New BA Chengdu service

Article content

19 December 2012 by Luke McCormick

British Airways is to start flying to Chengdu in China's western province of Sichuan.

The three-times weekly direct service from London Heathrow to Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport is now on sale and will start on 22 September 2013.

The route will be served by a Boeing 777 in a four-cabin configuration with First, Club World (Business Class), World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) and World Traveller (Economy).

Willie Walsh, chief executive of BA's parent company, IAG, said: "I have visited China on many occasions and last year went to Chengdu to see for myself the progress that has been made at the airport. It is truly impressive and shows vision and ambition.

"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."
