In a big boost for Trekkies, various series from the Star Trek franchise will also be available onboard so you can binge away as you fly, reports the Mirror.

The airline celebrated the news with a Star Trek takeover at Heathrow Terminal 5, where workers dressed up in Star Trek costumes and were styled by movie make up artists.

The Starfleet cadre made its way through the airport to board U.S.S. Enterprise flight 1701 to Starbase, surprising unsuspecting customers and colleagues.

Calum Laming, British Airways’ chief customer officer, said: “We wanted to kick off this announcement with Paramount+ in true blockbuster-style by bringing some of their exclusive content to life, directly to our home at Heathrow Terminal 5.

"It was great to see so many Star Trek fans from across the business come together to help us celebrate this launch, with many colleagues excited to swap their wings for the Starfleet Insignia for a day.

“We know that customers are really going to enjoy the hours of content that this partnership with Paramount+ brings."

Anna Priest, chief marketing officer, UK, at Paramount, said: “This partnership is a fantastic platform for our continued growth in the UK, allowing us to introduce millions of customers a year to some of the best shows anywhere, available on Paramount+.

"We’re confident that British Airways customers will love what they see and be encouraged to continue exploring the mountain of entertainment on offer.”
