BA bolsters leisure destinations from Heathrow

A string of new European routes are being started by British Airways from Heathrow for next summer.

Seven new leisure destinations will be served from the airline’s main London hub.

They include Pula in Croatia which will be served twice a week from July 1.

Brindisi in Italy and Zante in Greece also gain two flights a week from June 3.

Twice weekly flights will serve the French cities of Montpelier and Nantes from May 3 and March 28 respectively.

Tallinn in Estonia will gain two flights a week from March 28 together with Murcia in Spain.

The new short-haul routes join already the already announced flights to New Orleans from March 27 and Santiago in Chile from January 4.

However, a service to Chengdu in China is being dropped.

BA is also introducing flights from Gatwick to Oakland for San Francisco four days a week from March 28.

The move will pitch BA head to head with Norwegian on the route to the US west coast – its first to California from Gatwick.

One-way fares start at £189 on the service which will be flown by a Boeing 777-200ER.

Oakland airport is a 30 minute train ride from San Francisco or 34 minutes drive.
