British Airways is planning to double the number of flights between Dublin and London Heathrow on its service this winter.
Following the acquisition of bmi by International Airlines Group (IAG), British Airways now operates this air link after taking over the route at the end of June.
The changes will take place when the airline introduces its winter 2012 schedule and launches a new timetable which sees the number of daily services increase from four to eight return flights, enabling it to offer thousands more seats a week between both cities.
The new schedule, effective from October 28, will also include the introduction of a new early morning departure time of 6.25am benefiting both business and leisure customers.
Commenting on the announcement, Simon Daly, British Airways’ Sales Manager Ireland, said: “I am delighted to see the British Airways colours back in Dublin after an absence of 20 years. We appreciate the importance of air links to London and are pleased to announce that less than two months after taking over this route, we are now able to respond to customer demand and increase capacity.
