British Airways has announced further changes to its Summer 2018 schedule from Heathrow.
It includes two new routes. This is what has changed:
Heathrow to Las Palmas – a new Saturday service, from 31st March 2018
Heathrow to Tenerife – a new Saturday service, from 31st March 2018
Both of these routes are already operating over Winter 2017 but it is now confirmed that they will continue into the new timetable.
Malaga increased from 2 to 8 per week
Reykjavik increased from 4 to 7 per week (photo above)
Faro increased from 2 to 4 per week
Pisa increased from 9 to 10 per week
Berlin increased from 45 to 46 per week
Warsaw increased from 14 to 18 per week
Barcelona cut from 53 to 49 per week
As always, these new routes, and the extra flights on existing routes, are bookable NOW with Avios. You should still find at least 2 Club Europe and 4 Euro Traveller seats available on each flight, as tickets only sent on sale yesterday.
You can book at ba.com here.
