The amazing Walker Crisps £1.99 flight deals to New Orleans, Bangkok and Bologna

The amazing £1.99 flight deals to New Orleans, Bangkok and Bologna (and the only catch is that the offer is open for a VERY limited time)

  • The bargain flight prices to three destinations come courtesy of Walker Crisps 
  • It found half of millennials say a lack of money is stopping them from travelling
  • In addition, one in 10 (12 per cent) said they had never travelled outside of the UK

It sounds too good to be true.

But flights to Bangkok, New Orleans and Bologna are being offered for just £1.99.

And there’s no catch – only that they are on offer for a very limited time and accommodation isn’t included.   

One hundred flights to three destinations around the world are being offered for just £1.99

The amazing prices come courtesy of Walkers Crisps, which is offering the flights in conjunction with the launch of two brand new ‘globally inspired’ flavours of Walkers Sensations snacks – Balsamic Vinegar & Caramelised Onion (Bologna) and Hickory Smoked Cheddar & Crispy Bacon (New Orleans) – and a survey it commissioned.

The research shows that over half (55 per cent) of millennials (16-35-year-olds) claim that a lack of money is one of the main factors stopping them from travelling as much as they’d like to.

Of the 1,500 people aged 16-35 questioned, more than three quarters (79 per cent) would rather spend the money they do have on unique experiences, such as travelling, over saving up to buy a home or car.

And although keen to travel, one in 10 (12 per cent) said they had never travelled outside of the UK, with a third (31 per cent) of those claiming they felt trapped by their inability to do so.

To be in with a chance of getting one of the 100 select flights, people must visit between 7-8pm on certain dates and register their details, with a different destination on sale for an hour each week.

After the hour is up, people will be contacted and told if they have been selected, with people chosen at random. 

The deal will start with 50 £1.99 flights on offer to Bologna today (Thursday, June 27), followed by 25 flights to Bangkok on Thursday, July 4, and 25 to New Orleans on Thursday, July 11. All proceeds will be donated to charity.

The £1.99 flights leave from London airports and come inclusive with checked baggage.

However, travellers are responsible for their own accommodation, sustenance and entertainment while at the destination.

For those who don’t get the chance to buy a £1.99 flight, all is not lost, as entrants will still be able to access cheap discounted flights worldwide with a free one-month Premium trial to Jack’s Flight Club – the largest cheap flights members club in the UK and Europe. 

Sensations Global Travel will also come to life with a physical London Soho location, with agents staffed outside the pop-up until Friday, June 28, handing out samples of the new flavours to lucky passers-by, as well as more information on the activity. 

Alison Kirk, brand manager of Walkers Sensations, said: ‘At Sensations our snacks are inspired by flavours and recipes we’ve discovered from around the world. 

‘Nearly half of the people questioned said that they want to travel to try new and exciting food, so the launch of Sensations Global Travel aims to help people experience the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of the delicious destinations Sensations are inspired by.

‘For those who manage to get their hands on one of the 100 flights, we hope that by reducing the price down to the cost of a packet of crisps, we’re able to unlock an exciting feast for the senses, giving them a chance to explore new and far-flung places.’
