Popular Brit-band One Direction will be hosting the ultimate high-flying dinner date on a British Airways jet over London on 21 July, to raise money for Comic Relief. The charter flight will be given the original flight number BA1D and British Airways cabin crew will be on hand to make sure the event runs smoothly.
The five band members - Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik - will take to the skies to help raise funds for Comic Relief.
They will be joined on the exclusive sky-high date by eight lucky fans who won tickets in a competition.
At least half of the proceeds from the text-to-win competition will go to Flying Start
, British Airways’ global charity partnership with Comic Relief.
Each of the eight winners will be able to take two guests on the hour-long flight, enjoy lunch on board, chat with the band and have photographs taken with them.
The flight plan is a closely guarded secret and winners will be met in central London and taken to an undisclosed airport to board the aircraft.
Mary Barry, British Airways
community investment manager,described the event as “a money-can’t-buy opportunity and a dream come true for eight very lucky fans”. Barry added: “We are absolutely thrilled to team up with One Direction for this fantastic competition and we’re so grateful to them for giving us this chance to raise lots of money for Flying Start.
Money raised from the competition will be spent by Comic Relief to help children living tough lives both in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries.
