British Airways in expansion mood

SOUTH AMERICA is a winner with what is probably the most aggressive British Airways long haul expansion programme for some years.  Buenos Aires is to get non-stop services from London at the start the summer season 2011.  BA will operate daily to the lively capital of Argentina by-passing Sao Paulo and allowing a full allocation of seats to what is Brazil’s commercial hub.  Rio de Janeiro benefited last year with a three times per week non-stop service which continues.  On the other side of the world BA is to return to Tokyo Haneda gaining from the airport’s new runway and opening up for international flights.  The five times a week service will begin on 19 February.  The route will be served by a Boeing 777, with a four-class configuration.  The airline’s daily service to Tokyo Narita airport continues.  BA says the route is performing well and operating from two airports in Tokyo provides customers with greater flexibility. www.ba.com
