British Airways Resumes Flights to Abu Dhabi

British Airways resumes flights to Abu Dhabi this morning as it is welcomed at Zayed International Airport following a four-year pause.

From now on British Airways will operate flights from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi all year around on a daily basis, using Boeing 787-9 during summer 2024.  This route is the newest addition to the carriers’ extensive global network for customers travelling between the UAE and the UK for leisure, business or to visit relatives and friends, and serves as a way to strengthen the connections between UAE and UK.

At 22:25, Flight BA073 will depart from London Heathrow Airport, and arrive in Abu Dhabi at 08.30+1. The flight (BA072) that is coming into London leaves Abu Dhabi at 10:10 and arrives at Heathrow at 15:20. 

Elena Sorlini, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said, “We extend a warm welcome to British Airways as they start operating at Zayed International Airport with a daily schedule that promises to enrich connectivity and invigorate both business and tourism. Our new award-winning and cutting-edge terminal offers visitors an unparalleled introduction to the vibrant UAE capital, where they will be greeted with Emirati hospitality at its finest.”

Calum Laming, Chief Customer Officer at British Airways, said, “We are really excited to be celebrating our Abu Dhabi route launch. The new daily flight connects Abu Dhabi with London Heathrow and beyond, providing our customers with another amazing destination within our expansive global network and further growing our connections with the UAE. With four cabins to choose from, including First, we are confident customers will enjoy our exceptional and original British Airways service brought to life by our incredible colleagues.

And on a personal level, it is an honour to return to the fantastic city and Emirate of Abu Dhabi where I was lucky to live for the best part of a decade.”
