British Airways is delighted to once again present its popular annual offer for students travelling to the UK in the World Traveller economy class and World Traveller Plus premium economy. The offer entitles each passenger to check an extra piece of luggage weighing up to 23kg, in addition to the current allowance of one checked bag of up to 23kg. Moreover, students can enjoy up to 10 per cent discount when they book tickets in the World Traveller and World Traveller Plus cabins. Students heading to Canada and the U.S. can also enjoy up to 7 per cent off in economy and premium economy cabins. These special offers are available for booking on ba.com only.
Robert Williams, British Airways’ head of sales – Asia Pacific and the Middle East, said, “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 headache, 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.”
The double baggage allowance student offer is available for booking on or before 30 September 2017 and is valid for outbound travel from until 30 September 2017. Students can enjoy this offer on any of the 49 flights a week from New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
British Airways is also offering full refunds with no penalty charged to students whose visa applications are rejected by their national embassies. Students are only required to cancel the booking prior to departure and provide a statement from the embassy stating that the visa has been denied or rejected.
