British Airways’ new ‘handbag only’ fares are being introduced at two new airports, the carrier announced this week.

British Airways’ new ‘handbag only’ fares are being introduced at two new airports, the carrier announced this week.

Officials from the UK’s flag airline said on Wednesday that the ‘no frills’ fares, which offer reduced prices but fewer amenities such as checked luggage, are now on available from Heathrow and London City airports.

From London City, customers can purchase handbag only tickets to Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stockholm. From BA’s Heathrow hub, the reduced fares are on offer for a number of routes including Rome, Paris (Orly and Charles du Galle), Glasgow, Rotterdam, Edinburg and Stockholm.

The announcement comes just weeks after the airline first introduced the hand luggage only programme via its short-haul network from Gatwick airport.

Short-haul operations head Robin Glover-Faure said on behalf of the airline that the scheme has seen very positive results since it was launched at Gatwick earlier this year. He added that should the programme see continued success at Heathrow and London City that the fares will be rolled out to BA’s entire short-haul network in the in the coming months.
