British Airways now flying A350-1000 between Bengaluru, London

Bengaluru: Leading global airline British Airways on Thursday announced the launch of a new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft between Bengaluru and London as part of its 6.5 billion pound (Rs 60,817 crore) global investment plan across touch points. "With increased flights out of Mumbai and new aircraft from Bengaluru, we are currently focusing on enhancing customer experience on board our flights from India," British Airways' Asia Pacific and Middle East sales head Moran Birger said. However, Birger did not give a break-up of the share of 6.5 billion pounds that would percolate into India as investment.
The new aircraft on the daily flight service between Bengaluru and London has a seat configuration of 219 economy seats, 56 premium economy seats and 56 premium club class seats, total capacity of 331 seats. Bengaluru is the fourth destination in British Airways' global network to deploy the new aircraft. Though announced on Thursday, the aircraft started operating from January 2. "Bengaluru is a very important market for British Airways. Tech companies and young population of the city and India's growing GDP are a great prospect," said Birger. He said British Airways has a well established brand in India and will continue to invest in the country.
