As of today, May 27, British Airways has resumed direct flights between London Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur. The last time the carrier flew the route was in 2001, and in the years since, the Malaysian capital has become the world’s largest aviation hub not serviced directly by the carrier. “We are re-starting the route in response to commercial demand from our customers who have been asking us for direct British Airways flights to Kuala Lumpur, which opens up new connecting routes around the region,” says the carrier’s director of business strategy Lynne Emleton. The flight, which takes approximately 13 hours, is serviced daily out of Heathrow’s Terminal 5 by a Boeing 777-200 aircraft and is the only long-haul route of the seven routes the carrier added to its map this month (others include Krakow, Poland; Corfu and Kos, Greece; Split, Croatia; Olibia, Sardinia, and Funchal, Madeira).
