JET OFF-SKI TO CHAMBERY WITH BRITISH AIRWAYS

17/08/2010

British Airways is extending its route network from London City Airport this winter with a new route to Chambery, the gateway to the French Alps.

The service, by BACityFlyer, the wholly subsidiary of British Airways, will operate four times a week from 18th December until the end of March 2011, using the airline’s fleet of brand new Embraer 190 aircraft.

Luke Hayhoe, BA CityFlyer commercial manager said: “Our schedule is ideally set up to give our customers the opportunity to spend a long weekend, a full week, or even longer, skiing on some of the world’s best slopes and resorts.

“Only a few short hours after taking off from London’s Docklands, our customers can be in a winter wonderland of 120 ski resorts, all set amidst the majesty and splendour of the French and Swiss Alps.”

Fares starting from £59 one way (including taxes, fees and charges) can be booked on ba.com.
