We’re kicking off 2020 with the latest plans from British Airways for the year ahead, plus an amazing competition to win Away’s must-have carry on, courtesy of British Airways.

Let’s take a moment to see some of things British Airways have in store for us this year…

  1. New destinations

British Airways has already announced nine new routes for 2020 including Pristina (Kosovo), Podgorica (Montenegro), Perugia (Italy), Antalya, Dalaman and Bodrum (Turkey), San Sebastián (Spain), Rhodes (Greece) and Portland (Oregon), and it’s promising even more new destinations to come.

  1. New aircraft

The airline is due to take delivery of more than 20 new aircraft in 2020, including 787-10s and A350s which are up to 40% more fuel efficient than the aircraft they replace.

  1. More Club Suite seats

More British Airways aircraft will be flying with the airline’s new business class seat, Club Suite, which offers privacy via a suite door, 40% more storage space and a 1-2-1 layout with direct aisle access for all passengers.

  1. Total connectivity

The majority of eligible aircraft will be WiFi ready by the end of 2020.

  1. Caring for the environment

In addition to investing in more fuel efficient planes, starting this month, British Airways will be carbon offsetting all its domestic flights and continues to work on reducing carbon footprint with further announcements due in 2020.

Look out for more exciting things to come from British Airways.
