British Airways

Recently, British Airways returned to Abu Dhabi, landing at Zayed International Airport. Customers and workers were greeted warmly after the route had been closed for four years.

British Airways will operate a daily route from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi all year, utilizing a Boeing 787-9 in the summer of 2024. The new route expands our global network and deepens links between the UAE and the United Kingdom, whether passengers are traveling for leisure, business, or to see relatives and friends.

Flight BA073 to Abu Dhabi departs London Heathrow at 22.25 and arrives at 08.30+1. The inbound flight to London (BA072) takes off at 10.10 a.m. and arrives at 15.20 at London Heathrow.

Elena Sorlini, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, stated, “We extend a warm welcome to British Airways as they start operating at Zayed International Airport with a daily schedule that promises to enrich connectivity and invigorate both business and tourism. Our new award-winning and cutting-edge terminal offers visitors an unparalleled introduction to the vibrant UAE capital, where they will be greeted with Emirati hospitality at its finest.”

Calum Laming, Chief Customer Officer at British Airways, stated, “We are really excited to be celebrating our Abu Dhabi route launch. The new daily flight connects Abu Dhabi with London Heathrow and beyond, providing our customers with another amazing destination within our expansive global network and further growing our connections with the UAE. With four cabins to choose from, including First, we are confident customers will enjoy our exceptional and original British Airways service brought to life by our incredible colleagues.”

He added that on a personal level, it is an honor to return to the beautiful city and Emirate of Abu Dhabi, where he was fortunate to reside for the better part of a decade.
