New Services Introduced To Skopje And Salzburg

8th Sep 1999

London, 8 September, 1999: British Airways will begin flights from London to Skopje and Salzburg, beginning in October .

The twice weekly service to Skopje, will begin on October 4 and will increase to three times a week from November.

The new service to Skopje is the first time a British airline has introduced scheduled services to the Macedonian capital. The service will help aid the regeneration of the region and cater for Skopje`s growth as an important business market in the Balkans.

Flights to the Austrian city of Salzburg will operate four times a week from November. It is anticipated that demand for this service should be strong given Salzburg`s position as a growing business destination in Europe.

From 31 October, British Airways will also begin a new codeshare agreement with the Swiss carrier Crossair on its Basle service. As a result there will be three daily flights from Heathrow to Basle all of which will be operated by Crossair.


Other changes to British Airways` schedule for the winter season include a new three times daily service to Hanover from Gatwick, operated by the carrier`s franchise partner, City Flyer Express, which will replace the existing twice daily mainline service from Heathrow. There will also be additional services to Brussels, Luxembourg, Madrid, Cologne and Stuttgart.
