BA adds extra Dubai flight

British Airways World Cargo has added a third daily flight to Dubai as part of its winter schedule.

Johnny Rubio, area commercial manager, said: “Making extra capacity available to our customers in Dubai will be of tremendous benefit to the region.”

There has also been a change to the longhaul freighter programme with the London Stansted to Hong Kong rotation, which will see Munich replace Cologne from 29 October.

The current summer shorthaul freighter schedule will remain in place for winter.

* British Airways World Cargo is reducing its fuel surcharge to 60 pence as of 3rd November, following a second consecutive week that the fuel index has been below the level 18 threshold.

Adam Carson, senior manager revenue management, British Airways World Cargo, said: “As a result of the continued decline in fuel costs we are reducing the fuel surcharge by three levels, in line with our index.”
