Delhi to be the inaugural route for British Airways’ Boeing 787-9

British Airways has announced that its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, complete with a new First class cabin, will start flying to Delhi from 25 October 2015.

With this development, Delhi will become the first route for British Airways globally to benefit from the brand new aircraft and a new First.
To commemorate the launch, British Airways is delighted to launch a special fare offer of over 50% off for its customers travelling from New Delhi to London-Heathrow on the new aircraft in World Traveller (economy). Customers can take advantage of the attractive discount for the sale period 14 July 2015 – 16 July 2015 and outbound travel period 25 October 2015 – 31 December 2015.

Moran Birger, British Airways’ Regional Commercial Manager, South Asia said, “We, at British Airways, are constantly innovating and adding more to our offerings, keeping the customer’s comfort and convenience at the heart of our decision making. India is the second largest international market for us after the U.S. and we are committed to providing the very best to our customers, adding further value to their travel experience with us. “We welcome our customers from Delhi to experience a whole new level of comfort and luxury and do hope they enjoy the benefits of our new aircraft from the city,” he added. The 787-9, the first of which is due to arrive with British Airways in September, is 20ft longer that its 787-8 predecessor (of which the airline has eight), so as well as offering World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and Club World (business class), there’s also room for a new First class cabin – a first for the airline’s 787 fleet.

The First cabin has just eight seats in comparison to the 14 seats* available on other British Airways long-haul aircraft, giving even more exclusivity and privacy to customers.

Created specifically for the Boeing 787-9, the new First suites have been painstakingly designed based on feedback from First customers, to put comfort at the heart of the experience and make the very best use of the more intimate space. The suites now include four new storage areas. A new ottoman next to the adjustable footstool has enough room for shoes, handbags and personal items, while the personal suiter for jackets and coats is now accessible without the customer having to move from their seat.
