Not seen this announced yet, but it is bookable. Heathrow to Tenerife operates every Saturday from October 21st.

Fares start from 98rtn in ET and 310rtn in CE.

Another short haul + route to add to the list - so even the lowest ET fares earn 10 TP each way, and any CE fare earns 80 TP per flight. Did they run this before in previous years?

Supplements the existing LGW-TFS route.

LHR-TFS is (I think) new, I go there at least a couple of times a year and I would have remembered a LHR option instead of LGW or MAD. But LHR-LPA has been around for a while, and there have been some charter flights from T5 to TFS in the past.

Ah ok. I thought this may have been a revived route because the avios and TP table on ba.com is already populated - usually that gets done a few months after a new route is announced.

There was LHR TFN using IBX metal - not sure if this still operates though.

There are also 2 new routes from LHR to GNB and TRN. KEF is going to double daily. INN 6 times a week.

So 212 for the same cramped seat, perhaps 20 worth of food and drink and lounge access? Not great value IMHO.

140 extra TP's adds to the value.

TRN is a long established LGW route, but a LHR placement is good and Turin is a great place for short breaks, much underestimated. GNB is a LCY route. KEF doesn't surprise me, it's been a huge hit for BA and BA Holidays.
