In what is expected to be a high-traffic route on the aerial superhighway, the London-Abu Dhabi route will be reintroduced after a four-year break, as Boeing’s supremely popular 787-9 Dreamliner jets will begin servicing the route at the start of the 2024 summer.

BA73 will depart from London Heathrow at 10:25pm local time and touch down in Abu Dhabi at 8:30am, while BA72 flights out of Abu Dhabi will depart at 10:10am, getting you to London at 3:20pm. Time changes during the winter will mean that BA73 will land in Abu Dhabi at 9:30am, and depart at 11:10am instead.

With BA already flying our neighbours in Dubai to London thrice a week, flights out of, and to, Abu Dhabi will boost connectivity between the UAE capital and a flying hub that is often ranked as the busiest on the planet. Capitalites have already begun to enjoy better access to the UK capital this year, with Etihad reintroducing the mighty A380 superjumbo to their fleet to service the route. British Airways will join 28 other airlines who will be moving to the new Midfield Terminal, which begins operations on November 1.

You can celebrate the return of the London-Abu Dhabi route by taking advtantage of promotional fares, as BA is offering return tickets in the Dhs2,000 range for World Traveller seats. All you need to do is book by November 12.

It’s just one capital idea after another…
