British Airways has said that it will be introducing a new destination to its Heathrow short-haul network, Nuremberg, Bavaria’s second largest city after Munich.
The airline plans to initially operate four flights per week on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays starting on the March 27, 2022, and then intends to increase the schedule to six per week starting from May 1, 2022 and four times a week in winter, from October 30, 2022 to March 25, 2023. Flights will be operating from London Heathrow Terminal 3.
Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Director of Networks and Alliances, said: ‘After over 20 months of travel restrictions we know our customers are looking for new and exciting places to visit, so the addition of this route to our short-haul network ahead of the summer season is perfect timing for anyone who would like to plan their trips for the year ahead.
‘Nuremburg offers something for everyone, ranging from sightseeing in the sunshine to exploring the German markets at Christmas, so we hope our customers take full advantage of this new destination to our network.’
British Airways’ return flights to Nuremberg will start from £69 in Euro Traveller and £202 in Club Europe. Or customers can use Avios as part payment, £59 plus 1,000 Avios or £72 plus 24,500 Avios in Euro Traveller and Club Europe respectively.
Customers travelling in the airline’s Euro Traveller (economy) cabin can pre-purchase items from the Speedbird Cafe, in advance of travel, or can order additional snacks and drinks on board the flight directly to their seat using their mobile device. Customers travelling in Club Europe (business class) have access to priority check in, lounges and restaurant style complimentary dining, including items from the airline’s ‘Best of British’ menus.
Last month, British Airways CityFlyer also announced new short-haul routes from London City to Luxembourg, Barcelona, Guernsey, Jersey, Milan and Thessaloniki operating from March 2022.
The airline has also relaunched new gateways to the US, through the Atlantic Joint Business, such as London to Portland and Barcelona to Los Angeles as well as the addition of the islands of Sao Miguel and Terceira to British Airways’ Heathrow short-haul network launching this summer.
