BRITISH AIRWAYS LAUNCHES FLIGHTS TO COLOGNE
The highlight of the Cologne calendar is the six-day street carnival known as “Crazy Days”. Normal life is suspended in Cologne as over one million revellers take to the streets for the largest carnival in Europe which sees the city celebrate in a colourful spectacle of eclectic costumes, dancing, sequins, parades and parties.
During the winter season customers will be able to fly direct for the first time with British Airways, with flights available on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays; offering holidaymakers the perfect excuse to visit one of the seven Christmas markets.
Adam Carson, British Airways’ Managing Director of Gatwick, said: “Cologne adds another exciting destination to our Gatwick network and is perfect for a winter break. Cologne is becoming increasingly popular due to being a cultural hub and is a living textbook on art, history and architecture.” Enter before November 16, 2018 to be in with a chance of winning.
