British Airways has announced it will be increasing its service to Ibiza from Heathrow Airport at the end of next month. Starting from the 27th April, the airline will introduce a weekend service to the Spanish party island.
The improved service means better choice for passengers flying to Ibiza, allowing customers to avoid late night flights and optimize their time spent on the island. The new Saturday service will take off from Heathrow at 11.20 am, arriving in Ibiza at 2.45 pm and the return flight will be at 3.30pm. The Sunday service will depart earlier, leaving Heathrow at 7.05 am and arriving in Ibiza at 10.30 am, with the returning flight departing at 11.15 am.
“People love Ibiza, and tend to come back for many years again once they've visited,” said Claire Bentley, British Airways Holidays’ managing director. “It's no surprise that we've already seen huge success with our services from London City Airport and Gatwick Airport and expect London Heathrow to be just as popular."
Many people head to Ibiza every year for its world renowned clubbing scene and long sandy beaches. The new flight schedule means that party goers and clubbers could, if they wanted to, fly out on the Saturday and party in the evening, before catching the morning flight on Sunday without having to book accommodation, saving their pennies for the clubs.
British Airways has also announced it will be increasing its services to other popular summer destinations, including an increased service to Palma from Heathrow,as well as an increased service to Lanzarote and Tenerife, both from Gatwick Airport.
