British Airways is celebrating the not-yet-announced reopening of travel from the United States to the United Kingdom and the European continent with a sale on transatlantic fares.

The carrier is offering return fares (round-trip, as they are known in the States) for as low as $615, including all taxes and fees, on flights between September 5 and October 14. Flights must be booked by July 14.

“After more than a year of lockdowns and restrictions, and as we look forward to the safe reopening of transatlantic travel, this is a perfect opportunity for our customers to start planning a well-deserved getaway to see loved ones overseas or discover new destinations in Europe,” said Marie Hilditch, the airline’s head of sales in North America in a statement.

The airline is also offering a variety of packages including round-trip flights from New York with five nights at a four-star rated hotel in London for $799 for travel between October 15 and November 14, and it is also offering deals on fares for flights from November 1 through December 14 and again from January 11, 2022 through February 28.

Finally BA is also discounting business-class fares and allowing travelers to pay for the ticket over time.
