Following the welcome news that a significant number of countries have been removed from the UK Government’s red list, British Airways is resuming services and increasing frequencies to a number of destinations.
Among these destinations, British Airways is set to ramp up services to popular winter sun destination South Africa, with daily services to Johannesburg expected by mid-December.
The airline will also restart services to Cape Town, offering 3X-weekly flights in November, before moving to a double daily service in December.
In addition, between 31, October 2021 and 10 December 2021, British Airways will continue to operate 777-200ER/-300ER on London Heathrow – Johannesburg route. The airline is also planning to introduce the A350-1000XWB service on this route scheduled from 09DEC21 at earliest
The news of frequency increases and additions to its flight schedule, follows an announcement from British Airways earlier in the week that is planning on operating its biggest schedule since March 2020.
