British Airways offers free flights for kids on select Heathrow routes

British AirwaysBritish Airways has just released news of a summer promotion which gives free travel for kids. For each fare paying adult travelling on six routes to and from London Heathrow Airport, two children can travel for free.

The deal applies to the airline’s Euro Traveller tickets booked before 1 October 2017. The applicable travel period is from 1 June to 31 October. The terms and conditions of the offer state that the two accompanying children have to be under 12 years old.

The promotion is valid on routes from Heathrow to Billund in Denmark as well as UK airports at Belfast, Inverness, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Leeds-Bradford. The Danish city is home to the flagship Lego Billund Theme Park and is likely to be a popular choice with youngsters during the summer.

Adam Daniels is BA’s head commercial officer and he explained free flights for kids would make the pennies count on family holidays. He added that families would be able to travel farther and see more of Britain and its abundant attractions as well as head over to Europe.

When parents book their tickets, BA’s reservations system will also seat adults and children together without adding extra charges on. Travel analysts say Heathrow to Leeds-Bradford round-trip tickets will work out to around £88 for an adult with two children.

Billund is even more of a bargain as return flights from Heathrow are currently averaging £73. The analysts note that the routes covered under the promotion are ones which generally fly with well under their maximum passenger capacities during summer.
