British Airways is offering special rates from Kingston to London for the coming Christmas and New Year season.

The fares begin at US$2,233.33 in Club World; US$1,319.33 in World Traveller Plus and US$876.76 - USD976.76 in World Traveller, inclusive of taxes and fees. Tickets are available for purchase from October 13-31, 2017, for travel December 1-22, 2017, outbound and January 3-31, 2018, return.

Diane Corrie, Commercial Manager Caribbean, said that “British Airways is committed to providing customers with excellent service and competitive fares to places that people most want to fly.”

“Right now”, Corrie said, “there is keen interest in Christmas in London and beyond as local families want to visit relatives and loved ones for this special occasion or enjoy the holidays in a different culture and climate.”

She noted for instance that during the magical winter in London, visitors can enjoy events like Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park – the United Kingdom’s largest outdoor rink, where people skate to live music.

Of course, a ride on the London Eye would give a panoramic view of the city and street markets like the Tate Modern and Southbank. Visitors can also embrace the festivities at London Bridge City Christmas Market where local vendors offer a variety of food, craft and gift items.

To crown it all, Mrs. Corrie said, “Visitors may enjoy traditional carols and classic Christmas songs at a range of concerts including the Fanfare Trumpeters of the Royal Logistics Corps and the Royal Choral Society which bring pump and pageantry to the Royal Albert Hall or the Choir of King’s College in Cambridge.”

“The sparkle of London Christmas lights instantly creates a festive spirit”, she added.
