British airways celebrates 80 years of flying in fashion and art.

British Airways celebrated 80 years of flying to Hong Kong in style with a VIP gala and a unique heritage fashion photoshoot – featuring supermodel David Gandy wearing a vintage 1920s sheepskin flying jacket.

Gala guests were also treated to a display of artefacts and memorabilia ahead of British Airways’ HK80 pop-up exhibition at the University of Hong Kong, which features models of the aircraft that have flown the route over the years, a cinema screening of a short film about the anniversary and a display showcasing the evolution of the iconic brand.

For this milestone, British Airways has partnered with the Department of Sociology at Hong Kong University, Hong Kong Museum of History, and the British Chinese Heritage Centre in the UK to launch a series of exhibitions in Hong Kong focusing on the heritage of the brand and the aviation history in Hong Kong.

The HK80 exhibition will be open for the public to visit for free from 6 May until 30 June. It is located in the MC³@702 Creative Space, Level 7 of the Jockey Club Tower, The University of Hong Kong.
