BA Boosts East African Operations

British Airways will replace the Boeing 777s on the daily service between London and Nairobi with the larger Boeing 747-400s. This will add over 780 seats a week on the route.

In Uganda, it will increase services between Heathrow and Entebbe from three to four flights a week from the end of March.

Elsewhere in Africa, British Airways is increasing capacity to Ghana, deploying a larger four-cabin Boeing 747-400 aircraft to replace one of the Boeing 777s operating its 10 weekly services to Accra.

In early March it increased capacity to South Africa when it introduced six A380 services as part of its double-daily service to Johannesburg.

In May, it will grow its winter schedule to Cape Town from daily to 10 a week.
