British Airways (BA) Limited was a British airline created in 2012 by British Airways to operate the executive service between London City Airport and New York under the brand name Club World London City. The Club World London City services returned to being operated directly by British Airways PLC in 2015 although no changes were made to the aircraft, crews or product offered.
The airline operates a twice daily service on weekdays between London City Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport with one daily service operating at weekends. Due to the short runway at London City Airport limiting fuel uptake, westbound flights from London to New York make a stop at Shannon Airport for refueling, where passengers onboard flight BA1 clear US Customs and Immigration, arriving in New York as domestic passengers. BA3 passengers clear immigration and customs in JFK.
