BA chairman and chief executive Alex Cruz said: “We’re always developing our leisure offering from Heathrow so are incredibly pleased to be adding Kefalonia to our network.

“The launch of our new summer routes, which also include Figari in Corsica and Almeria, mean we will be flying 39 more routes in 2018 than we did in 2016 – an increase of 17%.
