Travellers flying back to Britain may soon be able to buy airfares to travel to Heathrow.

Airfares for returning travellers can now be booked via the UK’s website for a limited time, meaning that they can pay for their return flight to Heathrove, which has been used as a base since the 1970s.

The site was launched on Monday, as the Government looks to attract overseas visitors for next year’s UK Autumn Festival.

“The UK is home to some of the most diverse and inspiring people and cultures on the planet,” a spokeswoman for Heathrow said.

She added: “It is now a good time to welcome visitors from across the globe, particularly from the Middle East, Asia and Europe.”

The Government said that it would encourage travellers to visit Heathrow to see the airport, which was established in 1971.

It also promised to provide information and support to travellers returning to the United Kingdom, including to ensure they are aware of their rights and obligations, and help them to get to the airport safely.
