travel & outdoors: Bargain of the week
Saturday 19 April 1997
The reason for this extraordinary offer is that the airline's schedules are designed for business travellers coming to the City of London - the inbound flights arrive well before 9am. But that means the return leg has no clearly defined market. So Air UK (0345 666777) aims to fill these flights by selling off the first flight out for a fare well below average, and also by waiving the normal Saturday night stay at the destination.
The deal will suit business travellers to Holland or Scotland who don't mind arriving at their destination in mid-morning, as long as they save a fortune by doing so.
