ROYAL BRUNEI WILL FLY NON-STOP FROM LONDON HEATHROW TO BRUNEI FROM OCTOBER 28, CUTTING OUT ITS CURRENT STOP IN DUBAI AND REDUCING THE JOURNEY TIME BY 3HRS 30MINS
BRITISH AIRWAYS is to introduce a direct service between London Heathrow and Durban, South Africa, this winter.
Beginning October 29, the route, operated by B787 aircraft, will be the only non-stop link between Europe and King Shaka International Airport. The three-times-a-week service will leave London at 15.45, arriving in Durban at 05.35 the next day. The return leg will depart at 07.35 and arrive in London at 17.45.
Alex Cruz, British Airways’ Chairman and CEO, says: “Durban is home to the busiest port in South Africa and is a large manufacturing hub, so the new route will secure another important link between the UK and the region that will be a welcome addition for business travellers.”
Fares start from £599 in economy, £1,214 in premium economy and from £3,199 in business class.
