* Capacity to Kuwait is set to increase by some 20% as the airline switches from a 777 to a 747.

* Capacity will also be increased on flights to Dubai as the airline switches from a 777-200 to a 777-300.

* Flights to Jeddah become daily.

* Travellers flying on 777s to the Middle East (destinations currently served include Muscat, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha & Bahrain) will benefit from the new cabins being introduced including new seating and in-flight entertainment in both Economy & World Traveller Plus.

Says Area Manager for the Middle East:

“2012 was a big year for British Airways globally, and in the Middle East especially, where we celebrated 80 years of flying to the region. The current winter season has been one of our best and we have invested in our Middle East routes as a result. This is one of the most prosperous regions in the world and has a healthy state of finances, which makes it an attractive destination for business and leisure travellers. This is reflected in the increased demand for travel to the Middle East, to which we have responded with an increase in our flights and capacity to the region”
