Preveza and Bastia become new destinations for British Airways in summer 2019

New routes from London Heathrow to Preveza in Greece and Bastia in Corsica are the headlines from the release of the UK's biggest airline British Airways' new summer schedule for 2019. 

Preveza is said to be ideally positioned as a gateway to both beach and mountain escapes, sitting just 20 minutes north of the island of Lefkada, a popular summer yachting haven and windsurfers’ paradise. Adventure seekers can also explore one of Europe’s great wildernesses as Preveza is located just 60 minutes away from the Pindus mountains, where travellers can trek the vast alpine trails or explore the UNESCO protected Vikos Gorge.  The new service from British Airways will operate on Wednesdays and Sundays between 26th May and 29 September from May 26 through to September 29, with fares starting at £71.

Flights to the Corsican gateway of Bastia are scheduled for every Saturday from 25th May to 28th September, next year. Bastia will then become the second destination the carrier will serve on the French island following the launch of a new service to Figari this year. Corsica is perfectly placed between France and Italy in the Mediterranean Sea and is fast becoming a must-visit destination for European holidaymakers, BA says the lowest economy fares will start from £48.  


"We're always developing our leisure offering and are committed to giving our customers even more choice of destinations at competitively low prices, so we're pleased to be adding two more stunning spots to our summer schedule." Sean Doyle, British Airways' Director of Network and Alliances, said.

The airline is also increasing the number of flights it operates from Heathrow to other popular leisure destinations next summer, with more flights to Marseille, Budapest, Gibraltar, Palermo, Amsterdam and Malaga and a new service from Gatwick to Kos taking off from May 15, 2019.

In addition to these scheduled increases and new routes from Heathrow and Gatwick, the airline will also boost operations from London City Airport by adding more services to Ibiza, Edinburgh and Berlin.
