British Airways to Launch Service Between London Heathrow and Bermuda From March 28, 2021
Starting March 28, 2021, British Airways will offer daily service between London-Heathrow’s Terminal 5 and Bermuda. The route will be operated with a Boeing 777-200 which will soon feature the carrier’s new Club Suite.
On Wednesday (September 30, 2020), British Airways announced the launch of daily flights between London-Heathrow (LHR) and Bermuda starting March 28, 2021. The service will operate out of Terminal 5 at Heathrow and the route will be served with a Boeing 777-200, soon to be upgraded with the airline’s Club Suite. Flights will depart LHR at 14:55 and arrive in Bermuda at 18:25 (all times local). In Wednesday’s announcement, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances, Neil Chernoff, said,
“We are delighted to launch flights from Heathrow to Bermuda. This is the first time we have flown to Bermuda from London’s biggest airport for over three decades. We look forward to welcoming customers to experience our world class facilities at Heathrow terminal 5. Whether our customers are travelling on business, visiting friends and family or taking a holiday, Bermuda is now even more accessible from the UK’s largest airport – a gateway for many of our destinations worldwide.”
Also commenting on the new service, Bermuda’s Minister of Transport, the Honorable Neville Tyrrell, added,
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with British Airways, an airline connecting Bermuda to London for more than 85 years. The island’s leading industry groups see clear benefits for international business and tourism as a result of this decision, which should prove pivotal in the island’s pandemic recovery.”
Tickets between London and Bermuda are on sale now with return fares starting at only £510. Today’s announcement marks the first time British Airways has flown between London-Heathrow and Bermuda since 1989. Heathrow has been named ‘The Best Airport in Western Europe’ for the last five years and ‘Best Airport or Shopping’ for ten years in a row by Skytrax. British Airways’ Terminal 5 home at Heathrow has also been named ‘World’s Best Airport Terminal’ six times since opening in 2009.
British Airways has introduced a range of measures to keep their guests safe throughout their travels. The carrier recommends that customers check-in online and scan their boarding pass at the departure gate, where possible. Social distancing should be used throughout the airport and hand sanitizer stations should be utilized. Facemasks must be worn throughout the journey and should be replaced every four hours on long-haul flights. Naturally, customer experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should refrain from traveling. British Airways’ cabin crew members have been outfitted with PPE kit and a modified food service, reducing unnecessary interactions, has been introduced. The carrier also asks guests to remove all needed items from hand luggage before departure and to store carry-on items under the seat in front of them, if possible.
The carrier cleans all key surfaces such as seats, IFE screens, seat buckles and tray tables after every flight, while the entire aircraft is cleaned at the end of every day. All air on British Airways flights is fully recycled every two to three minutes through hospital operating theater grade HEPA filters, which remove 99.9% of particulates, including microscopic bacteria and virus clusters.
