A couple of days ago, British Airways announced a number of new leisure routes from Heathrow.
The new services are:
Corfu (CFU) – 4 flights per week
Kos (KGS) – 2 flights per week
Olbia, Sardinia (OLB) – 2 flights per week (see photo)
Split (SPU) – 2 flights per week
All four routes will start in the first week of May and run until late September.
As usual, it will be a two-class service. All flights will operate from Terminal 5 even though British Airways normally sneaks leisure routes (which don’t have much connecting traffic) into Terminal 3.
Tickets are already available on ba.com.
