For the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, British Airways has operated to Sydney. Flight BA15 landed at Sydney Airport on Tuesday morning [29 March 2022] at 0621.
To celebrate this momentous milestone, British Airways’ customers in Australia are now eligible to join the Executive Club loyalty scheme.
Noella Ferns, Head of Sales, Asia Pacific, British Airways said: “British Airways has always had a strong link to Australia. For both business and leisure travellers, London is the major gateway for Europe and one of the most popular destinations for our customers down under.
“Today we are thrilled to fly to Australia once again and play our part in reuniting families and friends with their loved ones, including two of our cabin crew members, Ross and Mark who are operating on this very special flight and reunited with their families in Sydney after two years apart.”
Geoff Culbert, CEO Sydney Airport, said: “It’s terrific to welcome British Airways back to Sydney Airport as it resumes one of the most iconic routes in international aviation. The cultural, business and family connections between Australia and the UK run deep, and it will be great to see the Union flag tail on the BA aircraft back at SYD.”
“Since the opening of our international border in February a number of international airlines have returned to Sydney and capacity is increasing – a welcome sight as we gradually climb out of the pandemic and put two years of pain behind us.”
BA’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner features a LED mood lighting system in the cabin and with lower air pressure that help customers to travel more comfortably and minimise the effect of jet-lag on this flight journey spans across 11 time-zone.
