BA boosts Brazil flights
BA will still use the three class B777 and gives customers a choice of travel from World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premier economy) and the airline’s fully flat beds in Club World (business class).
Neil Cottrell, British Airways’ head of network planning, said: “We are experiencing a real increase in demand for Rio and by doubling the number of departures, we are able to offer our customers more choice and greater availability. Brazil is also experiencing strong economic growth and this capacity increase is a great opportunity for British Airways to be part of that growth.”
Monday is the only vacant day that a flight to Rio will not depart, the timing of departure remains at 12:15 and a landing time of 21:55 local time in Rio.
British Airways and Iberia recently announced that they would immediate start code sharing on a new tranche of one another’s flights. Including BA putting its code on Iberia flights from Madrid to San Jose (Costa Rica) and Panama City and Iberia adding its code to BA’s Bahrain, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait and Muscat services.
Other codes that Iberia has added include British Airways’ services to Cape Town and both airlines are now sharing their Johannesburg flights. Iberia’s flights to Havana also started carrying the BA code from April 15th.
