British Airways announced that it will be operating flights from London Heathrow to Hyderabad on Thursday, September 12th.
So far, the UK-based airline has only operated one-way flights from Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana, and the UK as part of the bilateral bubble pact between India.
The airline will operate four flights a week on the route, British Airways said in a press release.
After the opening of the Indian sky for special flights in August, outbound flights from Hyderabad to London are already being carried out, the airline said.
“British Airways, which is already offering outbound flights from Hyderabad to London after the Indian skies opened for special flights in August, will also fly from London Heathrow to Hyderabad from September 12,” the press release said.
British Airways also flies five times a week from Delhi and Mumbai and four times a week from Chennai and Bengaluru to Heathrow.
A total of 22 flights a week from India to the UK, including flights from Hyderabad, the airline said in the publication.
Since the planned international passenger traffic has ceased at the end of March, India has concluded bubble pacts with the USA, France, Kuwait, Qatar, Great Britain, Canada and Germany, which enable foreign airlines from the respective countries to resume air traffic.
As part of the pact with Great Britain, the Indian airlines SpiceJet and Vistara were also allowed to operate to Great Britain.
