BA raises capacity on Heathrow-Scotland routes

British Airways is raising frequency between Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen and Heathrow for the winter.

Almost 200 flights a week will operate on all BA’s Scottish routes from Heathrow between October and March – 11 more than last winter.

The winter schedule sees weekly flights between Edinburgh and Heathrow go up by three to 69.

The airline will operate 63 returns a week between Glasgow and Heathrow, an increase of five year-on-year.

Flights between Aberdeen and Heathrow will go up by three a week to 50.

The domestic network growth follows BA announcing a double daily service on the Inverness-Heathrow route from October.

BA also serves Scotland from Gatwick and London City airports.

Return fares start at £61.01 to and from Inverness, £71.06 to Edinburgh, £70.31 to Glasgow and £71.54 to Aberdeen. Departures from Inverness are exempt from Air Passenger Duty.

Networks and alliances director Neil Chernoff said: “British Airways has proudly served Scotland, its people and its businesses for more than six decades.

“We are pleased to be able to connect Scotland with the rest of the world though a global network of more than 150 destinations served from our Heathrow hub, 90 from Gatwick and 30 from London City.”
