BA unveils new flight deck photo app


British Airways' passengers who visit the flight deck will be given a photo as a souvenir from next month after one of its pilots developed a photo app.

All BA's 4,000 pilots will have the 'View From The Flight Deck' app loaded onto their iPads from the start of August to take the photos of customers visiting the cockpit before take-off or after landing.

The app automatically sends the photo, which includes a graphic showing facts from their flight, including the captain's name, route travelled and distance flown, as well as the aircraft type and registration.

Customers are encouraged to share their flight deck photos with the airline's social media channels using the hashtag: #BAUpClose.

Describing the new British Airways app, actress Denise Van Outen, said: "I love travelling with my family and want to remember all those precious moments with Betsy as she grows up.

"I think this a great new way to create another fun holiday memory, and it's a bit different to the photos you'd normally bring back from a trip.

"As souvenirs go, it beats a fridge magnet by a mile!"
