British Airways announces new flights to Ibiza

British Airways has announced the launch of a new service to Ibiza from Heathrow Airport, with weekend services starting at Heathrow from April 27, 2013.

The flight times will come as welcome news for clubbers, who will be able to arrive and depart during the day, allowing them to maximize their party-time on and avoid late night flights to Ibiza.

The Saturday service will depart from Heathrow at 11.20am, arriving at 2.45pm, with return flights at 3.30pm arriving back at 5pm. The Sunday flights will depart Heathrow at 7.05am, arriving at 10.30am, with the return flight departing at 11.15am, arriving at 12.45pm.

This means that hardcore clubbers could even enjoy an overnight jaunt to the island with no accommodation needed, if they dare to take the Saturday service landing early afternoon and returning back on 'red-eye' morning flight the next day.

Claire Bentley, British Airways Holidays managing director, said: "People love Ibiza, and tend to come back for many years again once they've visited. It's no surprise that we've already seen huge success with our services from London City Airport and Gatwick Airport and expect London Heathrow to be just as popular."

In time for the new summer schedule, the airline is also adding flights to other popular Spanish destinations, including Heathrow to Palma (starting March 31), Gatwick to Lanzarote (starting March 31) and flights to Tenerife from Gatwick (starting March 29) for holidays in Spain.

All flights are DJ friendly, with passengers able to take record bags (56cm x 45cm x 25cm) with no weight limit as a carry on bag, plus a handbag or laptop bag, as well as checking in a bag weighing up to 23kgs. As well the generous allowance, British Airways flights include free online check-in and seat selection 24 hours prior to departure, as well as in-flight refreshments.

British Airways offers flights to Ibiza from London Heathrow, Gatwick and London City Airport, all available to book on
