BA launches four routes to eastern Europe

British Airways is launching four new flights departing from its Heathrow hub to eastern Europe in time for the summer season.

A twice weekly flight to Wroclaw launches on 1 July and will operate until 26 September, with the other three routes operating three times a week to Gdansk, Riga and Cluj-Napoca from 2 July to 26 September.

BA director of network and alliances Neil Chernoff said: “It’s great to be launching new routes as we listen to our customers and assess where they want to travel.

“We know these four new destinations will be popular with people visiting friends and relatives, but they also offer great city breaks, when the time is right, with flights that head out just before the weekend and return on Sunday.”

All flights will be operated by British Airways’ short-haul Airbus fleet.

Alongside today’s new routes, British Airways will also launch a new summer service to Perugia on 28 June. This was due to start in 2020 but was delayed due to the impact of the pandemic.
