Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 aprile 2013

London, PRNewswire Take advantage of warm temperatures in the Middle East and North Africa with tempting holiday offers from the long haul specialist. With spring well underway, sun-starved Brits are still awaiting the first signs of the changing season as wintery weather continues to dominate in the UK. After a long winter punctuated by several snow flurries that brought the nation to a halt, chilly travellers can be forgiven for wanting to get away from the freezing conditions for a few days. With this in mind, Hayes and Jarvis are pleased to reveal a selection of tempting offers on mid-haul holidays to Dubai, Egypt and Abu Dhabi, perfect for beating those winter blues. Not only are these destinations virtually guaranteed to enjoy great weather, they are, at most, just a seven hour flight from the UK, meaning a swift transition from rain and bitter wind, to balmy temperatures and cocktails by the pool or beach. Egypt is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations and is renowned for its wealth of historical treasures just waiting to be explored. From ancient ruins in Luxor to the pyramids and the river Nile, culture vultures are spoiled for choice here. Egypt is equally adept however as a luxury holiday location and the Ritz-Carlton in Sharm El Sheikh exemplifies five star treatment with five restaurants, three bars, five pools, sports facilities and a wellness centre. Stay here with Hayes and Jarvis for seven nights on a bed and breakfast basis from just £499 per person, saving up to £730 per couple. This offer includes a 50% accommodation discount. Flights depart on 21 April 2013 from Manchester. Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, arguably the Middle East’s most popular destination with holiday makers, and although it may have been overshadowed by its sister city Dubai until recently, Abu Dhabi has become more than a worthy rival to the UAE’s second city. Beautiful Gulf Coast beaches give way to a pristine cityscape that fuses traditional souks with ultra modern malls. Stay here for seven nights at the Beach Rotana Hotel and Towers on a bed and breakfast basis from just £749 per person, saving up to £276 per couple. Flights depart on 16 May 2013 from London Heathrow.
Dubai needs little introduction, this glistening metropolis rising from the desert offers the best of both city living and beach culture. Explore the vast malls, water parks and marvel at the Burj Khalifa, or just relax on the beach and soak up some sun. The Ocean View Hotel makes for a great base, and Hayes and Jarvis are delighted to offer complimentary half board here on a three night stay from just £699 per person, saving up to £394 per couple. Flights depart from London Gatwick on 22 April 2013.

Harmondsworth, England (PRNewswire). A team of ten British Airways cabin crew from Gatwick will walk with the fastest man in the world later this month for a cause that is close to all their hearts.The crew of BA2263 will operate a flight from London Gatwick to Kingston, Jamaica and then join world champion and current Olympic champion sprinter Usain Bolt for the 5.6km Sigma Walkathon in aid of the Chain of Hope charity.British Airways has a long-standing partnership with Chain of Hope, a charity set up by the eminent heart surgeon Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, who plans to establish a brand new cardiac centre at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in Kingston.The 10 cabin crew champions, Kayti Roberts, Suzi Ball, Christina Smith, Kerryanne Meehan, Camilla Broglia, Michelle Oakes, Emma Oliver, Sarah Hill, Robert Brock and Louise Speakman, also plan to visit the hospital during their three-day stay in Kingston. Some of them have visited previously and have sat in on cardiac surgery procedures on children with life-threatening heart diseases.
The UK charity sends out medical teams to treat children in their own country, setting up training programmes for local surgeons and medical staff. But the number of operations that can be performed is limited by the number of Intensive Care Unit beds available. The new cardiac centre will house 10 new beds, an operating theatre and a catheter laboratory and allow doctors to help many more children in need of life saving surgery. Kayti Roberts from Haywards Heath is one of the crew members making a return visit to the hospital. She said: “I was fortunate enough to sit in on open heart surgery on a young child and it was a life changing experience.
Up to 500 children are born with congenital heart disease in Jamaica every year. Of these, half require medical or surgical intervention or face a premature death. The current waiting list for cardiac surgery at the Bustamante Hospital is at least 150 children, with 100 new patients added to the list annually.
British Airways plc offers a wide range of worldwide destinations, including holidays in Dubai, flights to Mumbai, Maldives holidays, flights to Berlin and holidays in Jamaica, as well as hotels, flights, car rental with Avis and experiences. Customers can save time and money with when booking ATOL protected holiday packages, ATOL number is 5985. Passengers are offered added peace of mind to their holiday plans and the security of travelling with British Airways.
