British Airways has said it will no longer offer Heathrow flights to the Sri Lankan capital Colombo from next year. The carrier currently flies to the city via Male in the Maldives. This service will continue over the winter but will end on 28 March. Flights to Male only will then resume for winter 2015. SriLankan Airlines, which recently joined the oneworld alliance, also operates the route. This is the opposite of Kuala Lumpur where BA is set to compete with Malaysia Airlines. (See BTN 21 September)
At Gatwick BA has announced three new routes to its 2015 schedule. Seville (Spain), Funchal (Madeira) and Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) will be introduced from March 2015.
