British Airways will be increasing the number of Heathrow flights to Warsaw, Rome and Istanbul, as of October 25, but will be cutting back on Brussels, Paris, Nice and Berlin services.
The Heathrow to Warsaw route will see an extra daily flight, which will arrive at Heathrow at 0925, allowing customers to connect through T5 onto the long-haul route network. Flights from Heathrow to Istanbul will also increase by one a day.
Rome-bound flights from Heathrow will increase from five to six a day, but Gatwick airport will see a cut on its Rome service from two flights to only one a day.
Heathrow will also see cuts, as the Brussels service will drop from seven to six flights a day, Paris (Charles de Gaulle) from ten to nine, Nice and Berlin from six to five, and Edinburgh from 11 to ten.
BA also announced it would be increasing flights this winter from Heathrow to Barcelona and Prague, but flights from Gatwick to destinations including Malta, Krakow and Madrid are being dropped (see online news June 25).
