British Airways to restart daily flights to Abu Dhabi next year

British Airways will launch daily flights to Abu Dhabi next year, following a four-year hiatus. Available to book now, the route will begin operating on April 20, 2024, thus serving the UAE’s capital year-round from London Heathrow airport.

The new flight will be operated by a Boeing 787-9 aircraft in summer 2024 and will boost connectivity to the UAE as it joins flights to neighboring Dubai, which operate up to three times daily from Heathrow.

During the summer 2024, flight BA73 will depart from London Heathrow (LHR) at 10:25pm and arrive at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) at 8:30am the next day, while the return flight BA72 will depart AUH at 10.10am and arrive in London at 3:20pm.

During the winter 2024, the flight BA73 will take off from LHR at 10:25pm and land in Abu Dhabi at 9:30am the next day. The flight BA72 will depart from AUH at 11:10am and arrive at LHR at 3:20pm.

Welcoming the BA move, Maureen Bannerman, Abu Dhabi Airports Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We’re delighted to welcome British Airways back to Abu Dhabi International Airport, adding to the growing list of leading carriers set to use Terminal A as their operational base in Abu Dhabi.”

“A luxurious new gateway to Abu Dhabi, Terminal A will open to the public from November 1, offering state-of-the-art facilities for both passengers and airlines,” he stated.

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances, said: “Abu Dhabi is a unique destination that is making a very welcome return to our network.”

“With a blend of beach, city and desert, it has everything our customers are looking for in a Middle Eastern trip, and we look forward to welcoming them back on board as we grow our footprint in the UAE,” he added.
