The weekly flights from London Heathrow will take passengers to two destinations across the islands: firstly, the capital of Ponta Delgada* on Sao Miguel island (between 2 July and 3 September) and neighbouring Terceira island (between 10 July and 28 August).

BA's Director of Network and Alliances, Neil Chernoff, said: "After a difficult 18 months, it's fantastic to be in a position to launch two new routes next summer from Heathrow.

"These two Islands in the Azores will be the perfect addition to our network, offering more choice in one of the most popular regions in Europe for British sunseekers."
