British Airways Launch Low Fares For Hand Luggage Only Fliers

BA Hand Luggage Only Fares

If you travel with hand luggage only, you can now save up to £20 on the cost of your flight by choosing to fly with British Airways. Following the success of this offer at Gatwick earlier this year, it’s now also available on BA flights departing from both London Heathrow and London City Airports.

Details of the offer below:

Gatwick (LGW) - BA Hand Baggage Only Flights

The fares are now on sale for departures between Gatwick and five short-haul destinations: Amsterdam, Jersey, Dubrovnik, Turin and Tunis at £20 lower than the current lowest return fares (£10 one-way), inclusive of taxes.

Heathrow (LHR) - BA Hand Baggage Only Flights

The fares are now on sale for departures from September 24 between Heathrow and nine short-haul destinations: Amsterdam, Stockholm, Barcelona, Paris (Charles de Gaulle and Orly), Rome, Rotterdam, Glasgow and Edinburgh at £20 lower than the current lowest return fares (£10 one-way), inclusive of taxes.

London City (LCY) - BA Hand Baggage Only Flights

Lower fares for hand baggage-only customers will be available from London City to Amsterdam, Stockholm, Edinburgh and Glasgow at £20 lower than the current lowest return fares (£10 one-way), inclusive of taxes.

What is British Airways Hand luggage Allowance?

BA customers choosing the hand baggage-only fare can carry on a case measuring no more than 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, plus a handbag or laptop bag.

Ironically, so many people nowadays travel with hand luggage only that when you get on-board you’re often hard pressed to find a space in the overhead lockers and subsequently the crew are required to put the bags in the hold. At least this time you’ll be saving some money!

Essential Travel also launched a new Hand Luggage-only Travel Insurance policy allowing people who pack light to save 10% on the cost of their premium. Find out more about our Hand Luggage-only policy.
