British Airways has announced an increase in flights to both Santiago, Chile and Washington DC this winter.
From October 28 the airline will boost the number of flights to Santiago from four-per-week to five and will be adding three flights a week to its Washington Dulles schedule.
An additional three flights a week will be added to the current two-a-day schedule to the US capital from October 29. There will be three daily flights on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Flights to Santiago currently operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and the additional service will leave on Sundays. All flights are served by the four-cabin Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
Sean Doyle, Director of Network and Alliances, said: “We are pleased to be offering our customers an even better flight timetable this winter. Our direct service to Santiago launched in January 2017 and has since proved incredibly popular with a whole range of flyers; from leisure travellers looking for adventure, exploration and experiences, to business travellers working in the region.”
“The additional Washington flights reconfirm our commitment to offering our customers even more choice between the UK and the US, and the launch of our new Nashville service on May 4 will bring the number of cities we serve direct in the US up to 26.”
The direct flight between London and Chile is British Airways’ lengthiest long-haul route, taking 14 hours 40 minutes.
