Those people who are planning to take flights with British Airways will soon get into the board in order of how much they paid for their tickets. This applies to those in first-class boarding ahead of those flying economy.

The airline also said that who has paid the most or least for their seats have the number of cheaper choices accordingly. British Airways is starting this service from Sunday, December 12, which is part of its new zoned boarding procedure.

Other airlines like American Airlines, Iberia and Qatar are already using this process. They will assign the passengers zones Instead of calling out passengers by the cabin or the row in which they’re traveling.

This new process will start in both long haul and shorter flights. But, the boarding procedure will be different in between these.

Passengers Will board In The Following Groups For Long Haul Flights:

·        Group one – Gold/Emerald/First

·        Group two – Silver/Sapphire/Club

·        Group three – Bronze/Ruby/Premium Economy

·        Groups four and five are economy

Passengers Will board In The Following Groups For Short Haul Flights:

·        Group one – Gold/Emerald/Club Europe

·        Group two – Silver/Sapphire

·        Group three – Bronze/Ruby

·        Group four – Economy

·        Group five – Economy customers with hand baggage only

There are only 2 long-haul flight destinations from East Midlands Airport and these are Orlando in the USA and Cancun in Mexico. These flights only run in the summer season which begins in May and ends in October. Recently, the 3rd long haul route from East Midlands Airport to Newark in the USA has been added.

A BA spokesman told the Burton Mail that the aim is to “improve and simplify” the boarding procedure.

A spokesman said: “We are always looking at ways to improve and simplify the airport experience for our customers. We were the first UK airline who introduces automated biometric technology with the launch of self-service boarding gates. And we also installed self-service bag drop points at Heathrow and Gatwick for our customers with quicker check-in experience.

He added, “From the next month we are introducing new boarding procedures to make it simpler for customers. This procedure has been used by the number of airlines all around the world for a number of years.”
