This summer, they plan to operate more than 300 flights per week to destinations to North America in partnership with American Airlines, including up to 15 daily flights from London to New York. In addition, British Airways has recently resumed short haul European flights from London Gatwick, where customers can fly to over 30 destinations including Alicante, Faro, Rhodes and Venice.
British Airways are continuing to roll out the new Club Suite across their long-haul fleet. All their Airbus A350’s and Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner’s arrive fitted with the new seat and are nearing completion of retrofitting Heathrow-based 777 fleet with the award-winning product. The Club Suite offers direct aisle access with a privacy door, a larger 79” lie-flat bed, a 17” high resolution in-flight entertainment screen and offers more than 40% more storage space than our existing seat.
Sustainability continues to be a strategic focus area for British Airways. They were the first airline in the world to start using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) produced on a commercial scale in the UK, and earlier this year, operated a landmark flight using 35% SAF, which was a huge step in reaching their target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
