Peter Buecking, one

world Visit Europe ticket has got to be the best way for travellers to Europe to tour around Europe and North Africa. Many airlines offer their own European airpass - but these virtually always require passengers to travel back to the airline's home base each time before flying on to their next destination. Our new one
world Europe pass enables people for the first time to switch across the networks of Aer Lingus, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia and their affiliates."
