Passenger decline seen at BA

British Airways has seen a decline in the number of passengers using its services during September, with numbers 3.7 per cent down when compared to the same month during 2008.

However, those who did fly with the carrier during September may be pleased they did, as the company achieved its highest level of punctuality since January 1994.

In total, more than 87 per cent of its flights left either early or on time.

Meanwhile, low-cost carrier easyJet saw a rise in the number of people flying during September, with a total of 4,422,021 passengers jetting off with the airline.

This is up 5.3 per cent when compared to last year.

While Brits may still be choosing to fly with lower cost airlines in a bid to save money due to the economic downturn, cutting back on travel insurance cover to save cash could prove more costly in the long run.

Without travel insurance, people could be hit by costs of thousands should they need medical treatment while overseas.
