British Airways to launch flights to Granada

17/03/2013

British Airways is to start flights to Granada from London City Airport and will be the only airline operating from the UK to one of the most historic parts of Spain.

The year-round service will launch on 25 July, just before the start of the busy summer season.

Flights will operate on a 98-seat Embraer 190 jet four days a week with an additional flight during the summer.

The Granada region is one of the most important areas of great historical interest and is home to the famous Alhambra Palace, the most visited monument in Spain. Situated at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Granada is an excellent year-round leisure destination. It is very close to the Sierra Nevada Ski Station where the 1996 World Alpine Ski Championships were held, and is just an hour from the Mediterranean coast.

Luke Hayhoe, British Airways general manager commercial at London City said: “This is an excellent opportunity for us to add to our schedule of leisure destinations from London City. We chose Granada because that region has a wealth of cultural and historic interest yet people currently can’t fly there direct from the UK. “The Granada flights will also compliment our Malaga service which is so popular that we are also increasing frequency there from four to six flights a week from July 25.”
