British Airways debuted the upcoming four class cabin
experience on the route from London Heathrow to Moscow. From March 25,
British Airways will be the first airline to offer customers First
class travel between London and Moscow, as well as Club World, World
Traveller Plus and World Traveller onboard a daily Boeing 747 service.
Richard Tams, head of UK and Ireland sales and marketing, said: "Customers in all
cabins, especially First and Club World, will be able to enjoy a top-class customer
experience and the best premium travel between London and Moscow."
The new long-haul flights to Moscow will be the
shortest in the British Airways network and takes just four hours.
As well as operating a daily Boeing 747 service, British Airways is also putting two
daily long-haul Boeing 767s on the route to replace the existing short-haul service.
The change of aircraft means the route will change from a short-haul service
operated with two cabins to a long-haul operation, offering customers up to four
classes of travel, with the opportunity to enjoy the premium service, fully
flat-beds, comprehensive in-flight entertainment and wide selection of meals and
drinks in unrivalled comfort.
British Airways has been flying to Moscow since 1959 and offers a wide selection of
hotels in the capital.
International film actress, Gillian Anderson flew on the preview flight this week to
launch the new service from British Airways.
Gillian Anderson said: "It's the first time I've travelled to Moscow and I'm
delighted more people can now do the same in the luxury of British Airways First
Class. Flying British Airways feels like a little bit of Britain and I always look
forward to flying with them especially when coming home."
