ATW Online today reports that British Airways will focus on eastern Europe and add Tirana, Varna, Izmir, Ankara, Rostov, Gdansk plus additional destinations in the Ukraine beyond Kiev.
While Tirana, Varna (both by BA from LGW, IIRC), Izmir, Ankara (both by GB from LGW) have been announced quite a while ago, Rostov, Gdansk plus the "additional destinations in the Ukraine" seem to be a new development.

A couple interesting cities there, such as Tirana and Rostov, that I wouldn't have guessed BA would be serving anytime soon. Good to see airlines expanding into Eastern Europe, as it's a fantastic place full of great opportunities for business and travel.
May I assume all routes will be served with 737's or A319/A320's?

Izmir is being operated by BA mainline. It was announced ages ago and is already in the timetable. Where has the GB Airways rumour come from?? What are the plans for Gdansk and Rostov?? They used to serve Gdansk a few years ago didn't they??? When are they going to announce to schedules?

OK, just for clarification: The source is ATW which did not give any details from where and by whom the routes will be operated. I remembered the announcement of ADB and ESB a couple of months ago, but got mixed up with the operating airline and the London gateway.
