LONDON- British Airways (BA) is set to reintroduce daily flights to Abu Dhabi (AUH) next year, marking its return to the route after a four-year absence. Travelers can now make reservations for these flights, which are scheduled to commence on April 20, 2024.

Abu Dhabi, known for its impressive architecture, diverse culture, desert vistas, stunning beaches, and top-tier attractions, appeals to a wide range of visitors seeking a blend of culture, relaxation, and adventure.
British Airways plans to operate the new flight using a Boeing 787-9 aircraft during the summer of 2024. This addition will enhance travel options to the UAE, complementing the existing flights to Dubai, which currently run up to three times daily from London Heathrow.
British Airways is offering return fares starting at £449 in World Traveller (economy class) and £1,999 in Club World (business class) to mark this route’s launch.
These special fares can be booked until November 12, 2023. Executive Club Members can also purchase Reward Seats, starting from £100 and 50,000 Avios.
Neil Chernoff, Director of Network and Alliances at British Airways, expressed his enthusiasm: “The return of Abu Dhabi to our route network is a significant and welcomed development. Abu Dhabi offers a unique blend of beach, city, and desert experiences, catering to the diverse preferences of our travelers in the Middle East. We eagerly await the return of our passengers on board and look forward to expanding our presence in the UAE.”
