British Airways has added two new weekly flights to Sao Paulo. It has not been officially announced yet as far as I know but the flights are available for booking.
As usual, the guaranteed two Club World seats and four World Traveller economy seats are available for Avios redemptions on the new services. If you have previously tried to get Avios seats to Sao Paulo and not found availability, look again today.
The new flights start on 1st November:
Heathrow to Sao Paulo
Thursday – BA 241 – departs 18.40, arrives 04.50 Friday
Sunday – BA 241 – departs 19.05, arrives 05.15 Monday
Sao Paulo to Heathrow
Monday – BA240 – departs 16.20, arrives 06.15 Tuesday
Friday – BA 240 – departs 16.20, arrives 06.15 Saturday
These new services will use a Boeing 787-9, if BA still has any in working order.
The existing daily service on a Boeing 777 will continue to be available. You may want to consider swapping any existing redemption to the new 787 service as it is a far more attractive option in Club World or First Class.
