British Airways has teamed up with Uber Boat by Thames Clippers to offer a scenic journey to the airport with 25% off tickets and a complimentary drink on the Thames.

Uber Boat by Thames Clippers is London’s River Bus service, stopping at 24 piers across the capital between Putney Pier in the west and Barking Riverside in the east.

Whether travelling from Putney to Palma or Battersea to Berlin, the offer is available to those flying with BA Cityflyer, British Airways’ subsidiary airline based at London City Airport.

Customers disembarking at Royal Wharf Pier will find themselves just a short DLR ride from London City, making it smooth sailing to the airport complete with up close views of landmarks such as Big Ben, The London Eye, The Shard and The Cutty Sark.

Uber Boat by Thames Clippers offers a relaxing travelling alternative, with customers able to embark and disembark from accessible London locations such as Chelsea Harbour, Battersea Power Station and Embankment. Discounted tickets will be available from £4.20 per person when travelling within the East Zone or £7.69 from central London.

British Airways customers travelling to or from London City Airport with flights on the same day can enjoy the 25% discount when booking in advance via ba.com/londoncity. As an added perk, they can also show their boarding pass at the onboard café bar to receive a complimentary hot drink, ideal for sipping whilst enjoying the views.
