British Airways is increasing service on some of its long-haul routes this spring, a move that allows it to redeploy some of its widebody planes that had been flying on the carrier’s now-suspended routes to China.

The airline is beefing up its spring schedule between London (LHR) and three overseas markets: Cape Town (CPT), Miami (MIA) and Seattle (SEA).

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Three new weekly services between Cape Town (CPT) from 30 March through 19 April. British Airways‘ February schedule shows that it already offers two daily round-trips to CPT from LHR as well as three weekly flights from London Gatwick (LGW).
  • One additional daily service between Miami (MIA) from 1 April through 31 May. British Airways already flies two daily round-trip flights on the route.
  • One additional daily service between Seattle (SEA) from 1 May through 31 May. British Airways already offers daily service between the cities with at least one flight per day.

This announcement of additional frequencies comes after BA announced that it would be suspending all mainland China flights until at least the end of March due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
