British Airways boosting its October schedule with more flights to more destinations.

The UK's British Airways has relaxed some of its internal operational restrictions and decided to increase its flight schedule for this month.  

From the start of the month, the UK's largest legacy carrier has instigated long haul services to Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Bahrain. Coming soon will be a new addition to British Airways’ route network, Lahore - to directly compete with Virgin will start on 12 October and the carrier has confirmed the return of the Grenada service which starts on 14th October. Flights to the popular luxury and honeymoon destination of the Seychelles are all set to return on 16th October. Also starting on 16th is a schedule from Heathrow to the Maldives and Barbados launches on 17th October.

It's not just long-haul routes the airline is increasing,  British Airways is taking advantage of lower pay rates for crews and reintroducing a number of short-haul services, including: 
Milan Linate, 

Later in the month BA will resume flights to Gran Canaria, Billund, Bordeaux, Basel, Brindisi, Cologne, Malta, Salzburg, Vienna and Zagreb.

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances, said: “We’re glad to be returning to more destinations this month, connecting the UK with more and more countries around the world. With increases in both long and short-haul services, there is a destination for anyone, and with our enhanced safety measures we hope this encourages people to start planning their next getaway.”

As always, the operation of any flights is subject to international restrictions and government approval.
