Kickstart your summer holidays in Europe this year with free business class tickets. Frequent flyers who book a premium long haul return flight from this Thursday (6 February) will receive two free Club Europe (business class) tickets which can be used throughout the summer.

The offer is open to passengers who book and travel on a fully flexible Club World return ticket to any of the airline’s longhaul destinations from 6 February to 30 April 2003.

The two Club Europe tickets can be booked once the longhaul journey has been completed and are valid for travel throughout the summer holidays from 4 March to 30 September 2003.
