British Airways is launching two ski routes for winter and more flights available from Heathrow for under £40.
The new Heathrow flights to Grenoble, ideally located for access to some of Europe’s best ski resorts will depart on Saturdays from December 2 with fares starting from £39 each way.
Skiers will also be able to reach the Italian slopes via Turin from £40 each way.
The airline already operates flights between Gatwick and the Italian and French ski hubs during the winter season, so the new flights from Heathrow will take the number of weekly flights to the two cities up to 18.
Additional low fare flights from Heathrow start from £32 each way and include: Tallinn (from £32 each way), Amsterdam (from £37 each way), Milan (from £38 each way) and Billund from £37 each way, which also has a ‘kids fly free offer’ available too.
Adam Daniels, British Airways’ chief commercial officer, said: “Turin and Grenoble are within easy reach of some of the world’s best ski resorts so we’re excited to be adding them to our Heathrow network. Our ultra-low fares will get our customers a round-trip to some of the hottest (and coolest) destinations in Europe for less than £40 and they can also carry their skis* for free as part of their checked baggage allowance.”
The expansion of the ski route network from Heathrow also includes increased flights to popular resorts in Europe.
Flights to Salzburg from Heathrow will double from two to four per week and there will be two additional weekly services to Innsbruck.
Frequency to Reykjavik will also be doubled with two direct flights a day from Terminal 5 and Sofia and Zurich will benefit from an additional service each week.
For skiers who want to go to North America, the airline recently launched direct flights from Gatwick to Oakland, which is one of the closest international airports to the slopes of Lake Tahoe.
It has also re-timed flights to Calgary specifically to help customers meet public transport connections to the biggest ski resorts.
