British Airways to fly daily to Shanghai-181

Airline looking to continue China expansion

British Airways have announced that from 31st March their service between Heathrow & Shanghai will increase from 6 to 7 flights a week. The announcement re-enforces the airline’s stated commitment to increasing flights between the UK and mainland China and comes before the September launch of their brand new service between Heathrow & Chengdu. Both routes will be served by Boeing 777s with 4 class cabins.

Earlier this month, the airline’s oneworld partner Cathay Pacific announced that they would be launching a 5th daily service between Hong Kong & Heathrow; British Airways currently has a double daily service on the route although it has been rumoured that Hong Kong will be British Airways launch route for the A380 when it arrives this summer.
