Summer gets off to a flying start next week as British Airways welcomes the sun season with free ice cream, low fares and the chance to win holidays from London City Airport.
To mark the airline’s 100th birthday there will be 100 return seats for just £100 on offer to each of three selected British Airways’ sunshine destinations from London City.
To celebrate a mobile ice cream van will drive round East London, setting up at Westfield Stratford and ExCel London over the course of three days next week.
Cabin crew will give away free ice creams and picture postcards with the chance to win a number of prizes, including a five-star holiday to Skiathos, flights to Europe and hotel stays, and lots of giveaways including luggage tags and beach balls.
The ice cream van will set off on Thursday May 16 and park at London Excel before moving onto Westfield, Stratford on May 17 and 18.
