Buying and paying for tickets
You may buy tickets through our website at www.britishairwaysi360.com, by phone on 0333 772 0360 or at the ticket office at British Airways i360.
Tickets ordered by phone are subject to a booking fee of £2 per transaction. This booking fee does not apply to visitors with disabilities or for groups of 6 or more paying customers.
You may buy gift vouchers through our website at www.britishairwaysi360.com or in the shop at British Airways i360.
Please note that the ticket office is only open during British Airways i360’s public opening hours which you can check here. It is located at our site on the ‘upper level’ on Kings Road opposite Regency Square.
If you book through our website, our acceptance of your booking will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. If we are unable to accept your booking, we will inform you of this within 48 hours and will not charge you for the tickets or gift vouchers. This might be because we are fully booked, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the item you wished to book.
We will assign a booking reference number to your booking and tell you what it is when we accept your booking. It will help us if you can tell us the booking reference number whenever you contact us about your booking.
All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates. The price will be that indicated on the booking pages when you placed your booking on our website or as displayed at the booking office. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price advised to you is correct.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some tickets and/or gift vouchers we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your booking so that, where the correct price at your booking date is less than our stated price at your booking date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price at your booking date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your booking. If we accept and process your booking where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any tickets and/or gift vouchers provided to you.
We reserve the right to change prices at any time but this will not affect the price of tickets or gift vouchers for which you have already paid.
You must make payment in full at the time of buying a ticket or gift voucher either by credit card or debit card. We will not charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch the ticket or gift voucher to you. We do not accept cheques. Please do not send cash through the post.
You may buy tickets and gift vouchers either individually, or you can hire the glass viewing pod exclusively for a maximum of 175 people.
If you buy tickets through our website, you may choose one of two “delivery” methods:
- By email with an e-ticket attached. If you choose this option, you must either print out the e-ticket, or display it on your mobile phone or tablet (in which case, it is your responsibility to ensure that your phone or tablet battery is sufficiently charged so that your e-ticket can be displayed). A member of our staff will check your e-ticket in either case. We take no responsibility should you not receive an e-ticket, for example, due to junk or spam filtering.
- By collecting your tickets from our ticket office or the shop located at British Airways i360. This is perfect if you do not have a printer or smart phone. You will need to bring the following with you on the day of your visit: the credit card which you used to make the booking (or, if the card holder is not attending, a signed letter of authorisation from the card holder); your booking reference number; and photo ID.
It is your responsibility to check your booking and the accuracy of the details on your email confirmation or tickets (as appropriate) as mistakes cannot always be rectified. When you receive your email confirmation or tickets, please keep them in a safe place as we cannot be held responsible for any tickets or gift vouchers which are lost or stolen.
You do not have the right to change your mind in respect of booking for tickets or gift vouchers once you have submitted it, though you can review it before submission. We will only refund your payment once we have accepted your booking in limited circumstances: for example, we may do so if we have to close British Airways i360 due to severe adverse weather conditions.
You can arrange a flight during the booking procedure, where you will be allocated a flight time.
One “BA i360 Flight” ticket entitles one person to one flight lasting approximately 25 minutes (including boarding and disembarkation time).
One “Afternoon Tea” ticket entitles one person to one flight lasting approximately 25 minutes (including boarding and disembarkation time) followed immediately by afternoon tea, which is generally served at West Beach Bar & Kitchen at British Airways i360, or else the West Beach Café & Bar or one of the hospitality rooms at British Airways i360, depending on availability.
These timings may be changed for operational or other reasons at our discretion.
A ticket or gift voucher can only be used once. Once a ticket has been scanned at the entrance, it cannot be used again.
Gift voucher bookings
Gift vouchers bought online and in our shop can be redeemed for a booking either online at www.britishairwaysi360.com/redeem or in our shop. We recommend that you book a flight as early as possible as entry is strictly subject to availability.
Changes to your flight time
We may need to change a flight time once it has been issued to you but we will try to notify you as soon as we become aware that this is necessary. If we have to significantly amend your flight time, your remedies (where time permits) are to accept the amended flight time or to arrange another agreeable flight time with us or to cancel the ticket. If you choose cancellation, we will refund you those monies you paid for the tickets, but we will not pay any other compensation to you.
You can change a flight time by contacting us at [email protected]om at least 72 hours before the flight time which you want to change.
If you miss your allocated flight time, the following options are available:
- Visit our ticket office to secure an alternative flight time (£10 rebooking fee applies).
- Notify us and be put on a waiting list for the next available flight. There may be a significant wait and we cannot guarantee entry.

