British Airways is extending the number of routes operated by its new A380 and 787 Dreamliner aircraft and increasing frequencies.
BA now has three Airbus A380s and four Boeing 787s on its fleet and the arrival of these new aircraft means the A380 will begin its next services to Washington from 1 September. The aircraft is already flying to Los Angeles and Hong Kong and will start services to Johannesburg in February.
The 787s will launch services to Hyderabad from 30 March, Chengdu from 5 May, Philadelphia from 5 June and Calgary from 5 July.
In other good news for Chengdu (a destination British Airways only launched services to in September) the airline will increase the number of flights to the city from three to five a week from 5 May.
From 6 May, Tokyo Haneda will move from five-a-week to daily flights and these flights will also be re-timed to a more convenient 8.50am departure from Haneda.
Mexico City will also benefit from an increase from five to six services a week starting 27 April and Cape Town will gain an extra three Boeing 777-200ER flights a week through South Africa’s cooler winter season (the Northern Hemisphere’s summer). www.britishairways.com
