Yuletide: UBA, British Airways Partner on Ticket Discount


Posted by Justina Okpanku
One of Africa’s largest banks, United Bank for Africa (UBA) is cooperating with British Airways to offer its card holders who purchase tickets a discount up from 10 to 15 per cent. The move is expected to excite customers who usually paid a premium for tickets during the festive periods. Customers would be able to access over 200 destinations worldwide. British Airways General Manager, Kola Olayinka who spoke at the memorandum signing in Lagos, Tuesday said the promo was to give value to the travelling public.
“It is all about the customers at the end of the day. If we can offer one or two discounts here and there and people are able to travel more and in doing that, they use their UBA card,” he said.

Olayinka also said the promo would run for one year and could be reviewed afterwards. “Hopefully in the next one year we would be running this and we would look at how well it has worked and then see if to move it forward or make it better,” he said.

General Manager, Corporate Banking, Mr. Muyiwa Akinyemi said: “The access to enjoy this discount is to have a UBA card. So you can log on the platform to get this discount between of 10 to 15 per cent. It cuts across each class – that is Economy, Business Clas and First Class.”
