Flights for Film Friendly Families

From 12 November 2002, British Airways is teaming up with Odeon cinemas to give away free kids’ flights.

Every adult who accompanies a child to watch a family film with a U or PG rating at participating Odeon cinemas will get a free child’s flight ticket if they book with British Airways before12 December 2002. The only cost they will be expected to pay are the standard taxes on the ticket.

The offer applies to over 30 long haul and all short haul destinations on the British Airways’ network.

A family of four with two children would normally pay £2520 to travel to Orlando over Christmas. This promotion would give a saving of around £910 - that’s 36 per cent off.

Two adults taking two children can save up to £82 on a trip to Paris over the February half term, with prices starting from £194 for the whole family.


The tickets can be booked for travel any time between 15 November 2002 and 7 April 2003 including Christmas and school holidays.

Martin George, British Airways’ Director of Marketing and Commercial Development, said: “This is a great promotion for us to be involved in and a fantastic opportunity for customers to get a great deal on their family holidays.”

á All routes except India, Jeddah, Sydney, Melbourne, Bangkok and Singapore are available under the promotion.

á Children applying for a free flight ticket must be between 2 and 11 years old.

á The offer is limited to the 250,000 tickets for children.
