BA launches Heathrow – Bilbao; Vueling moves Bilbao to Gatwick

British Airways has today announced it is to launch a twice daily service from London Heathrow to Bilbao in the Basque region of Northern Spain.

Bilbao is currently served from London Heathrow by BA’s IAG sibling Vueling. It will move its four weekly flights to London Gatwick.

Flights launch on 29 March 2015.

BA’s flights will initially operate from Heathrow Terminal 1 and will move to Terminal 3 on 30 June 2015.

Flight Schedule

Flight BA466 London Heathrow – Bilbao Depart 09:20 Arrive 12:20
Flight BA468 London Heathrow – Bilbao Depart 16:05 Arrive 19:05

Flight BA467 Bilbao – London Heathrow Depart 13:05 Arrive 14:00
Flight BA469 Bilbao – London Heathrow Depart 19:40 Arrive 20:35

Whilst a popular leisure destination in its own right (Bilbao is of course home to a Guggenheim museum) we understand the service has been operated to attract corporate clients in the area to BA’s London network and cargo traffic from the port of Bilbao.
