British Airways launches 2020 special to London and New York

British Airways’ New Year special launched today (15 January) with fares from Accra to London starting from US$579.

The offer includes flights to New York via London, with fares starting from US$959.

The offer runs until 29 January and is subject to availability.

Kola Olayinka, British Airways commercial manager in West Africa, says now is a good time for shoppers to visit New York or London to take advantage of post-Christmas sales.

“In London many attractions are quieter than usual, so it’s also a great time to visit places such as The Tower of London, the Natural History Museum or Madame Tussauds without having to queue for a long time. There are also good deals on accommodation though British Airways Holidays.”

British Airways is a full-service airline and provides complimentary food and drinks, free seat selection 24 hours before departure, a selection of in-flight entertainment and a generous baggage allowance.

Fares include all government taxes, fees and surcharges, but may fluctuate due to exchange rates.
