Winter sun routes from London City
British Airways is bringing a bit of winter sunshine to London City Airport by extending its popular Palma
flights to a year-round service.
At present the two Balearic Island destinations are summer-only routes, but from October they will continue through the winter with two flights a week on Thursdays and Sundays.
The news will come as a welcome boost to Ibiza as the island does not currently have a single direct service to the UK during the winter.
The two islands are very popular with leisure customers through the summer now winter sun seekers and second home owners have the chance to fly there in style throughout the year.
Luke Hayhoe, general manager commercial, BA CityFlyer, said: “Leisure flying is a really important part of our business now from London City. Winter sun breaks are a very popular market and with London City’s unique 20 minute check-in time with luggage customers can leave the gloom of winter and be in the sun in less than three hours.”
British Airways offers all-inclusive fares to all destinations, which include a generous free 23kg luggage allowance, free on-line check-in and seat selection 24 hours before departure and complimentary food and drink on board.