To be clear, we do not offer the same type of discount on bookings made for gift vouchers.

If you receive a Young Person’s discount, you may be asked to bring proof that you are between the ages of 16 and 24 to British Airways i360 in the form of a Passport, Driving License, Student ID or college photo ID card, and show this at the entry gate or ticket office.

Your credit card details must be given as security, and we may charge you for £250 if the wheelchair is damaged or not returned.

Dogs are permitted in our beachside retail shop and West Beach Bar & Kitchen’s outdoor seating area.

From time to time, we may sell tickets for other events, attractions, meals or other things which are not provided by us but by another operator (Third Party Events). In this situation, we will make you aware of the terms and conditions of the relevant operator. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage which arises out of or in connection with or as a consequence of any Third Party Event including, but not being limited to, loss of profit, damage to or loss of property or items belonging to any person attending a Third Party Event and any personal injury to such a person (but only so far as such injury is not caused by our negligence).
Closure of British Airways i360 and adverse weather
We reserve the right, with or without prior notice, to shut all or part of British Airways i360 in adverse weather, for maintenance or a private event.
If possible, we will try to provide advance notice on our website and try to email any visitors affected by the closure. If this happens, we will offer you an alternative flight time, restaurant reservation time or cancel the ticket. If we cancel your ticket, we will refund you those monies you paid for the tickets, but we will not pay any other compensation to you (including no travel expenses or any other out of pocket expenses).
We reserve the right, whether due to adverse weather or maintenance, for the glass viewing pod to travel up to a lower height than usual. If we operate at a lower height then you have no right for a refund of those monies paid for the tickets, nor any other compensation.
The quality of the views experienced on board the glass viewing pod will vary according to the weather conditions, which is entirely outside of our control. In the unusual event that there is zero visibility from the glass viewing pod at all heights, then you will be entitled to receive a complimentary flight ticket for another date. If, however, there is a sea mist which results in zero visibility at ground level but the glass viewing pod rises above the mist, then no such complimentary flight ticket will be issued. You are not entitled to a complimentary flight ticket or refund if the views aren’t as clear on the day as your visit, as on other days of the year.
Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking our contract with you or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
If an e-ticket which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation.
Our right to change these terms
We may change these terms from time to time by posting changes online. We will try to bring changes to your attention but you are responsible for reviewing the terms each time you book so you are clear as to what terms apply.
Every time you book tickets and/or gift vouchers from us, the terms in force at the time of your booking will apply to the contract between you and us. We may revise these terms as they apply to your booking from time to time to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements or for operational reasons.
If we have to revise these terms as they apply to your booking, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the contract if you are not happy with the changes. If you opt to cancel, we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, but we will not pay you any other compensation.
How we may use your personal information
We will use the personal information you provide to us:
- to supply the tickets or gift vouchers to you;
- to process your payment for the products;
- if you agreed to this during the booking process, to inform you about news, special offers and events taking place at British Airways i360 but you may stop receiving these at any time by contacting us; and
- if you have agreed to this during the booking process, to inform you about special offers from our sponsors and commercial partners.
We will only give your personal information to third parties (other than, where you have agreed, our sponsors and commercial partners) where the law either requires or allows us to do so, or where you have given us your permission to do so.
We will only send you emails if you specifically give us your consent to do so.
If you join our mailing list or buy tickets or gift vouchers from us, we will ask you to provide us with certain information about yourself which we will handle in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
Other important terms
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
The contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. The European Commission provides for an online dispute resolution platform, which you can access here: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. If you would like to bring a matter to our attention, please contact us at [email protected]
Covid–19, often referred to as coronavirus, is an infectious disease that can result in serious and potentially fatal illness. There is a risk of the transmission of Covid–19 in any environment where people come together. This risk increases in enclosed spaces and with increased numbers of people. The World Health Organisation has advised that the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions are more vulnerable.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have introduced specific safety measures at British Airways i360 in an effort to safeguard the health, safety and well-being of persons visiting and working at our attraction. A full list of safety measures is available here.
The safety measures we have put in place in response to the Covid-19 pandemic are there to safeguard the safety and well-being of all guests visiting, and the staff working at, British Airways i360.
You and your party must: (a) comply with all the safety measures we have put in place; (b) follow all government guidance aimed at preventing the transmission of the virus (details of which can be accessed here); and (c) follow all directions provided by our staff members and/or set out in the signage within British Airways i360.
Neither you nor any member of your party must enter British Airways i360 if you believe that you or they may have been infected with Covid-19.
Should you or a member of your party not comply with the above we may require you and/or the relevant member(s) of your party leave British Airways i360.
Acceptance of risk
The safety measures that we have introduced are intended to minimise the risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus but this risk cannot be completely eradicated. When you and your party enter British Airways i360, you and they accept all risks associated with Covid-19. To be clear, however, we do not exclude any liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence.
In addition to the above, please refer to paragraph 22 (Events Outside Our Control) which provides information regarding cancellation of your booking due to events outside our control, including Covid-19.
If you have any questions or concerns relating to our approach to Covid-19, please contact us. You can call us on 0333 772 0360 during normal office hours or write to us at [email protected]
Stay alert to stay safe, and have a good flight!

