BA announced new China route




British Airways has announced a new route to Chengdu in China to start in September next year.


The thrice-weekly service, which is now on sale, starts on September 22, 2013 and will be served by a Boeing 777.

Special fares, from as low as £508, are available if booked between today and January 6, 2013.

Willie Walsh, CEO of IAG, who announced the route in Chengdu today, said: "Economic growth in China is continuing to outstrip that of most other countries, and Chengdu is not only the capital of Sichuan Province in the South West of China but one of the country's largest cities."


In Summer 2013, British Airways will also be increasing frequencies on services from London Heathrow to Amman, Chennai, Hyderabad, Jeddah, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro and Toronto.
