British Airways is to return to Dammam, Saudi Arabia, after a break of more than seven years.
BA will fly to Dammam daily from London Heathrow Terminal 5 from Sunday 1 December 2019.
The route will operate as a “tag on” to BA’s existing service to Bahrain. These have gone out of fashion in recent years in favour of direct flights or local codeshares. Readers may recall BA used to fly to Doha via Bahrain.
The route will be operated with a four class Boeing 777-200 aircraft and flights are on sale now at ba.com
BA previously flew to Dammam up until September 2012 after inheriting the route from bmi British Midland.