2.6 When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these terms, this includes emails.
3. PROVISIONAL BOOKINGS
We may agree to take a provisional booking from you, and you may cancel that provisional booking without us imposing a charge. While we hold your provisional booking, we will not allocate the facilities that you have provisionally booked to other customers unless you agree to release the provisional booking. Please note, however, we only hold provisional bookings for a period of one week (from the date you made the provisional booking) after which we will release your provisional booking without further reference to you.
4. CONFIRMING YOUR BOOKING
4.1 To confirm a booking, you will need to complete, sign and return the booking confirmation to us and pay the deposit (as set out in the invoice). Your booking is only considered to be accepted and confirmed when we have received the duly completed and signed booking confirmation and the deposit from you and we have notified you in writing that we have accepted your booking by countersigning the booking confirmation at which point the contract between you and us will be formed.
4.2 The booking confirmation will clearly state:
4.2.1 the parts of British Airways i360, meals, and other services and facilities you have booked;
4.2.2 the hire period (both the date and timings);
4.2.3 a summary of your event;
4.2.4 a clear statement of any other arrangements that have been agreed between you and us; and
4.2.5 any services which are to be provided through another person or organisation;
4.2.6 your best estimate of the number of guests;
4.2.7 the minimum number of guests for which we will cater for;
4.2.8 the maximum number of permitted guests;
4.2.9 the deposit payable by you;
4.2.10 the staging payments payable by you and the date by which it is to be received by us; and
4.2.11 our best estimate of the total value of your booking – we refer to this as the Estimated Fee in these terms.
4.3 Please ensure all the information on the booking form is correct before signing and returning the booking form to us.
4.4 If we are unable to accept your booking, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for your booking. This might be, for example, because British Airways i360 (or the relevant part of it) is already booked, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of your booking, because we are unable to meet a date you have specified, or because we consider your proposed event may damage our reputation or image (or the reputation or image of British Airways).
4.5 We will assign a booking number to your booking and tell you what it is when we accept your booking. It will help us if you can tell us the booking number whenever you contact us about your booking.
4.6 When you return your signed booking confirmation, you are offering to pay all charges for the hire of British Airways i360, food, beverage, and services and other facilities as set out in the booking confirmation. If you wish to change your booking please refer to paragraph 7.

5.5 You and we agree that neither of us shall have any claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation based on any statement in the contract.
6. PRICE AND PAYMENT

You, however, acknowledge that the final actual sum due from you (the Final Fee) will depend on a number of factors including but not limited to the number of your guests we cater for, the quantity and type of food and beverages consumed, any additional services you request, and any damage to British Airways i360.
6.2 If the rate of VAT changes between the date on which you made your booking and the date of your event, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay.
6.3 We require that you make up to four advance payments with regards to your booking (and event). These are as follows:

6.6 On the day (or the first day of) your event, you must provide us with a valid credit or debit Visa, MasterCard or American Express card which you shall, where the Final Fee is higher than the Estimated Fee, use to pay for the difference due to us. If, however, the Estimated Fee is greater than the Final Fee, we will repay the difference due to you, subject to any deductions we make in respect of damage to our property, within 30 days of the date (or the last date of) your event.
6.7 To be clear, you must make all payments in pounds sterling. We reserve the right to pass on any bank charges resulting from the exchange of foreign currency payments made by you.
6.8 If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 5% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time.
