Although winter seems to be taking its time in moving on British Airways is already welcoming the summer, having recently kicked off its brand new summer schedule.

Speaking about the new timetable, presenter and musician Myleene Klass, said: "Take advantage of British Airways' summer schedule starting, grab your bikini (you know I'm partial to mine) and let's get out of this freezing weather!"

The airline has launched a host of routes to Spanish destinations in time for the summer season, allowing travellers to visit numerous brand new locations. New services from Gatwick to Tenerife started on March 29 and to Alicante and Lanzarote on March 31. Flights from Heathrow to Palma also began on March 31 and the airline will be flying from the major London airport to Ibiza from April 27. London City airport will also benefit from a new British Airways flight to Granada in Spain from July 25.

In addition to these shorter routes, British Airways will start routes to two new long-haul destinations this season with flights from Gatwick to Sri Lanka starting on April 14 and services from Heathrow to Chengdu in China beginning on September 22.

The new season also sees a few changes to the airline's existing routes. From March 31 British Airways moved its flights to and from Dusseldorf, Toulouse, Zagreb, Leeds Bradford and Almaty from Heathrow's Terminal 1 to Terminal 5 and Larnaca, Singapore and Sydney from Terminal 3 into Terminal 5.
