How’s that! Get your flight to Australia for just Â£215
Even the airlines are getting in on Ashes fever, following England’s victory over Australia this afternoon.
British Airways and Qantas have teamed up to offer fares to Australia based on the first innings scores of the second npower test, with the number of seats determined by the amount of runs scored by the opposing team.
As Australia were all out for 215 in their first innings reply to England’s 425 on Saturday, both British Airways and Qantas will be giving away 425 flights to Sydney for Â£215 – an amazing reduction on a typical fare of Â£730. The offer is available tomorrow (21 July, 2009) on British Airways flights from 10am, and Qantas flights from 8am.
In the previous Ashes in 2005, British Airways offered 367 seats at Â£373 when Australia scored 367 runs for 373 against England in the final test. Flights were sold out within 30 minutes.Â
