British Airways is to increase capacity on routes from Heathrow to Chengdu, Mexico City, Sao Paulo and Tokyo for summer 2014.
BA will increase flights to the Chinese city of Chengdu - a route which was launched in September - from three to five per week from 5 May 2014. The airline intends to use a Dreamliner B787 instead of a B777 on the service from the same date.
The carrier also plans to increase flights to Mexico City from five to six weekly from 27 April 2014, Sao Paulo from seven to 10 per week from 1 June 2014, and Tokyo Haneda from five to six per week from 30 March 2014 before going daily from 4 May 2014.
BA’s latest route changes come on top of previously announced new routes such as Heathrow to Austin as well as extra flights to Cape Town, Entebbe, New York JFK, Seattle and Seoul.
The airline is also planning to begin using an Airbus A380 to Washington DC from 1 September 2014 as well as flying B787s to Hyderabad (30 March 2014), Philadelphia (5 June 2014) and Calgary (5 July 2014).
