This contest will give once in a lifetime opportunity to spend a day with British Airways and live the dream of every student of experiencing London through their eyes be it travelling through the streets of London or living the global heritage which the UK is known world over. Bringing the charm of the city of London and the infinite educational opportunities which UK promises closer to the Indian students, British Airways aims to connect with the ever growing Indian student community.
British Airways has launched a Twitter and Facebook contest inviting the students in India to participate and win a fabulous trip to experience London.

Participants can share their dream locations to visit in London, experience British culture and options for shopping and sightseeing places in the UK.
Two lucky participants will win one return World Traveller (economy) tickets each for themselves from one of the 5 cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai to London. The contest is now live and ends on 18 August 2016 at 11:59 pm IST.
Moran Birger, British Airways’ regional commercial manager, South Asia said, “British Airways is delighted to announce this once-in-a-lifetime experience for students who aspire to study abroad. We have been flying to India for over 90 years and continue our long standing tradition to support dreams of students from India to create an outstanding and stress-free on-board experience.

Big Bang Theory actor Kunal Nayyar recently in an interview with British Airways spoke for the first time about leaving India at the age of 18 when he landed the part of the much loved Rajesh Koothrappali character in the popular US sit-com. Kunal flew British Airways as he left India with BA helping him trace his journey from India to US as he entered a new phase of life.
British Airways also recently announced its generous annual offer for students travelling from India to the UK, Europe, US and Canada which allows an extra piece of luggage weighing up to 23kg per passenger, in addition to the current allowance of one checked bag. The student offer by British Airways is valid for outbound travel from now until 30 September 2016.

Students can enjoy stress free onward connections from London to other destinations in the UK, Europe, U.S. and Canada.
