We have featured two British Airways promotional codes in recent weeks. One was for 15% off flights departing from Leeds Bradford (even if connecting to a long-haul) and 15% off long-haul flights in economy starting in Euro-zone countries.
A new BA discount code has just been released which is a lot more convenient for HFP readers in the South East.
Via this link, you receive a 10% discount on any short-haul flight departing from Gatwick or London City.
The rules are:
Book by 5th January
Travel by 31st March
Domestic, Eurotraveller and Club Europe all included
Short-haul departures only
Discount is off the total fare including taxes
Minimum spend £100 per person
Maximum 9 people per booking
Works OK on ‘hand baggage only’ fares as well as standard ones
You need to use promotional code EUROPEOFFER in the relevant box on the ba.com booking page.
If you have a paid-for BMI credit card (from the old days ….) then this can be combined with the 10% base fare discount you receive via the special BMI booking link at diamondclub.org! However, note that the Diamond Club deal cannot be used on ‘hand baggage only’ fares.
