British Airways’ head of sales, Asia Pacific Noella Ferns said: “Following months of uncertainty caused by the global lockdown, we are delighted to be offering direct flights between Singapore and the UK. We realise that going to university is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we would love for the students to start this adventure with us. Packing for school can be stressful for many students (and their parents!) as there is just so much they wish to bring with them. To help ease this issue, we are proud to continue with the tradition of supporting our students with a more generous baggage allowance.”

Students will be asked to check-in online, download their boarding pass and, where possible self-scan their boarding passes at the departure gate.
