BA gears up for new short-haul Heathrow services

3 Dec 2012 by BusinessTraveller

British Airways will launch three new short-haul services from Heathrow airport this weekend.

The flights to Zagreb, Rotterdam and Leeds Bradford launch on Sunday December 9 using Airbus A319 aircraft, with daily services to the Croatian capital, three flights per day to the Dutch port city, and four daily flights to Leeds Bradford airport.

The new routes follow the launch of BA’s new long-haul flights to Seoul on December 2 (see online news May 3).

Business Traveller will be attending a BA press trip to Seoul next week, and will report on the launch of the service in due course.

The new routes have been made possible as a result of slots freed up by BA's parent company IAG's purchase of Bmi earlier this year (see online news May 11).
