British Airways has just released their latest safety video with some serious A-list appeal

Created in partnership with International Comic Relief, the six minute video features the likes of Rowan Atkinson (Mr Bean), Sir Ian McKellen, Thandie Newton, Gordon Ramsay and, of course, British comedian Asim Chaudhry, known by his stand-up name Chabuddy G, who plays the role of “director”.

Speaking on the video entitled “British Airways safety video - director's cut”, the airline says that it’s “been designed to help customers absorb important safety messages, while boosting fund-raising for ‘Flying Start’, the global charity partnership between British Airways and Comic Relief.”

“It’s extremely important to us that customers engage with our safety video, and involving some of the nation’s most well-known personalities has given us the chance to create something fun that we hope people will watch from start to finish – and remember,” British Airways’ chairman and CEO, Alex Cruz said of the video.
