BA now accept PayPal for flight payments

No primary category set

British Airways are now accepting PayPal for all business and leisure flights on their website at This was announced back in October 2010 and PayPal are now live for all British Airways flights.

Sadly however, although you can buy flights to over 75 countries with PayPal, you might currently be better off using more traditional forms of payment. Currently upgrades, excess baggage, changes to bookings, seating and insurance can’t be paid for via PayPal. However you should be able to pay for these extras with PayPal soon as they are planned additions for 2011.

If you’re just after a basic flight then you can go ahead and pay with PayPal today.

  1. This, like ebay’s venture with the big boys (Tesco/argos etc), means clearly that there is now a wide split between the fees charged by Paypal (and ebay).

    Most small online users are 2.5-3.5% for paypal, bet the likes of the above are nearer 0.50-1.00%.

  2. I can remember when ebay would end your listings without warning for simply mentioning paypal

  3. If BA go on strike will Paypal freeze their account and stop them drawing money out? Paypal want to charge £20 a month for a mechant account for my website plus 20p per payment plus about 3% commission. Nochex is cheaper so I wont be using Paypal on my website, not unless they can match Nochex. They wont do this so there not on my website. I’ll still have to use a standard Paypal account for my eBay shop. My sales on eBay don’t justify a merchant paypal account. I don’t see why the mollopolies commission doesn’t make eBay open up their checkout to non eBay companies. Didn’t this happen in Austrialia? (I can’t beleive I spelt Austrialia right)(I generally spell it wrong)
