British Airways adds African flights

03 September 2013, 16:38 Fin24

Johannesburg - British Airways has announced that it is growing its African frequencies and improving connectivity through London Heathrow.

In West Africa it will increase its daily services to Ghana by three a week from October 27 using Boeing 767s to complement the existing Boeing 777 flights.

This will bring the total number of weekly services up to 10. It will also add a fourth weekly service to Sierra Leone and Liberia.

In East Africa it will add an additional frequency to Uganda to offer four weekly flights. The schedule will be amended to offer better connections to other international services though Terminal 5.

North African services have been bolstered by a fourth weekly flight to Tripoli.

South African customers are already able to make bookings for the A380, the airline’s largest and most modern aircraft, which begins flying to Johannesburg on February 12.

This is only the third A380 route to be announced after Los Angeles and Hong Kong.
