In terms of location, Sheremetyevo is to the north of Moscow, and is a hub for Skyteam alliance airlines primarily.
The change is being made for customer convenience, with Joerg Tuensmeyer, Head of Sales for Europe, stating
“By changing one of our three daily flights to SVO we are opening up the north of the city for our Russian customers and giving more options to our UK based travellers who need to get to that part of the city when they arrive into the capital. We know how precious time is, especially to our business customers and frequent flyers, so this change allows them to spend more time in the lounge working or relaxing.”
Tickets are on sale now, with lead in starting at £269 in World Traveller, £338 in World Traveller Plus and £1000 in Club World (depending on the offering on the plane.
As part of the connectivity game, its good to see British Airways adds more destinations, whilst keeping the same frequency to the city.
