British Airways to increase service to Shanghai

British Airways has announced that it will be offering its customers a new daily service to Shanghai. Starting in March the airline will increase its service from six flights a week to seven.

The move aims to attract both business travellers and tourists and will offer better access to one of China’s main commercial centres. The increase of service is part of the airline's plans to extend its network to China and will see seven flights a week to Shanghai starting in March and three weekly flights to Chengdu in September.

“I’m delighted that we are now able to offer our customers a daily service to Shanghai,” said Jamie Cassidy, British Airways’ general manager for the Middle East and Asia Pacific. “Shanghai is a very important route for British Airways’ customers, especially for those doing business there. We want companies from China to grow and strengthen in the UK market and for British companies in the UK to thrive in China.”

“This extra service will allow both countries to strengthen their economic ties and demonstrates the importance of China to British Airways and our commitment to grow our presence there.”

British Airways has been flying to Shanghai since June 2005 and the new service will offer people more choice for flying to China. All flights to Shanghai will be served on a Boeing 777. The Airline is also planning to invest around £5 billion over the next five years in new aircraft, redesigned cabins, better lounges and new technologies such as iPads to further increase customer’s satisfaction.
