From 1st June to 31st October, two children under 12 will fly entirely free when accompanied by an adult.
Applicable routes to or from London Heathrow are:
Billund (in Denmark, home of Legoland)
There are genuinely no catches attached to this offer.
You pay the standard lowest adult fare for your flight as shown on ba.com
The kids (under 12) are entirely free – you don’t even pay taxes
Two children can travel per adult
You can book a one-way or return flight
There are no minimum stay requirements, no ‘Saturday night’ rule and no minimum booking period although there is a comment that “Blackout periods apply on some destinations”
You can find full details at ba.com here.
If you are travelling on this offer, BA has also arranged a ‘kids eat free’ deal at Giraffe in Heathrow Terminal 5 – see the small print on ba.com for details.
The offer only works for point-to-point trips to or from Heathrow – you won’t find a trip such as Leeds – Heathrow – Berlin gets any cheaper if booked as one ticket.
Remember that children under 16 travel free on Heathrow Express now. Given that adult tickets can cost less than £6 one-way when booked in advance, this does give the potential for a cheap family break in London.
Note that the terms and conditions specifically state that you will be in trouble if you book two child tickets along with a ticket for yourself – in order to reserve a full row of seats for yourself – and then you turn up at the airport without any kids …..
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (October 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
