The statement was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria Nosakhare Emma-Iyamu of QuadrantMSLGROUP, the communication outfit that handles BA media issues.

Mr Emma-Iyamu told NAN that the minimum airfare for a return-ticket from London to Abuja was usually $700 per passenger.

“This promotional offer from BA is to reaffirm our commitment to our loyal and esteemed northern customers,” Mr Emma-Iyamu quoted Mr Olayinka in the statement.

He said that the selling period for the slashed fare is from the 15th of May and outbound travel will be from 1st of June to 30th June.

He said that BA resumed flights to and from the Abuja International Airport on April 20, after the Federal Government had completed the repairs of the Abuja runway that lasted six weeks.

Mr Olayinka said the slashed fare would create an ease for travelers who fly the Abuja-London route, especially, as they planned to manage their travel budgets.
