The flights will depart from Bermuda from the new airport terminal scheduled to open in December 2020 at 20:10, landing at London Heathrow at 06:55 the next day. The route will be operated by a Boeing 777-200, which will soon feature the airline’s new Club Suite offering direct-aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and luxurious flat-bed seats in a 1-2-1 configuration.
“We are enthusiastic about this London airport shift and have already begun talks with British Airways and local hotel partners to create special consumer offers to launch the Heathrow service next year,” said Bermuda Tourism Authority Interim CEO Glenn Jones. “While the city hasn’t changed, we treat this development like an entirely new route because we believe the whole European travel landscape changes now in a positive way.”
“Additionally, our longstanding 85-year plus partnership connecting BA with Bermuda will continue to benefit international business and tourism and as a result of this pivotal decision will aid in the island’s pandemic recovery,” adds Jones.
BA’s Director of Network and Alliances, Neil Chernoff, said: “We are delighted to launch flights from London Heathrow to Bermuda and we look forward to welcoming customers to experience our world class facilities at Terminal 5. Whether our customers are travelling on business, visiting friends and family or taking a European holiday, London Heathrow is the UK’s largest airport and a gateway for many of our destinations worldwide.”
