCY.

Alison Fitzgerald, chief information officer of London City Airport, said: “London City Airport is
leading the way in using new technology to enhance the customer experience. That experience starts at home when you book or check-in, and the Street View trusted tour is an exciting addition. It will help passengers to plan their journey and for those who have never visited LCY, they can see what they’ve been missing out on.”

The new mapping also means customers traveling through London City airport can now also use it to navigate their way around the airport, allowing them to explore and ‘visit’ check-in, duty-free and even check-out the best places to eat and catch up on last-minute work before their flight.

Customers on the prestigious flight – which carries Concorde’s former flight numbers – can enjoy a ‘private jet’ experience, with three cabin crew to serve a specially prepared in-flight menu, fine wines and snacks as they wing their way in privacy across the Atlantic.

Stephen Humphreys, British Airways’ head of global sales, said: “From the comfort of their own home, customers can now take their own private virtual tour of one of our specially configured  Airbus A318s and peek inside British Airways’ private lounge, so they can see for themselves just how exclusive the Club World London City service is.
