In response to an increased demand for travel to and from the UK for education purposes, the Ministry of Tourism requested two additional British Airways flights which the airline has today confirmed.
The two additional flights depart London Heathrow on 1st and 15th September respectively and return the following days, effectively doubling the number of return flights during September. British Airways have confirmed that seats on these flights will be on sale via their website from today.
“With the start of the academic year approaching, the Ministry recognises that parents are keen to confirm travel plans to accompany students needing to travel overseas to continue their education,” said Hon. Kenneth Bryan, Minister for Tourism. “These additional flights are primarily for this purpose and I urge the public to please be mindful of this when making travel plans, so that those with a genuine need to travel are able to secure a booking.”
