Good News for Calgary

Many of you will probably have heard me grumble about the prices of direct flights from London to Calgary. Thanks in part to the take over of Canadian by Air Canada, the only major carrier operating a direct service has been Air Canada. The impression I’ve got over recent years is that they’ve tended to take advantage of that to make some money on the tickets – the cheapest direct tickets sometimes costing twice as much as some of the indirect competition. However, all of that is going to change come December, as after an absence of eight years, British Airways are starting up direct flights again, which hopefully should bring about some competition on the route and bring the fares down a bit.
