British Airways’ longest non-stop route at 14 hours and 40 minutes took off yesterday (January 3) when the BA0251 left Heathrow for Santiago, Chile

The airline’s latest Latin American route has something for everyone; from its rich culture and areas of natural beauty to its growing economic centre. And with Easter Island nearby offering exploration and adventure.

A Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will fly four times a week to the Chilean capital, increasing the transatlantic destinations on offer and helping to deliver the Plan4Customer objective to fly people where they want to fly.
