Barbados welcomed the inaugural British Airways flight from London Heathrow to Barbados on October 17, 2020, as it resumed its year-round direct daily service to the island, after a hiatus of more than 15 years.
Barbados will now have enhanced domestic connectivity from all regions of the U.K., including cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle, as well as the key Northwest England gateway of Manchester, and the affluent Chester and Cheadle regions. The flight’s afternoon departure from the U.K. will also offer seamless connections to British Airways’ extensive European network, tapping into the major cities of Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, Berlin, Madrid, Stockholm and Vienna.
Coinciding with the busy half-term period in the Fall, the new service commencing in October will be operated using British Airways’ four-class Boeing 777-200 aircraft. The year-round daily service will boost the already daily flights from London Gatwick, which run from October 2020 through April 2021.
