BA links Amman-Washington with superjumbo

AMMAN, October 27, 2014

British Airways has announced the launch of its first non-stop A380 service from Jordanian capital Amman to the US capital Washington DC via Heathrow airport in London.

The airline is initially operating five A380 services a week from Washington Dulles. This will increase from the end of October to a daily A380 service, in conjunction with the daily BA292, operated by a Boeing 747 and the thrice weekly BA264, operated by a Boeing 777, said a statement from the British carrier.

The airline currently flies an A380 from Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Johannesburg, with flights to Singapore beginning on October 28 and San Francisco in April 2015.

To celebrate the launch, British Airways will be offering its First and Club World (business class) customers travelling on the sector an added bonus of enjoying the newly re-launched lounge at Washington Dulles International Airport.

The upgraded lounge can now host 200 customers, thanks to 10,000 sq ft of space. It features intimate bar areas, business facilities, fine dining, shower suites and a private VIP area, said the statement from British Airways.

Reflecting the style of the Galleries flagship lounges at London Heathrow’s Terminal 5, the lounge is designed with areas where customers can relax and unwind, or refresh and work.

A private dining room is available for customers travelling in First, which offers comfort and privacy and those travelling in Club World can enjoy their pre-flight dining with views over the runway, it stated.

For people wanting a lighter snack, a new deli area offers a range of options along with Twinings tea, freshly ground Fairtrade coffee. A stylish new bar area offers a range of complimentary beverages.

The Washington lounge is the latest in a line to be re-launched, following Newark, Cape Town, Edinburgh and Belfast City, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
