10/21/2014

Denver International Airport (DIA) is pleased to announce British Airways will increase its capacity by 23 percent beginning March 2015 on its daily nonstop route between Denver and London Heathrow Airports. Currently, British Airways operates a Boeing 777-200 aircraft and to accommodate this capacity increase, the airline will operate a Boeing 747-400, which will have a total of 337 seats. British Airways will be introducing first class service into the Denver market in addition to Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller. The British Airways service has supported 1,300 jobs annually, generated $694 million in wages and a total economic impact of more than $2.2 billion to the state’s economy since service began on Sept. 1, 1998 between Denver and Gatwick Airport, according to DIA’s analysis. This route was DIA’s first daily, year-round transatlantic flight since DIA opened in 1995. In 2002, services switched from Gatwick Airport to London Heathrow Airport.
