Easter Eggstravaganza

20th Apr 2000

It’s ‘chocs away’ for air travellers at British Airways as 100,000 Easter eggs take to the skies over the bank holiday weekend.

Jayne Higginson, the airline’s chief chocolate buyer and holder of one of the carrier’s most enviable jobs, said: “The Easter bunny will be kept busy at 35,000 feet on all of our long-haul flights.

“Research shows that more than 95 per cent of our passengers on
inter-continental trips enjoy an in-flight sweet, either to eat on-board or take with them as a gift.”

British Airways will see a record number of holidaymakers scrambling for the skies at Easter. Nearly 200,000 passengers are booked to jet away on the airline’s flights.

Customer trends are changing and this year more people are going further afield for their break with Florida, New York and South Africa proving to be the top holiday choices.


Top European city getaways include Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Prague.
