baKUWAIT: Home to Shakespeare, Bond and the British Royal Family, it is little wonder why London is still a favorite holiday hotspot among Kuwait residents.

To encourage residents of Kuwait to explore London and beyond, British Airways is offering special fares from Kuwait to the British capital, which are available to book until the 7 September for travel before 31 March 2016. Paolo De Renzis, Head of Middle East, Africa and Central Asia Sales for British Airways said, “We fly daily between Kuwait City and London offering our customers excellent connections to 188 destinations across our network. We hope this latest offer that allows travel until the end of March next year, encourages even more people living in Kuwait to explore their favourite destination or visit somewhere new. “We have been flying to Kuwait for over 80 years and it’s still one of our best performing markets in the Middle East and we are committed to offering the best of British hospitality to our customers.

We have received a lot of support from Kuwait over the years as we have grown the British Airways brand in the Middle East. It’s a market that we feel very loyal to and we see potential for further growth in the future.” When planning a holiday to London, visitors from Kuwait could include some of the top 21st century British landmarks (as voted for in a recent poll conducted by British Airways’ High Life magazine) and include a visit to the Millennium Bridge, the London Eye and the Tate Modern.
