British Airways has launched a flash sale on short-haul economy seats from London Gatwick.
Over 200,000 seats have been reduced to £30 or less, for travel until 29th March 2020.
The lowest fare in the system is just £24 for a one-way trip to Nice or Verona. This really is very low and puts BA firmly into ‘low cost carrier’ territory in terms of price.
Other routes which BA highlighted as offering the cheapest fares were Venice, Amsterdam, Geneva, Turin, Cologne, Faro, Dubrovnik, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Jersey.
You need to book by Tuesday 5th November.
The lower flight fares have also driven lower prices at BA Holidays, and it worth comparing ‘flight and hotel’ packages via this page – the price can often be genuinely cheaper than booking each element separately.
PS. Remember that the brand new Club Aspire lounge is now open in the South Terminal at London Gatwick, which is the one used by British Airways. This is accessible with a Priority Pass (free with Amex Platinum or buy one here) or Lounge Club (two FREE passes with Amex Gold) cards. Our review of the new Club Aspire lounge at Gatwick South is here.
