Customers can start plotting their summer escape now as British Airways launches new routes from Heathrow to Preveza in Greece and Bastia in Corsica and adds more flights to leisure destinations.

Seats to the picture-perfect Greek town are available to book on ba.com from today with flights taking off from Terminal 5 on Wednesdays and Sundays from May 26 through to September 29, 2019. Fares start from £71 one-way in Euro Traveller and £198 in Club Europe and customers can choose to cut the cost of flights by using Avios part payment. They can pick from a range of savings by destination and cabin while still collecting Avios and Tier Points on their bookings.

Preveza is ideally positioned as a gateway to both beach and mountain escapes, sitting just 20 minutes north of the island of Lefkada, a world-famous summer yachting haven and windsurfers’ paradise. Adventure seekers can also explore one of Europe’s great wildernesses as Preveza is located just 60 minutes away from the Pindus mountains, where travellers can trek the vast alpine trails or explore the UNESCO protected Vikos Gorge.

Flights to the Corsican gateway of Bastia will operate every Saturday from May 25 to September 28, 2019, and will be the second destination the airline will serve on the French island following the launch of a new service to Figari this year. Corsica is perfectly placed between France and Italy in the Mediterranean Sea and is fast becoming a must-visit destination for European holidaymakers. Fares start from £48 in Euro Traveller and £128 in Club Europe one-way.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances, said: “We’re always developing our leisure offering and are committed to giving our customers even more choice of destinations at competitively low prices, so we’re pleased to be adding two more stunning spots to our summer schedule. On our long haul network we’re launching new routes to Osaka and Pittsburgh and increasing the number of flights to Nashville, and we’re also increasing the number of services to European destinations such as Malaga, Gibraltar and Palermo.”

The airline is also increasing the number of flights it operates from Heathrow to other popular leisure destinations next summer, with more flights to Marseille, Budapest, Gibraltar, Palermo, Amsterdam and Malaga and a new service from Gatwick to Kos taking off from May 15, 2019.

Flights from London City will also be boosted, with additional frequencies on Ibiza, Edinburgh and Berlin.
