SKY HIGH: A British airways flight lands in London Heathrow

BRITISH AIRWAYS has brought back flights connecting Malaga Airport to London Heathrow.

The new route will see a total of eight flights between the two airports each week – four outbound and four return – and the first passengers to make the journey were given a special commemorative cake to mark the occasion.

The connection could prove to be essential for the region’s tourism industry as Heathrow is a key hub for making international connections, so could help to attract more Asian and American tourists to the region.

Aena, the company that manages Spanish airports and air navigation, announced that the flights will strengthen the Malaga’s connection to London which already holds the crown as the airport’s most popular destination.

The winter season for airlines officially began when the clocks went back and it is common for companies to launch new routes during this time.

New routes from Malaga to other European capitals have also been introduced. Ryanair announced two new flights per week to Prague in the Czech Republic while Scandinavian Airlines now flies to Helsinki, Finland once a week, with more flights to be scheduled during the Christmas period.
