Escape to sunnier climes with British Airways this winter and beyond. Flying direct to more destinations in the Caribbean than any other airline, British Airways will take you to where you want to go in style, whether it’s the white sands of St Lucia, the crystal-clear waters of the Bahamas, or the tropical rainforests of Grenada. Journeying east across the Indian Ocean, the Maldives, Seychelles and Mauritius await, while just a little closer to home, the glittering beach resorts of Dubai are now served by the state-of-the-art Airbus A350 and its all-new Club Suite, detailed below.
Introducing the Airbus A350
In August of this year British Airways introduced the Airbus A350, one of the most fuel-efficient aircrafts operating in the world today. Its revolutionary adaptive wing design helps it achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency in the air. And, a combination of carbon composites, titanium and aluminium alloys delivers reduced CO2 emissions and a lower overall fuel burn – important steps forward in an era of growing environmental consciousness. Inside, the A350’s reimagined Club World cabin – Club Suite – offers direct aisle access from every seat, sliding doors for enhanced privacy, and 79” fully flat beds with luxurious White Company bedding. High-speed WiFi, personal charging points and minimum 17” high-resolution screens help you stay connected and entertained whether travelling for business or pleasure.
