The British Are Coming!

Nonstop flights between San Diego and Europe. How does that sound?

British Airways announced today that, in cooperation with American Airlines, nonstop service between San Diego International Airport and London Heathrow Airport will start June 1, 2011.

The announcement was made moments ago at a special news conference at Airport Authority headquarters attended by San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, Airport Authority Board Chair Robert Gleason, Airport Authority President/CEO Thella Bowens, and representatives from British Airways and American Airlines.

British Airways, American Airlines and Iberia Airlines recently formed a new partnership, and today’s news is part of a growth strategy resulting from that partnership.

Airport Authority analysis shows there is a significant untapped market of people – from the business and leisure sectors – eager to take advantage of nonstop service between San Diego and London. The new service will be aboard British Airways Boeing 777 aircraft, seven days a week. Passengers may book the flights through British Airways or American Airlines and accumulate miles in either airline’s frequent flier program.
