BA increases Sao Paulo flights from September 2014

As new aircraft continue to arrive, British Airways has announced an increase in frequency to Sao Paulo, a popular long-haul option.

From 7 September 2014, there will be an additional three flights per week.  These will all be day flights, leaving at 10.20am on a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday (moving to Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 26th October).

Sao Paulo

The existing daily overnight flight will continue, giving a total of 10 flights per week.

All services will be 747 flights, which is the best way to fly in Club World because of the small upstairs cabin of 16 Club World seats.

Seats are now available for booking.  Hopefully this additional capacity will lead to greater Avios availability on the route.

    Thanks, I might be able to spend some miles now! Just a small point, there are 20 seats upstairs on a 747.

  2. Are you sure it’s only from September 2014? I’ve read that it was from June 2014, which makes absolute sense since the World Cup takes place in Brazil in Jun-Jul.
    I’ve got this:
