British Airways has said that it will operate daily flights from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to Bermuda, starting from March 28, 2021.
The flights will depart from London Heathrow at 14:55, landing in Bermuda at 18:25. The route will be operated by a Boeing 777-200, which will soon feature the airline’s new Club Suite. Tickets are now on sale, with return fares from £510.
Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda’s islands boast fantastic reefs for scuba diving or snorkelling, along with luxury accommodation options selected by British Airways Holidays. This will be the first time the airline has flown from London Heathrow to Bermuda since 1989.
BA’s Director of Network and Alliances, Neil Chernoff, said: ‘We are delighted to launch flights from Heathrow to Bermuda. This is the first time we have flown to Bermuda from London’s biggest airport for over three decades. We look forward to welcoming customers to experience our world class facilities at Heathrow Terminal 5.
‘Whether our customers are travelling on business, visiting friends and family or taking a holiday, Bermuda is now even more accessible from the UK’s largest airport – a gateway for many of our destinations worldwide.’
‘We are delighted to continue our partnership with British Airways, an airline connecting Bermuda to London for more than 85 years’, confirmed Bermuda’s Minister of Transport the Hon. Neville Tyrrell. ‘The island’s leading industry groups see clear benefits for international business and tourism as a result of this decision, which should prove pivotal in the island’s pandemic recovery.’
British Airways has introduced a range of measures to keep its customers safe and is asking customers to abide by the new measures to help manage the wellness of everyone travelling. These include checking-in online, observing social distancing and using hand sanitisers placed throughout airports; wearing a facemask at all times, asking customers not to travel if they think they have any symptoms of Covid-19; mandatory PPE for cabin crew and a new food service, and asking customers to carry their necessities in hand luggage before departure, and where possible, storing their carry-on bag under the seat in front of them.
