BA unveils special offer for Bahrain travellers

LONDON, March 1, 2018

British Airways’ pilots regularly enjoy spectacular views in the air and on the ground around the world, and are encouraging travellers to experience the same when they fly.

The airline has launched a special fares sale offering residents in Bahrain a chance to experience amazing sights from around the world. Running across all its cabins through to March 6, 2018 with travel valid until December 12, customers can now book return flights to London and New York for starting from as little as BD250 ($660.9). 

To ensure that travellers experience the best, British Airways’ travel experts have collected top tips from pilots allowing customers to begin sightseeing before they take-off. Pilots’ top views from the air include:

1. Central London – Approach into Heathrow
Home to British Airways, most flights landing into Heathrow arrive from the East, offering a great opportunity for unbeatable views of London. Highlights include famous landmarks such as Westminster, Big Ben, the London Eye, the Shard, countless football stadia, as well as the famous River Thames that winds through this cosmopolitan city.

Book return flights to London before March 6 for as little as BD250 with travel valid until December 12.

2. New York (JFK Airport)
On a clear day and depending where you’re flying in from, there are numerous different views of the Big Apple to take in. When flying in from London, your best bet to take in the views after your fly over the Atlantic is to sit on the left side of the plane as you approach the East Coast of the USA. Sunset views when you fly out of New York are often remarkable as a golden glow covers some of Manhattan’s famous skyline and structures.

Book your return flights to New York (via London Heathrow) before March 6for as little as BD303 ($801) with travel valid until December 12.

3. San Diego – Sunset
The haze hugging the hills casts a beautiful red-orange glow on the city and, with the skyscrapers dotting the urban horizon, the view is stunning. In summer, the dry heat of the San Diego summer sun mixes with seaside squawks and sail sheets tapping against the masts of the yachts moored in the harbour to fill the senses.

4. San Francisco – Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and bay
Flying over the Atlantic doesn’t mean looking out over a plain stretch of water, with flights between Europe and North America offering some of the most magnificent in-air sights of the planet. Taking in the Northern Lights on a night flight between San Francisco and London is definitely worth staying awake for, while the San Francisco landing brings the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and infamous Alcatraz island prison into view.

5. Seattle/Vancouver – Rocky Mountains
Californian hotspots may rank high for scenic aerial views of the west coast but the northern parts of the North American coast also offer stunning approaches. Less than 200 miles apart, the Emerald City of Seattle and Vancouver in Canada were cited as two of the most impressive destinations to fly over and into, with the meandering Rockies mountain range, lakes, and pockets of tiny, verdant islands offering spectacular views from both sides of the cabin.

6. Miami – South Beach
For those heading to enjoy the Miami heat and miles of white sand beaches, British Airways’ pilots highlighted the approach into Miami for the stunning views over South Beach and Little Havana.

7. Milan – Lakes of Northern Italy
For some of British Airways’ finest, Milan is voted as one of their favourite cities. The aircraft typically heads North West when departing Milan, presenting passengers and crew with stunning views of the Italian lakes sitting just below the towering Alps.

8. Salzburg – The Alps
For those keen to see the mountain tops featured in classic musical, play and film, The Sound of Music, flying into Austria never disappoints! British Airways’ flights to Salzburg provide a unique perspective on the beautiful scenery of the Alps, one of the most picturesque and famous mountain ranges in the world. - TradeArabia News Service
