BRITISH AIRWAYS BEEFING UP MID EAST PRESENCE
To meet increasing traveling demand in the Middle East, British Airways will beef up its presence in the region by using more planes to fly more routes, according to the Lebanese a-Safir daily. The airline will open a new and direct flight between Britain and Aleppo, which will fly non-stop two times a week beginning in mid-2000. British Airways also intends to launch a direct, non-stop flight from Britain to Alexandria. Currently, the flight makes a stop in Beirut. To help the company handle the new routes and growing demand, British Airways is increasing to four the number of planes it uses for the Middle Eastern market.
