British Airways partners with tennis star Kyle Edmund

British Airways has announced a new partnership with tennis star Kyle Edmund, the company said.

The 23 year-old who was recently a semi-finalist at the Australian Open, has also been officially ranked as number one in Britain.

The new airline partnership, which will see the player flying with British Airways to many of the major global competitions this year, begins ahead of Edmund´s appearance at Wimbledon in June, when many Brits will be hoping to see him do the country proud.

Edmund will take his first flight with British Airways as a new ´British Airways Ambassador´ when he travels to Miami for the Miami Open.
