British Airways Goes For Gold With Special Commonwealth Games Discount

July 11, 2014 Airfare Deals No Comments Email Email

To celebrate this year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow British Airways is offering a special discount on all European travel.

The British flag carrier is giving passengers 10% off all bookings made during the games (July 23 – August 3, 2014), with travel permitted on any date.

The discount is valid across all four of British Airways’ cabins – economy class, premium economy class, business class and first class – and can be accessed by visiting

Nicole Backo, regional commercial manager, South West Pacific, said: “There is an abundance of beautiful, historic and exciting destinations all over Europe. We hope our special Commonwealth Games discount opens the door for more people to visit and experience the amazing cultures on offer.”

One of Europe’s finest destinations, Glasgow, is a former European City of Culture. The city claimed its crown thanks to its stunning architecture, music everywhere you look, an amazing food scene, and for being home to some of the largest civic museums and galleries in Europe.

The city is recognised internationally as one of the world’s leading creative centres alongside Berlin and London and is the greenest city in Europe with more parks and gardens per capita than any other city.

There will be more than a thousand performances in over one hundred different locations across the city as part of the Cultural celebrations for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. Live zones will be set up across the city so everyone can be part of the fun.
