British Airways Doubles Baggage Allowance for Hong Kong Students

Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Wednesday, 25 June 2014

British Airways is continuing its tradition of supporting Hong Kong students by providing them with twice the baggage allowance, up to 46kg, as they embark on their studies in the UK and Europe.

British Airways is proud to support students from Hong Kong and what better way to do so then by providing them with extra luggage allowance to take their home comforts with them, said Tracy Dedman, British Airways regional general manager, Greater China and the Philippines. The UK is a popular destination for education, and we want parents in Hong Kong to feel reassured that their children have enough room to take cherished possessions with them as they start the new term abroad.

This offer is only available for students under the age of 35, and proof of age and valid student identity are required at the time of booking. A London stopover is allowed if travelling on to another destination in Europe and tickets must originate and be issued in Hong Kong. Other terms and conditions apply.

British Airways has been flying to Hong Kong for over 75 years and currently operates 14 flights a week between London Heathrow and Hong Kong. The airline is the first to launch an A380 service from Hong Kong to London, and flights on this hugely popular aircraft type commenced on 23 October 2013.
