BAW-BA | British Airways
European Airline, in-flight duty free: This airline has routes within the European Union and also to non-EU member countries. Sometimes these non-EU flights are made in conjunction with associate airlines, known as code-sharing. Duty Free sales are not permitted within the EU or on domestic flights to the same country and airlines do not normally sell liquor or tobacco products on their European Union routes. But, they do sell a full range of other products such as perfumes, cosmetics, beauty and gifts at very competitive prices, but these goods are tax-paid. On flights operating from or to a non-EU Member State, the full dutyfree and tax-free allowances will be available (see below).
Many airlines allow you to pre-order online and arrange delivery for you. You will find the details at the onboard in-flight catalogue. On flights to or from other (non-EU) countries, special territories such as Gibraltar, The Canary or Channel Islands and intercontinental destinations, duty free and tax-free sales are permitted and a you can buy from a full selection of products.
Other products and services are also available, such as rail/coach transfers, global cellfone sim cards, event tickets and resort tickets. The airlines are increasing the range of products they sell and these options can also be reviewed online, before you fly. Prices can often be cheaper than the airport, especially for the traditional goods like spirits or tobaccos.
Airlines are now starting to use seat back screen technology to display the Brands they sell, you can buy onboard through a card payment machine and soon you will be able to see the in-flight shopping channels from home and order from your laptop or iPhone before you travel. These developments will help you to review the different options and add to your convenience, this could help to alleviate some of the difficulties flyers now experience with security or baggage rules and regulations.
