Kids fly for free this summer on British Airways

Families look set to keep it closer to home and take more breaks this summer thanks to a partnership between British Airways and some of the UK’s biggest airports.

The airline is offering free flights for children under 12 who travel with a full paying adult on journeys between Heathrow and Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Inverness, Belfast and the home of LEGO; Billund in Denmark.
The partnership means up to two children can fly for free when travelling with an adult even during the school holidays. It can be used on Euro Traveller tickets booked from May 10 to October 1 for travel from June 1 until October 31, 2017. Find out more and book online at ba.com/kids-fly-free.
