Great news for globetrotters! British Airways, the renowned flag carrier of the UK, has reinstated its flights between London Heathrow and Abu Dhabi, marking a return after a hiatus of four years.

Starting April 20, passengers can once again hop aboard British Airways’ daily flights from the bustling British Capital to Abu Dhabi’s newly renamed Zayed International Airport. Prices for one-way tickets start at Dhs1,795, with return fares available from Dhs3,380.

The resumption of this vital air corridor, which is anticipated to witness substantial passenger traffic, comes after the route’s last operation in 2019. Adding to the allure, Boeing’s acclaimed 787-9 Dreamliner will service the London-Abu Dhabi route from the upcoming summer season.

For travellers planning their journey, BA73 will depart from London Heathrow at 10:25 PM local time, reaching Abu Dhabi at 8:30 AM. Conversely, BA72 flights departing from Abu Dhabi are scheduled to take off at 10:10 AM, ensuring passengers arrive in London by 3:20 PM. Please note that adjustments in timings during winter will see BA73 landing in Abu Dhabi at 9:30 AM and departing at 11:10 AM instead.

With British Airways already connecting neighboring Dubai to London, the resumption of flights to and from Abu Dhabi promises enhanced connectivity between the UAE’s capital and one of the world’s busiest aviation hubs. Residents of the capital city have been enjoying improved access to the UK capital since last year, with Etihad Airways reintroducing the mighty A380 superjumbo to cater to this route.
