BA to introduce first and business class on flights to Moscow

British Airways have announced that they are to introduce first and business class cabins on flights from London Heathrow to Moscow from April 2012. The move was announced during a UK trade delegation to Russia which was attended by British business leaders and hosted by David Cameron.

Sir Martin Broughton, chairman of BA is pleased with the development. he said - “We are proud to have been flying to Russia for over fifty years. It is an important and growing market for us and we want to reflect our commitment to the region and our customers by enhancing our services and increasing the number of seats that are available to Moscow."

The new cabins will feature fully flat beds, state of the art entertainment and a wider selection of food and drink. BA currently operates three flights a day from Heathrow to Moscow and has forged closed ties with Russian Airline S7 following a code share agreement to allow BA passengers the option to connect with S7 flights further afield.
