THE UK'S FLAGSHIP CARRIER PICKS ITS TOP FIVE HOLIDAY HOTSPOTS TO DISCOVER THIS AUTUMN – FROM PICTURESQUE EUROPEAN TOWNS AND BUSTLING CITIES, TO FASHONABLE COUNTRYSIDE RETREATS

Dubai, UAE, September 12, 2017:  As summer swings into autumn, British Airways has named its leading hotspots for a seasonal holiday. From charming European villages and towns, to the largest metropolises in North America, the UK's flagship carrier is launching an end of summer sale with dozens of special fares to make it even easier for travellers to experience an unforgettable autumn in some of the world's most picturesque spots. 

Stretching right across British Airways' global network of 200 destinations, customers flying from the United Arab Emirates can choose any of the airline's four class cabins during the sale when they book between September 12 and October 1 for travel until March 31 2018. 

Whether your penchant is for breath-taking sunset strolls or snapping autumnal colours in some the world's most famous cities, the airline's team of travel experts have offered tips on where to watch the arrival of autumn - no matter where you fly. 

London: 
Catch your first glimpse of the English capital at the start of the season as you descend into London Heathrow, the home of British Airways. As the city gears up for one of the biggest fashion events of the season, London Fashion Week, and outdoor rooftops open for visitors and residents to enjoy the crisp autumn breeze, there are numerous spots in this iconic city to say farewell to the summer. A short walk from the centre of London, watch the leaves of over 4,000 towering trees turn golden yellow as you stroll through 350 acres of stunning urban greenery in Hyde Park.  

If you're looking to step out of the city and follow the fashionable set, escape to celebrity hotspots including Soho Farmhouse, Babington House, the Limewood Hotel and The Ned. Looking for more colour and less flash? Cruise to the Cotswolds or voyage to the Lake District, there's no bustling city vibes, only rolling hills and the cool scents of autumn. 

Fly with British Airways to London this Autumn for as little as KWD 124.

Italy: 
Milan, Rome, Lombardy, Tuscany: Italy bursts with colour in autumn. Tourists have a mix of ancient and modern treasures to explore in some of the world's most romantic cities – from historical sites in Rome, to the fashion boutiques and art stores of Milan. If escaping to the Italian countryside is more your mission, then bask in the change in temperature - and lower prices – in hundreds of towns' autumn festivals of food and grape that pop up across the country. 
There's also hiking in Cinque Terre (Five Towns), road trips to Tuscany, classic sightseeing along the Amalfi Coast, Mediterranean swimming in water that remains warm in the cooler months, and a spread of public parks – from the Giardini Pubblici (Public Gardens) in Milan to the Villa Bardini Gardens in Florence and the Villa Celimontanan, which is walking distance from the famed Colosseum in Rome. 

British Airways offers multiple daily onward connections from London Heathrow to Italy. Enjoy return fares to Italy (via London Heathrow) for as little as KWD 121.

Germany:
The centre of Europe is the perfect place to embrace the change in seasons. A favourite with travellers from the Middle East, Germany has a lot to offer – from cosmopolitan cities, enchanting castles and picturesque countryside, including more than 100 national parks. 

Munich is also a must-visit city on your journey through Bavaria – a true cultural trip. The home of the legendary Oktoberfest may be world-renowned, but there are celebrations across the entire Bavarian region (also known as Franconia) in autumn, where you can meander through quaint towns and cities – try the medieval sites of Nuremberg and Bamberg.

Alternatively, make a beeline for the Black Forest in the country's mountainous Southwest region to experience evergreen woodlands – the catalyst of folk tales and myths galore thanks to the Grimm Brothers. 

Choose your preferred onward connection when you fly from Kuwait to Germany via London Heathrow with British Airways for as little KWD 131. 

American East Coast: 
Pack your best gear and touch down in the Big Apple for Fashion Week, where new trends dominate the conversation and revellers soak up all pomp expected from one of the world' leading fashion capitals. Whether you're in town to catch a seat at a fashion show, looking to wrangle your way to one of the exclusive after-parties, or just taking in the city that has inspired numerous songs and dreams, autumn in New York is unforgettable. 

The change in foliage is a hallmark of a stroll through the world-famous Central Park. From the Carousel to the Conservatory Garden and the Belvedere Castle, there are numerous picture-perfect locations to witness the leaves turn colour and capture ‘no filter needed' memories.

Head Southeast and take in the rich wildlife and forest preserves of the Catskill Mountains, home to thirty-five mountain peaks and the famous Woodstock festival. Under a two-hour drive from New York, travellers can get up-close to nature and enjoy its many hiking trails. The massive Adirondack Park boasts waterfalls and mountains, it's a must for anyone looking to satisfy their adventurous side.

American West Coast:  
From Washington to California, the country's West Coast is made for autumn. It's golden and bronze hues galore across hundreds of forests and natural trails in California. Add a touch of red to the mix with the famous Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, its stunning Bay and the now infamous ‘Karl' - the recently-adopted moniker for the city's legendary fog. Or head to Sausalito, a charming and quaint town, to enjoy the local clam chowder while you take in the serene bay.

Travellers can even go slightly inland to Colorado to visit the soon-to-be snow-covered mountains of Colorado. In this case of west, it's southwest is best for autumn. Named after a tree that dominates and defines the entire town, Aspen never fails to impress. 

Passengers flying from the Middle East enjoy numerous daily connections to over 25 destinations across North America and will enjoy an enhanced sleep and catering proposition as British Airways' 400-million-pound investment in its Club World cabins is rolled out across the airline's long haul services. 
Fly to the US with special fares on offer across North America starting from as little as KWD 219 to New York, KWD 312 to San Francisco.
