- PRESS RELEASE
British Airways customers are flocking to Dubai this festive season to escape the chilly northern hemisphere winter. The news comes as the city features in the airline's top five longhaul destinations for Christmas travel.
A firm favourite among travellers, Dubai makes a regular appearance in British Airways' top destinations lists. In a recent poll on BA's Facebook page, more than 2,660 users nominated the overseas destinations they most want to visit in 2013 and Dubai was named in the top five. Featured alongside Dubai were New York, Australia, Hong Kong and Rio de Janeiro.
"British Airways has been flying to Dubai for 75 years and to the Middle East for 80 years," De Renzis said. "We have a long association with this region and our competitive prices, quality service and great connections to Europe and North America are among the reasons people choose to fly here with British Airways."
More than 1.9 million people are booked to fly with British Airways this festive season, including almost 30,000 on Christmas Day. For those who have left their shopping until the last minute, British Airways has stocked up on gifts for its busiest shopping month.
Research shows that nearly a third (32%) of people would consider buying their Christmas presents on board flights, while a further 17% of those travelling will forget to pack a present, usually for a brother-in-law.
