More BA flights to Africa


British Airways is increasing its West African schedule, adding a fourth weekly flight to Sierra Leone and Liberia. The announcement comes just nine months after the airline started operating on the routes and will add 33% more capacity between Freetown, Monrovia and London.

The flight will arrive at London Heathrow Terminal 5 at 16h00 on a Friday evening, allowing same-day connections to Washington and saving the need for an overnight transit and visa. The new service starts on 31 October using Boeing 767 aircraft in a three-cabin configuration – World Traveller, World Traveller Plus and Club World. The flight is currently on sale. BA will increase its schedule to Marrakech from daily to 10 flights a week and a third weekly service to Agadir, also in October.

In East and Southern Africa, it has upped the Nairobi frequencies to eight a week. In South Africa earlier this year, BA confirmed three additional frequencies to Johannesburg on top of the existing double-daily schedule.
