British Airways will offer a free chauffeur service for its first class customers flying out of Sydney from July 1.
Passengers travelling on BA15 and BA16 will have a Jaguar shuttle them in style to and from Sydney International Airport, provided their reservation has been sold and ticketed in Australia – the deal doesn't apply to Brits heading to the colonies.
The free service covers a 50km radius from Sydney International Airport, with an additional $5/km charge for travel beyond that boundary.
There are a few other caveats: you'll need to reserve your driver at least 48 hours prior to departure, and the service is restricted to travel ticketed with an A or F booking code.
Waitlists, 'Z-code' reservations, award redemption bookings, complimentary upgrades and travel agent discount tickets don't make the cut.
British Airways joins Qantas, Emirates and Etihad in offering a chauffeur service for Sydney-siders – although unlike those three airlines, which extend the free ride offer to business class, BA's limo is available only for first class.
Also on July 1st, Qantas will extend its Chauffeur Drive service to flights between Australia and Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, Santiago and Johannesburg, in addition to the current destinations of London and Dubai.
