A trip to London this summer with the kids has just been made a whole lot easier, thanks to British Airways, Heathrow and Leeds Bradford® airports.

Science Museum Transportation Area


Running from today until November 1, 2015, the airline is launching a ‘Kids Fly Free’ scheme from Leeds Bradford® airport to London Heathrow, the gateway to the UK’s capital city.

To help keep the costs down once they get there, there are plenty of free things for families to do including:



  • National History Museum
  • National Maritime Museum
  • Science Museum
  • Harry Potter’s Platform 9¾s at King’s Cross station
  • Princess Diana Memorial playground in Kensington Gardens
  • National Army Museum
  • Richmond Park
  • The South Bank
  • Highgate Wood

Andrew Crawley, British Airways’ chief commercial officer, said: “We know it can be a struggle to keep the kids entertained over the summer holidays and long car journeys can be difficult. So what quicker, easier or cheaper way to see a bit more of the UK, than to jump on a British Airways flight where the kids travel for free?”

John Parkin, Leeds Bradford® Airport’s chief executive, commented: ”We are pleased to be working with British Airways to introduce this fantastic Kids Go Free offer. Families will be able to take advantage of flying to London during the August school holiday period or for a weekend break. We look forward to welcoming parents and their children flying from Leeds Bradford as they choose an easier and cheaper way to reach to the Capital.”

Families wanting to stay the night are also being offered a BA Holidays accommodation at a range of London hotels with prices from £82 per night.

For those who want to head out of London, the airline is also offering customers 20 per cent off Avis car hire when they book a flight and hotel together.
