The Republic of Ireland is the latest destination to benefit from the launch of new year round low fares by British Airways.
Prices from London Gatwick to Dublin will start from £69 return including taxes from Thursday 26 September.
In line with the low fares already introduced on 170 European routes, the minimum stay and advance purchase booking restrictions have been scrapped. The lowest return fare previously available from Gatwick to Dublin was £224 including taxes compared to the new fare of £69, saving £155.
Other new fares to Ireland include Manchester to Cork from £89, saving £255, Southampton to Dublin from £99, saving £250 and Leeds Bradford to Dublin from £99, saving £334, with flights operated by British Airways CitiExpress.
Tiffany Hall, the airline’s head of sales and marketing UK and Ireland, said: “British Airways is back on the shopping list for low fares to the Republic of Ireland.
“Our low fares are being welcomed by business travellers and holiday makers alike, who appreciate the value we are offering as a full service airline at prices which were once only associated with the no frills carriers.”
Launching on the same day, are more low fares within the UK between Plymouth and Newcastle, Aberdeen and Glasgow starting from £129 return including taxes. A new low fare of £149 return from Heathrow to Basle, saving £346 on the previous fare of £495 including taxes is also being introduced, operated by SWISS.
