BA to launch new flights to Italy



British Airways will launch a new flight to Bologna in Italy next April and increase frequency to a number of other European hotspots from Heathrow.


The new service, which goes on sale today, will start on April 29 and will be in addition to BA's flights to Bologna from Gatwick.


The airline will also offer additional flights from Heathrow to Barcelona, Brussels, Amsterdam and Rome during the peak summer season.


BA has already announced that it will be investigating more than £5bn in new aircraft, refurbished cabins and lounges over the next five years.


From next week, it will be rolling out iPads to 2,000 crew members to provide them with up-to-the-minute information on passengers, following a successful three-month trial of the tablets.


Crew will be able to get the latest information on passenger preferences, their previous travel arrangements and any special requests. The iPads will replace the long scrolls of paper normally handed to crew immediately prior to departure.
