Student and youth travel company STA Travel will sell 98 seats from the UK to Bangkok for just £49 next Thursday, April 28.

It will have 49 seats available at this fare from London and 49 available from Birmingham.

The fares will only be on sale at STA Travel stores in London Victoria and Birmingham's Corporation Street, starting at 9am on Thursday. There will be no option to buy over the phone or online.

Londoners queue through hail and snow for TWO nights to bag £49 flights to Thailand

Hopeful travellers queue outside the shop in Victoria Nigel Howard

Eager Londoners today told how they braved wind, hail and snow for two nights to secure bargain basement flights to Thailand.

STA travel offered return flights to Bangkok for only £49 to 49 customers on a first-come first-served basis.

It prompted scores of people from the capital armed with tents and umbrellas camped outside the travel store near Victoria Station.

More than 70 people were queuing in the small hours of this morning in the hope of securing the deal offered to the first 49 people through the doors at 9am this morning.

Wahid Khan, 30, made sure he was first in the queue after promising his girlfriend a luxury holiday after graduation.

The pair arrived at 11am on Tuesday morning to ensure they did not miss out.

The photo journalism student from Elephant and Castle said she was happy to go through their 46 hour ordeal to secure their bargain flights.

She said: “I’m just happy we were here first. I was going to pay for flights at the normal price when we saw this and said ‘come on, let’s go down there and camp’.

“We thought we’d get here the night before but we read about the New Zealand offer last year where there were people camping then we though ok, let’s take this seriously.
