British Airways will almost double its London Heathrow to Larnaca operation this summer.
From March 29, the national airline will increase the number of flights on the route from seven to 13 weekly.
BA currently flies a B767 daily between the two airports — outbound service BA662 departs Heathrow at 1145 and arrives at Larnaca at 1815, while return service BA663 leaves Larnaca at 1925 and lands at Heathrow at 2210.
On March 29, the airline will start operating flights BA664 and BA665 six times weekly, on every day except for Saturdays, reports airlineroute.net. BA will deploy an A320 on the route.
BA664 will take-off from LHR at 0710 and land at Larnaca at 1400, except on Wednesdays when it will land five minutes earlier at 1355. Return flight BA665 will depart Larnaca at 1450 and arrive back at Heathrow at 1725.
The increase means BA will fill the gap left by the demise of Cyprus Airways (see news, January 12).
