British Airways seems to have added a new route between Heathrow and Mauritius today.
This is a route which normally goes from Gatwick – I have it booked for next May – which is how we can tell they are additional services.
Fancy Christmas in Mauritius? You can book it (as of 8pm Thursday).
Here is a SeatSpy screenshot from 8pm today showing the dates with FOUR Club World seats available. As you can see, there is a lot.
There is also excellent availability on the new services in World Traveller Plus and, of course, Economy but I have not shown that.
Outbound is to the left, return to the right:
There is also a First Class cabin, but no Avios seats ….
The outbound is 9pm (arr 12.55) with the return leaving Mauritius at 22.10, arriving at 06.20.
