British airways cuts Zambian route

British Airways has cancelled its three times a week service from London Heathrow to Lusaka with effect from 27th October 2013.

In a statement, the airline says the flights are being suspended because they don’t make a profitable contribution to its business.

It said British Airways is always reviewing its route network to ensure it is in line with the needs of its customers.

Customers booked to fly with British Airways after 25th and 26th October 2013 will be offered a full refund or can alternatively be re-booked onto flights to/ from Johannesburg, Nairobi or Entebbe.

“We remain fully committed to Africa and will continue to serve East Africa with a daily service to Nairobi and a thrice weekly service to Entebbe, increasing to four times a week from the start of the summer schedule 2014,” it said.
