British Airways lessens students' burden

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: For students going abroad for higher studies, here is good news. British Airways has announced a special offer on baggage for students flying out of Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai to destinations in the U.K., places in Europe, Canada and the U.S. They will be allowed to carry 23 kg excess baggage without charge. Those flying out of Hyderabad will get a discount of Rs. 4,000.

Quoting industry statistics, a British Airways communiqué said that annually about 1.6 lakh students from the country go abroad for higher education, mainly to the West.

According to Judy Jarvis, British Airways, Regional Commercial Manager (South Asia), “Students travelling abroad need to take a lot of extra baggage, especially if they are on their maiden trip. But the cost of excess baggage can be a serious problem for them. With this offer, we have increased the baggage limit for students and dependents travelling with them.”

For details, call 1800-102-35922 (toll free).
