From October 25, 2015, British Airways will start flying three times a week to Reykjavik in Iceland and twice a week to Salzburg in Austria, from December 5, 2015. Flights will be on sale from May 7 and the additional routes will see the number of new destinations launched from the airline in 2015 rise to 20, with eight of them flying from Heathrow.

Lynne Embleton, Director of Strategy and Business Units, said: “These two new routes will be a great addition to British Airways’ ever expanding short-haul network. Reykjavik is a new destination for us, and customers will now have the convenience of flying from Heathrow as well as Gatwick to Salzburg.”
