British Airways launches big sales drive in Australia

May 17, 2017 Headline News No Comments Email Email

British Airways, the only remaining European airline to fly to Australia, has begun a major push to lure Australians to summery London in the southern winter months, and entice them to visit Singapore as well.

Some very cheap deals, with a long booking window, were launched last night. They may well persuade travellers thinking of heading to Europe via the Middle East to reconsider and switch to Singapore, the traditional Kangaroo Route.

The British Airways fares are available to book until midnight on 14 June 2017 for flights departing Australia up until 31 March 2018. Return flights between Sydney and Singapore start from $688 in World Traveller (economy cabin), $1888 in World Traveller Plus (premium economy), $3088 in Club World (business class) and $4588 in the exclusive First cabin.

For those wanting to travel further afield, fares to London start from $1399* in World Traveller, $3299 in World Traveller Plus, $5999 in Club World and $10,599 in First. Those fares include taxes, fees and charges, as quoted on 2 May 2017. Terms and conditions apply.

Nicole Backo, British Airways’ regional general manager, South West Pacific, said: “Now is a great time to snap up a great deal with British Airways, and the long booking window enables customers to lock in the great-value fares well into 2018.

“As Australia enters its winter months, our special fares offer the perfect opportunity to secure low fares for travellers to escape the cold.  We are the only European airline to fly to Australia and our vast route network covers more than 200 destinations across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, offering the chance to explore and soak up the history and culture of a wide range of destinations.”

British Airways’ customers can expect to travel in complete comfort and style through two of the world’s award-winning airports, Singapore Changi Airport (a perennial number one in world airport satisfaction surveys) and BA’s home at London Heathrow’s Terminal 5.

Last month, BA announced a GBP 400 million investment in Club World, a host of new lounges around the world, direct security and lounge access at London Heathrow through the new ‘First Wing’, the latest generation Wi-Fi to be fitted on long-haul and short-haul fleets over the next two years and self-service check-in and biometric boarding gates to speed up the airport journey.

British Airways, which has been flying to Australia for over 80 years, operates a daily service between Sydney and London Heathrow via Singapore. British Airways’ route network currently covers more than 200 destinations.
