British Airways launching nonstop from San José, California to London, England

British Airways said it will begin service between Mineta San José International Airport and London Heathrow from May 4, 2016.

This marks the first regularly scheduled nonstop service to the UK for the city of San José. British Airways will operate the newest aircraft in its fleet, a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, featuring the airline´s newly designed First cabin.

San José will be the fourth Californian city from which British Airways flies, following Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego. Earlier this year British Airways introduced its superjumbo A380 onto San Francisco, providing customers with comfort, space and enhanced wellbeing for their trip to London.

Seats on the new service from San José will be on sale from Thursday August 27.
