British Airways will begin offering four classes of cabin service on its route from London Heathrow Airport to Moscow Domodedovo Airport from March 25, when the airline introduces Boeing 747-400 flights on the route.
According to British Airways, it will be the first airline to offer customers First Class travel between London and Moscow. The carrier will also offer Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller service on board its daily Boeing 747-400 service.
In addition to operating the daily Boeing 747 service, British Airways is also introducing two daily flights using Boeing 767-300ERs from its long-haul division on the route.
These aircraft and the 747 flight will replace the airline’s existing service, which is operated by its short-haul division using Airbus A319s and A320s and offers only two classes of service.
At four hours’ block time, the new long-haul-division flights to Moscow will be the shortest in British Airways’ long-haul network.
BA says the change of aircraft means its service on the route will offer customers up to four classes of travel. Premium-class passengers will be accommodated in flat-bed seats, will have access to a comprehensive selection of in-flight entertainment and will be offered a wide selection of meals and drinks.
British Airways has been flying to Moscow since 1959 and its vacation company offers a wide selection of hotels in the Russian capital.
