British Airways – the UK’s flagship carrier which operates 24 weekly flights from the UAE to London Heathrow – has slashed the cost of tickets on all Middle East routes.
For less than the price of a meal for two and a night’s stay for a couple at one of Dubai’s many five star hotels, customers can book a direct flight in World Traveller (economy) from Dubai, or Abu Dhabi, to London for Dhs 990 – one of the airline’s lowest ever fares on Middle East – Heathrow routes.
“The tickets represent a substantial saving for customers when comparing the prices with other airlines operating regionally. This sale will allow new customers to experience our renowned, industry-leading services at an appealingly low price,” said Paul Starrs, British Airways’ Commercial Manager, Middle East.
“Our relationship with our customers has always been a priority, and it is on the back of this relationship that we are offering these incredibly low fares. By booking tickets direct from the cheapest source at ba.com, customers can access our global network of 140 destinations across over 70 countries – we put the world at the Middle East’s doorstep. With these fantastic prices we are looking forward to welcoming new and existing customers onboard. ,” continued Starrs.
The fares - which represent the lowest priced tickets the airline has put on the market since for five years - are available on all tickets bought before February 23rd 2007.
Additionally customers will benefit from a 15% discount on British Airways Holidays’ hotels and car hire by booking and paying online.
British Airways Holidays also has over 2,000 London hotel beds available during 2007 - more than any other agent. The rooms, in the city centre, provide fantastic stop-over opportunities for travellers en-route to other destinations.
