British Airways has added tracks from the London
Symphony Orchestra to its in-flight entertainment system.
A selection of music from 10 London
Symphony Orchestra albums are now available on board, spanning the
classical, opera and choral genres.
The orchestra performs tracks from
world-renowned composers including Mozart, Verdi, Haydn, and
Debussy among others.
Becky Lees, Head of LSO Live, the London Symphony
Orchestra’s record label, said, “The London Symphony
Orchestra has a mission to bring its music to as many people as
possible. We’re delighted to share this selection of our live
recordings via British Airways’ in-flight entertainment system.
International touring is an important part of the Orchestra’s life
so this is an excellent way to give British Airways customers the
chance to explore our music making as they also travel the globe.”
Customers who fly with British Airways on
long-haul flights have free access to over 1,000 hours of films,
TV shows and audio programmes via their personal seatback screen.
Martinoli, British Airways' Director of Brand and Customer
Experience, said, “It’s a real pleasure to be adding music from
the London Symphony Orchestra to our entertainment system, which
gives customers even more choice on what they want to listen to or
watch on board. They’re an example of brilliant British talent
with a fascinating history, which we know our customers will enjoy
regardless of whether they’ve listened to much orchestral music
