British Airways is to convert its flights to Doha and Muscat to direct services from October 30.
The carrier currently offers a one-stop service to Doha via Bahrain, and to Muscat via Abu Dhabi.
The new direct services will operate daily from Heathrow T5 to Doha, and five times-weekly to Muscat. In both cases the direct flights will cut journey times by around two hours.
Flights to Doha and Muscat will be served with a B777.
The full timetable for the new direct services can be seen below.
Oman Air recently added a second daily service to its Heathrow-Muscat route (see news February 25).
To celebrate the new direct services BA is offering return fares between London and the four destinations of Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Doha and Muscat for £349 return in World Traveller, and £599 in World Traveller Plus.
These fares are available for bookings made by May 17, for travel between October 30 and December 8, 2016 and between January 9 and March 21, 2017.
