“Firstly, the connection to Heathrow is a great value added for the economy in our whole region because London is one of the most important economic centres and there are simple connection opportunities to the worldwide network of British Airways and its partners are the Heathrow hub. Secondly, London is and remains one of the most attractive destinations for city breaks,” Schmid added.

The airline will fly to Heathrow from Cologne Bonn daily from 30 October. On Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays there will be two flights a day (one at around 12 noon, one in the evening at around 20 hours).
