BA adds LHR to Newcastle services
Published: 13/05/2014 - Filed under: News »
British Airways is adding two weekly services to its London Heathrow to Newcastle route from June 2.
The airline will deploy an A320 on the extra return flights, which will operate on Mondays and Wednesdays.
The move brings the total number of flights on the route to 41 each week.
On Mondays and Wednesdays, outbound service BA1322 departs LHR at 0840 and arrives in Newcastle at 0950, while return flight BA1323 takes off from Newcastle at 1705 and lands at Heathrow at 1815.
Richard Tams, BA's head of United Kingdom and Ireland sales and marketing, said: "Our route between London and Newcastle is at the very heart of our domestic network.
"The number of flights on offer means customers can connect through London to our entire network of destinations, offering great opportunities for both leisure and business travellers."
BA yesterday announced that it will run six additional weekly flights from Heathrow to Vienna from October 26 (see news, May 12).

Very welcome - good to see BA reinforcing their regional feeders to Heathrow.
I use this service frequently to connect on to medium-/long-haul flights with BA out of Heathrow. Without a good domestic feeder, I'd probably take some/all of my custom elsewhere (e.g. AF/KLM).
Whenever I fly to/from Newcastle - early morning, midday, late evening, weekdays or weekend - the plane is always busy so BA must be getting load-factors consistently in the high 80s / low 90s. So additional services or substituting A320s for A319s is sure to be welcomed by all Geordies
