Serving the pensions interests of current and retired British Airways staff.

The association is for everyone who has pension rights with British Airways – that means those still working as well as existing pensioners and those who have a deferred pension from the company.

ABAP is all about protecting your pension and giving you an objective view on how the schemes are doing.


The short answer is your pension is valuable. Most current employees can speak to the airline through their Trade Unions, but once we leave BA we have no collective voice to ask questions about the schemes’ health or the implications of proposed changes – ABAP will give you that voice.

Remember – ABAP provides you with pertinent information on a regular basis as the best way to protect your pension, to keep informed and have your concerns paid attention to. Please join us and tell all your British Airways friends about ABAP. It’s their future as well as yours and everyone benefits from the energy and ideas of an increasingly younger membership.

ABAP’s income is derived from annual subscriptions and donations from members.

The annual subscription which runs from 1st July to 30th June:

  • just £6 for deferred pensioners and current employees
  • free for pensioners with a gross pension of £6000 or less
  • for pensions over £6000, banded rates starting at £8 with a
    maximum of £60
