British Airways offering a 10% discount on flights from Australia to London

British Airways is marking 80 years of flying to Australia from London (albeit on routings far more convulted than today!) with a special 10% discount on return flights from Australia to the UK and Europe.

The discount is offered in conjunction with BBC First, the BBC’s recently launched commercial TV channel in Australia.

Note this only applies to flights from Australia and not flights originating in the UK or Europe.

The T&Cs state that offer is valid for travel up to 30 June 2017 (however flights cannot normally be booked more than year in advance) and bookings must be made by 30 June 2016. It is unusual for a promotion to last this long, but we’re assuming it’s not an error…

Note that the offer is only valid for BA operated flights from Sydney to London via Singapore. Connections from Qantas operated flights Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane to Sydney are available, but these must be booked on a BA flight number.

To book, go to the BBC First website, click on the carousel until you see the above BA graphic, and click on “Exclusive Offer”. Note the discount does not apply if you go directly to or via any other website.
