British Airways is to move its Heathrow-Singapore-Sydney services to T5 from the end of March, and will also roster its new B777-300ER aircraft onto the route from this date.
The carrier says the changes ”confirm British Airways’ commitment to Australia”, following the news that Qantas will end it joint business agreement with BA, and strike up a new partnership with Emirates (see online news September 6).
BA’s Sydney flights currently depart from Terminal 3 using B747-400 aircraft, but will move to Terminal 5 from March 31, from where the majority of the carrier’s flights already operate.
The airline’s new B777-300ER aircraft feature a four-class World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World and First layout, with BA’s latest in-flight entertainment systems which provide 50 per cent more movies and double the range of TV and music options.
