British Airways has launched a promotion for students
travelling for further studies in the UK, entitling them to
check-in an extra piece of luggage weighing up to 23kg, in
addition to the current allowance of one checked bag of up to 23kg
in the World Traveller (economy cabin).
The tickets are valid for a year and students
can change dates without any additional change fee.
Noella Ferns, British Airways’ Head of Sales, Asia
Pacific, said, “Following months of uncertainty caused by the
global lockdown, we are delighted to be offering direct flights
between Singapore and the UK. We realise that going to university
is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we would love for the
students to start this adventure with us. Packing for school can
be stressful for many students (and their parents!) as there is
just so much they wish to bring with them. To help ease this
issue, we are proud to continue with the tradition of supporting
our students with a more generous baggage allowance. On behalf of British Airways, we wish all the
students the best as they embark on this new and exciting journey
of their lives.”
In response to COVID19, British Airways has
introduced a range of measures to help keep customers safe. Prior
to travel, they will receive information on changes at their
airport and onboard experience and tips on how to prepare for
their journey. Students will also be asked to help manage the
wellness of themselves and everyone else travelling by:
– Checking-in online, downloading their boarding
pass and where possible self-scanning their boarding passes at the
– Observing social distancing and using hand sanitisers that are placed throughout airports.
– Using new contactless, automated features at
lounges, including a new online food and drink service.
– Wearing a facemask at all times and bringing
enough to replace them every four hours for longer flights.
– Ensuring they have everything they need from
their hand luggage before departure, and where possible, storing
their carry-on bag under the seat in front of them.
– Not travelling if they think they have any
symptoms of COVID19.
British Airways also cleans all key surfaces
including seats, screens, seat buckles and tray tables after every
flight and each aircraft is completely cleaned from nose to tail
The special offer is available through five of
British Airways’ key travel partners in Singapore: PriceBreaker, Chan Brothers
Travel, New Shan Travel, CTM and UOB Travel.
