The participants alone show the special significance of this new connection: For the inaugural British Airways flight from Nuremberg to London Heathrow, Airport Managing Director Dr Michael Hupe was able to welcome Bavarian Prime Minister Dr Markus Söder, Nuremberg's Lord Mayor Marcus König and British Airways’ Head of Sales for Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, Joerg Tuensmeyer, while British Consul General Simon Kendall sent a message of greeting.

British Airways will initially fly four times a week from Nuremberg and from May will offer six weekly flights, resulting in excellent travel opportunities to the British metropolis as well as worldwide connecting flights via the hub at Heathrow, for example to Santiago de Chile, São Paulo or Dubai. From the winter flight schedule 2022/2023, connections to the metropolises in the USA, including New York, Boston and Chicago, will also be optimised.
