Popular Kids Fly Free Offer is Back!

Families look set to keep it closer to home and take more breaks this summer thanks to a partnership between British Airways and some of the UK's biggest airports including Belfast City where BA operates six flights daily to Heathrow.

The flag carrier's popular 'Kids Fly Free' offer is back, a scheme which had a particularly high uptake with Northern Ireland families.

The airline is offering free flights for children under 12 who travel with a full paying adult on journeys between Belfast and Heathrow, Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Inverness and the home of LEGO; Billund in Denmark.

The partnership means up to two children can fly for free when travelling with an adult even during the school holidays. It can be used on Euro Traveller tickets booked from May 10 to October 1 for travel from June 1 until October 31, 2017. Find out more and book online at ba.com/kids-fly-free.

Adam Daniels, British Airways’ chief commercial officer, said: “Saving every penny counts when it comes to family holidays so flying kids for free will make it cheaper to fly away for fun and see more of the UK and Europe this summer.

“With so many fantastic tourist attractions and activities for kids across Britain, the offer also looks set to give UK tourism a boost by encouraging families to visit London, the North, Scotland and Northern Ireland for their holidays.”

Helping to cut holiday costs even further, there are also plenty of family-friendly offers to save customers even more money on the way, with kids-eat-free deals at participating restaurants at Heathrow Terminal 5, complimentary travel for youngsters on the Heathrow Express and kids stay free offers at selected Hilton Hotels.
