Passenger boost for City Airport
Sunseekers desperate to get away from the poor British summer have helped boost British Airways passenger numbers at London City Airport.
This year the airline has carried nearly 60 per cent more customers to sunshine destinations from the Docklands airport compared to last year.
The combination of poor British weather, an exciting new schedule of popular leisure destinations, low fares and a brand new fleet of aircraft are seen as the key factors in attracting new customers.
Luke Hayhoe, general manager commercial BA CityFlyer, said: “We first introduced leisure flights to Mallorca and Ibiza last year and they proved so popular we extended the season and brought them back this year. We also introduced year-round flights to Faro and Malaga this year giving customers the option of some winter sun destinations as well.
“We are obviously delighted with the number of people choosing to flying with British Airways from London City and hope the trend continues into next year.”
This summer the airline added extra flights to Palma, Ibiza and Nice to meet demand from passengers.
Flights for Summer 2012 are available to book now on ba.com with low all inclusive one-way fares from £69 to Barcelona and £75 to Faro, Ibiza, Malaga, Nice and Mallorca.
Flights are operated by BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned British Airways subsidiary airline.
