Where will the BA A350-1000 fly?

BA, celebrating its 100th anniversary, will initially use the aircraft to fly between London and Madrid to allow the airline’s teams to familiarise prior to flying long-haul routes from September. BA should announce the Madrid flight schedule shortly.

The A350 will start long haul service in September 2019, with Dubai and Toronto as the launch routes. Tel Aviv and Bangalore will be the next two destinations to be added to the A350 flying programme, later in the winter 2019/2020 season.

  • The A350 will fly to Dubai as of September 2, 2019
  • The A350 will fly to Toronto as of October 1, 2019
  • The A350 will fly to Tel Aviv as of December 1, 2019
  • The A350 will fly to Bangalore as of January 1, 2020

During this period another three A350 aircraft will join the British Airways fleet and two Boeing 777 aircraft will also be retrofitted with the new cabin.

At the start of 2020, British Airways will be rolling out its Club Suite on further long-haul aircraft across the network except the Boeing 747.

Alex Cruz, British Airways’ Chairman and CEO, said:

“The arrival of our first A350 featuring our new Club Suite is one of the most exciting developments in our £6.5 billion investment programme.”
