British Airways has announced its five most popular destinations for travellers from the Middle East. London features prominently in the list, followed by New York, Washington, Toronto and Houston round out the top five. The list highlights connections Middle Eastern travellers have with North America, where they travel not just for business or holiday, but to see family and friends, and even education.
Over the next five years, British Airways will be investing more than £5bn in new aircraft, smarter cabins, lounges and new technologies in the air and on ground. The airline has invested £100m in the new First cabin that is now fitted on more than 75% of its long-haul fleet.
