Stunning deals to over 150 destinations have been announced by British Airways as its annual September sale is given special impetus by the Covid crisis.
With travel dates in 2021 available, and the airline’s flexible booking policy offering no change fees or a voucher exchange for bookings made during the September Sale with travel before the end of August 2021, customers can book with “absolute confidence” that they can move their flights or holiday should their plans change, says the airline.
Customers must book before the end of the month.
On flights, customers can take a trip to New York for just £299 return, San Francisco for £348 return or Miami for £349 return. Those who want to hit the Caribbean beaches of Antigua or St Lucia can do so for £384 return and £399 return respectively or soak up a slice of luxury in the Seychelles for just £499 return. Travellers wanting to head east can visit Dubai where return flights start from £299 while Muscat starts from £399 return.
A selection of holiday packages are also included in the sale this year. These include seven-night European beach breaks (including flights and hotels) from just £179 per person, including to Corfu and Sardinia.
Alternatively, for those looking further afield, seven-night holidays to the newly launched destination of Montego Bay are from just £619 per person. Meanwhile, seven-night holidays to Barbados are from £549pp, Orlando from £399pp and New York from just £379pp.

On top of these sale prices, British Airways has over one million seats available for £39 or less each-way. Destinations include Geneva, Venice and Rome.

Andrew Brem, British Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We know that many of our customers are eager to start exploring the world again and that’s why we are offering them great prices coupled with flexible booking options. Customers who book during the September Sale can take a voucher if they change their minds and we believe that this, alongside enhanced safety measures at the airport and onboard, will give customers the confidence to book their next getaway and get traveling again.”
As part of the September Sale, there are also a number of tempting Avios part payment deals. These include New York return flights for £179 plus 25,000 Avios, and Los Angeles return for £209 plus 32,000 Avios. As always, customers can choose to reduce the cost of a commercial flight through Avios part payment, while still collecting Avios with their booking.

The airline emphasises that “British Airways is committed to practices which inspire confidence in travel” such as unrivalled booking flexibility and enhanced safety measures.

British Airways Holidays customers have a further range of flexible booking options open to them. Highlights include low deposits from just £75pp with flexible payments and final balance not now due until three weeks before travel, ATOL protection and a 24-hour holiday helpline.
