British Airways Adds Flights From Toronto

TORONTO, Dec. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- British Airways announced it will
be increasing its flights between Toronto and London Heathrow, from March 31,

offering Club World business class, World Traveller Plus premium economy and
World Traveller, the airline's economy class.

Flights departing from Toronto arrive at London Heathrow's Terminal 5. The
extra service will offer customers increased access to London, as well as
convenient onward connections to Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Amsterdam and
Istanbul, among others.

Passengers in Club World or Club Europe and Gold and Silver Executive Club
