CRAWLEY, England, October 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
British Airways has revealed its top holiday destinations for travellers still wanting to get away this October half-term for a late autumn getaway.
Favourite locations for travellers include hotspots in destinations such as North America, Caribbean holidays and the Middle East. With increased frequencies of flights to Barbados and St Lucia, this summer, customers now have increased choices when it comes to leisure destinations.
The Caribbean is proving a hit with families and increasing the number of flights to a variety of destinations is providing customers with more choice for their holidays in Barbados and St Lucia. British Airways offers a wide range of three to five-star hotels in Barbados, including the all-inclusive 3.5* Island Inn for the budget-conscious family. This quaint, newly renovated property is situated in the Garrison area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is less than a mile from the centre of historic Bridgetown. Florida holidays are still a top choice for families looking for family entertainment and the 3* Ramada Hotel Gateway Hotel is perfectly located to reach the theme parks.
New York remains the top American destination with travellers over half-term, with city breaks in New York and fly-drives remaining popular choices to visit the Big Apple. October also marks the 125th Anniversary of the opening of the Statue of Liberty and will be the last chance to climb the monument before it closes for a year long refurbishment. It has been a year since the new joint business with American Airlines and Iberia began, giving customers a choice of 17 London flights a day to New York.
The Middle East is another popular choice this October, with holidays to Dubai offering both shopping and great weather. With a huge selection of luxury five-star resorts as well a range of 3-5 star hotels, Dubai is a great place visit on any budget.
