Skis for free from London City

04/10/2011

Winter sports fans can fly their skis for free to the top three British Airways ski destinations from London City Airport.

 

Customers who book flights to Chambery, Geneva or Zurich between today (October 3) and October 31 will be invited to take an extra piece of hold luggage on flights between December and March.

 

This is in addition to the existing free one bag allowance and can be used for skis or other winter sports equipment.

 

British Airways currently operates seven flights a week from London City to Geneva and 22 flights a week to Zurich. From December 17 the four times a week winter only services to Chambery will begin.

 

All inclusive one-way fares to all three destinations start at £65 and are available to book on ba.com.

 

All fares include free on-line check in and seat selection up to 24 hours before departure, no debit card charges and complimentary food and drinks on board the aircraft.

 

Luke Hayhoe, general manager commercial, BA CityFlyer, said: “We do already offer a generous 23 kilogram baggage allowance but wanted to give our skiing passengers an additional bonus this winter.  Providing they book their flights in the October booking period they can take their skis for free until the end of March”.

Editors note

?Flights are operated by BA CityFlyer, a wholly owned British Airways subsidiary airline, on its brand new fleet of Embraer 170 and 190 aircraft
