British Airways has confirmed that it will be resuming its non-stop flights between Heathrow Airport, London and the Armstrong International Airport. The airline will resume the concerned flights starting December 9, 2021. British Airways will initially go with three flights every week. The decision for resuming the non-stop flights in this route is the profits that it brought the airline. British Airways said that it had seen a huge demand for travel in the concerned route in 2017. But due to the COVID-19 restrictions imposed around the globe, even British Airways had to stop this profitable route 20 odd months back.
British Airways to Add More US Destinations to Schedule
British Airways has now connected New Orleans with one of the largest hubs of Europe – London. But the airline isn’t going to stop here. British Airways is looking to add more US destinations to its operations in the coming months. The US will also allow completely vaccinated individuals to enter the country from November 2018.
Note that the announcement from British Airways is firm, but the launch date of the said flights are subject to change. Neil Chernoff, British Airways director of network and alliances, said, “This is an exciting time for British Airways and our customers as we see borders re-opening.”
Chernoff added, “With welcome news from the US, we are dramatically increasing flights and bringing home some of our A380s to give our customers as many options as possible. Elsewhere across our network, we are also adding additional services to destinations all over the world to ensure our customers can take advantage of a much-needed holiday.”
With time, British Airways should start connecting with more international destinations. As the number of people vaccinated increases, the demand for airline travel will also increase.
