British Airways launches new flights to Portugal from Heathrow

British Airways is planning to launch new flights from Heathrow to Oporto in Portugal for the summer of 2014.

The airline will start operating twice-weekly flights to Oporto from March 30. Tickets for flights from London to Portugal are now available for sale on ba.com or contacting a travel agent.

From March 30, the airline will also start twice-weekly flights from Heathrow to Faro. This move is intended to give travellers more choice regarding their departure airport, as the routes are already served by British Airways from Gatwick and London City. Faro will also benefit, as the airline is set to increase the Gatwick service from 8 to 14 services a week next summer.

Lynne Embleton, director of strategy, said: ‘We want to give our customers even more great destinations to choose from next summer. We believe the introduction of Oportoi will prove very popular with holiday-makers looking for summer sun and the start of flights to Faro from Heathrow, plus the increase in frequencies to a number of popular summer routes will give them even more choice.’

As part of its summer 2014 offer, British Airways Holidays is offering a three-night break in Oporto at the Mercure Porto Centro hotel from £299 per person for travel in June, including return flights from Heathrow and accommodation only.

All British Airways flights include a free cabin baggage allowance, free on-line check-in and seat selection 24 hours before departure and complimentary food and drink on board.
