FAMILIES could save a packet this summer – as kids get free flights on British Airways flights within the UK.

If you’re flying between Heathrow and Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Leeds, Newcastle and Belfast then children under 12 will travel free with a full paying adult.

Up to two children can travel free per adult – even during the school holidays.

Tickets must be booked between now and May 13, for flights between June 1 and November 5.

Adam Daniels, British Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We know it can be a struggle to keep the kids entertained over the summer holidays.

"Once one break from school finishes parents have to start turning their attention to the next one.

“With so many fantastic tourist attractions and activities for kids across Britain, the offer also looks set to give UK tourism a boost by encouraging families to visit London, the North, Scotland and Northern Ireland for their holidays.”

The airline has also opened a dedicated family check-in zone at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 to speed things up for families heading on holiday.

There's also a free kids' menu at Gordon Ramsay Plane Food and Huxleys Restaurant and Bar in Terminal 5.
