British Airways customers will soon be able to experience uninterrupted, direct flights to Doha and Muscat from Heathrow Terminal 5. Previously, customers flying to the Middle Eastern cities had to stop off in Bahrain en route Doha and Abu Dhabi en route to Muscat, but from October 30, both services will fly direct, reducing the journey time to both cities by approximately two hours.
British Airways will operate daily flights between Heathrow and Abu Dhabi, Doha and Bahrain and a five-per-week service between Heathrow and Muscat.
Customers travelling to Abu Dhabi will be able to fly in the airline’s brand new 787-9 Dreamliner. The 787-9 includes a new First cabin which has just eight seats in comparison to the 14 seats available on other British Airways long-haul aircraft, giving even more exclusivity and privacy to customers.
To celebrate British Airways has sale fares on offer until May 17 with return fares between London and the four cities starting from £349 in World Traveller and £599 in World Traveller Plus. The sale runs until May 17, 2016 and is valid for travel between October 30 and December 8, 2016 and January 9 and March 21, 2017.
