A Lasting new year’s resolution with British Airways

A survey commissioned by British Airways revealed that 33 per cent of residents of Kuwait travelled long-haul only once over a period of twelve months. To encourage people who have made the New Year’s resolution to travel more frequently, British Airways is launching special fares to the UK, Europe, USA and Canada.

“We want to encourage people to experience new destinations first hand and start the New Year on the go.” said Paolo De Renzis, British Airways’ Area Commercial Manager for the Middle East and Central Asia. “The geographical position of the Middle East, intersecting between Europe, Asia and Africa, offers unparalleled opportunities to travel frequently to different continents.”

For travel enthusiasts deciding where to fly, British Airways has created a list of top destinations to visit in 2015. The list includes a few far flung locations, combined with other attractive European and North American destinations that are a favourite with travellers from Kuwait. Passengers flying with British Airways can choose from the airline’s network of 179 destinations and enjoy the best of British hospitality in the skies.

Additionally, London is the perfect transfer hub for travellers from Kuwait who are flying elsewhere in Europe or North America. The survey also revealed that 27 per cent of Kuwait residents voted for London as their preferred city break and with British Airways, passengers can take advantage of a stopover in London to explore a city that is home to well-known landmarks and is renowned for its world-class shopping.

For travellers looking to enjoy a city holiday in Europe or North America, British Airways suggests Berlin, Seattle and Seville as leading favourites as part of the British Airways list of top destinations for 2015. For beach goers and people looking to unwind or enjoy a bit of surfing, the destinations that made it on the 2015 beach breaks list include Barbados and Greece among others.

De Renzis added, “In 2015, we want to offer people the chance to travel long-haul more than once a year and visit some of our top destinations for 2015 that have been picked because they provide unique and attractive experiences.”
