British Airways launches new flights to Mediterranean

More Mediterranean sunshine will be on the cards for travellers flying with British Airways next summer when the airline launches four new routes from Heathrow.

From 2015 May 1st, holiday-makers will be able to wing their way to the sun in Olbia in Sardinia, Kos and Corfu in Greece and Split in Croatia.

The new routes follow hot on the heels of last week’s announcement that the airline will also start flying from Gatwick to Seville in Spain, Las Palmas in Gran Canaria and Funchal in Madeira.

Lynne Embleton, British Airways’ director of strategy, said: “It’s great to be able to offer an increasing number of Mediterranean destinations for customers flying from Heathrow for that weekend break in the sun or for longer holidays.

“We know these new short haul routes are going to prove very popular after launching services to Mykonos and Santorini earlier in the year and give our customers an even greater choice of places to get away from it all.”


Flights to all four new destinations will be on British Airways’ fleet of Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft from Heathrow.

The airline is also installing elegant new cabins in 95 of its Airbus short haul fleet, which includes slim charcoal grey leather seats, contemporary mood lighting and a silver British Airways speedmarque on the front wall.
