British Airways launches trade promotion to celebrate New San Jose route

Published on : Monday, April 11, 2016

brit airwaysAhead of British Airways’ launch of flights on May 4 to San Jose in California, one of the world’s tech capitals, the airline has launched a trade promotion.

 

 

To be in with a chance to win a pair of return tickets to the city, agents simply need to book one or more customers to fly with British Airways between London and San Jose, CA between April 7 and May 31, for travel in any cabin until December 31.

 

 

To enter they can simply enter the code ‘787OFR’ in to the GDS when booking flights between Heathrow and San Jose.

 

 

Stephen Humphreys, British Airways’ head of global sales, said: “We’re really excited about our new route from Heathrow to San Jose, California. It’s a great opportunity to bring together two dynamic cities, renowned for their tech industries and start-ups. Equally, it’s an ideal gateway to California and the scenic Pacific Coast Highway, so it’s well worth agents offering it to clients as another option in addition to San Francisco, Los Angeles or San Diego.”

 

 

The route will be served by the airline’s new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. As the aircraft is 20ft longer that the 787-8, it is able to offer four cabins: World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premium economy), Club World (business class) and for the first time on the airline’s Dreamliner fleet, a First cabin.

 

 

Specially developed for the 787-9, the new First cabin is very private with just eight suits. Each seat has four additional storage areas, including an ottoman, a personal suiter, a locker for small personal effects and a device stowage space complete with charging capability. In-flight entertainment is shown on a 23inch fixed screen and a smart ‘jog-dial’, manages the seat’s recline, headrest and lumbar inflate and a ‘global’ lighting control to set both ambient and reading lighting.
