Anne-Marie Ryan, British Airways’ airport manager Jersey, said: “We are delighted to play such a leading role in the Jersey International Air Display. It is particularly important this year to look back at our long and successful association and the part we have played in the island’s history.”
In addition to the heritage livery in the air, British Airways’ ambassadors in various heritage uniforms will be on the ground to welcome visitors to the show which takes place on the 12th September at St. Aubin’s Bay.
Alongside the Airbus A319, 4 hours of flying displays will feature fast jets, vintage warbirds and classic aircraft.
