British Airways customers will have even more choice of holiday hotspots this coming summer with the launch of a new route to Kefalonia and more seats on sunshine services.

From May 15 until October 6, 2018, customers will be able to fly direct from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to the island of Kefalonia, home to some of Greece’s best beaches and the idyllic setting to Louis de Bernieres’ novel-turned-film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Flights will depart on Tuesday and Saturdays.

The island of Kefalonia (below) is renowned for its picturesque beaches, traditional fishing villages and stunning scenery and Myrtos beach is one of the world’s most photographed stretches of sand. It will be the first time the airline has operated to the Greek island.

Earlier this month British Airways announced it would start flying between London Heathrow and Corsica, with direct flights to Figari Airport operating every Sunday from May 27 until October 7, 2018. A new route to the historic Spanish city of Almeria will also launch with flights taking to the skies from March 27, 2018.

Next summer, Ibiza will go from four per week to a daily service, Mykonos will be served six times a week from four, while an additional weekly flight will be added on to the airline’s schedules to Olbia and Split.
