British Airways floods UK market with 93,000 summer-holiday seats

British Airways is ramping up the UK market with an extra 93,000 seats up for sale in time for the summer.

The airline said customers can now book to jet off to 13 summer destinations, 10 in Greece, two in the Canary Islands and one in Turkey, with the new services set to launch in June and July.

The new flights BA is operating will mean 26 additional weekly frequencies while booking has opened today.

BA director of networks and alliances Neil Chernoff said: “It’s clear Britons are hoping that their favourite destinations will be open by the time summer comes.

“We want to provide them with access to book seats to the places they love to help them get away, and trust that if they can’t travel, we will be there for them with incredible flexibility to make changes to their bookings.”

BA is currently flying to 27 short-haul destinations, including 112 holiday hotspots for the peak of the summer period.
