Supported by Visit Britain, British Airways is working in partnership with Leeds Bradford Airport to give families a great holiday break by allowing kids under 12 to fly for free on domestic flights*.
Helping to cut holiday costs even further, Heathrow Express and Novotel have also come on board to offer family discounts.
The initiative, which started on July 14, looks set to boost UK tourism by encouraging families to fly more cheaply between London and Yorkshire for their holidays.
Sara Dunham, British Airways’ head of marketing, retail and direct 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, on a British Airways flight.
We are delighted to be joining forces with other great travel brands to offer families free child flights and discounted holiday deals.”
The partnership with UK airports means free flights for kids, when travelling with an adult*, can be booked for travel from July 14, 2016, until November 1, 2016.
Kids can also stay for free at Novotel hotels when adults book a stay and kids can also travel for free on the high-speed link between Heathrow and London’s Paddington station – the Heathrow Express. That means there are plenty of fun things for Yorkshire families to do once they get to London, including:
Natural History Museum
Tower of London.
John Parkin, Leeds Bradford Airport’s Chief Executive, said: ”We are pleased to be working with British Airways to introduce this fantastic Kids Go Free offer. Families will be able to take advantage of flying to London during the August school holiday period or for a weekend break. We look forward to welcoming parents and their children flying from Leeds Bradford Airport as they choose an easier and cheaper way to reach to the capital.”
