Heathrow’s return to a full flying programme have quietly begun as British Airways announce several new seasonal routes from the airport between July and September.

Poland will see the familiar livery of the UK’s national airline once again as services commence to Wroclaw (WRO) with twice-weekly flights starting on July 1 and a thrice-weekly service to Gdansk on July 2. Riga in Latvia and the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca will also see seasonal flights three times a week.

British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances Neil Chernoff said: “It’s great to be launching new routes as we listen to our customers and assess where they want to travel. We know these four new destinations will be popular with people visiting friends and relatives, but they also offer great city breaks, when the time is right, with flights that head out just before the weekend and return on Sunday.”

BA will also be launching a new summer service to the Italian city of Perugia on 28 June. This was due to start in 2020 but was delayed due to the impact of the pandemic.
