British Airways is to launch flights to Monrovia this winter, its 19th African destination.
The three times-weekly service to the Liberian capital will commence on November 5, with flights routing via Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Flights will operate out of Heathrow Terminal 5, and note that between December 10 and February 4 the frequency will be reduced to twice-weekly.
The service will be operated by a three-class B767 offering World Traveller, World Traveller Plus and Club World seating.
Flights will depart Heathrow on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, returning on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
There are currently no direct flights between the UK and Monrovia – Brussels Airlines offers three flights per week, two of which route via Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, and Air France flies twice-weekly from Paris via Conakry in Guinea.
