Business and leisure travellers in over 75 countries can now pay for their British Airways flights, with PayPal at ba.com.

PayPal offers a fast and secure way to pay online as well as protecting consumers' sensitive information. PayPal securely stores its customers' financial details so they don't need to re-enter them when they use PayPal to buy British Airways flights.

John Mornement, Head of Selling and Distribution at British Airways said "We are pleased to offer more choice to our online customers by introducing PayPal on BA.com."

Cameron McLean, General Manager of Merchant Services at PayPal UK, said, "British Airways is one of the best loved brands in Britain, and we're delighted that its customers can now pay for their flights, with PayPal."

PayPal is the UK's preferred online payment brand* and has over 26 million accounts in the UK, which represents two in every three British internet shoppers.** PayPal is a payment option on over 165,000 websites across Europe.
