Low fares are commonplace on the London to New York route thanks to heavy competition. But, fares for less than £300 on a full-service airline like British Airways isn’t all so common. Right now, BA is offering return fares from £280 from January to May 2020, excluding school holidays.

Some of the cheap fares include British Airways’ day flight across the Atlantic, which is a great way to reduce the effects of the jet-lag.

These fares are British Airways’ lowest, which mean that checking in a bag and selecting your seat will cost you extra. We have several tips for packing that might be useful if you’re planning on going to New York for a long weekend with only hand luggage.

To book, head to Google Flights and set the departure airport as Heathrow (LHR) and the arrival airport as New York (JFK). Next, set the airline to British Airways and scroll through the calendar to find the cheapest dates to fly, which are highlighted in green. Once you’ve got the flights you want, head to the British Airways website to make sure you earn your Avios and are ATOL protected.
