British Airways is set to add four additional frequencies on the Mumbai-London Heathrow route from March 2020 to its existing double daily schedule. This will increase the weekly flights from 14 to 18. The daily flights will be operated by the state-of-the-art 787-9 aircraft offering a four-cabin configuration.
Currently, British Airways operates 49 flights a week from five cities in India, with a double daily from Mumbai and Delhi and a daily service from Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The increase on the Mumbai sector will take British Airways’ weekly schedule from 49 to 56 flights from India to the UK.
Moran Birger, head of sales for Asia Pacific and Middle East, British Airways said, “As the financial capital of the country, Mumbai is a vibrant city full of discerning international travellers who are always on the lookout for great travel experiences and better travel options. With these additional flights we will be offering a convenient choice of three flights a day from Mumbai to connect to our worldwide network of over 200 destinations.
