British Airways starts its winter schedule from London City Airport this week with more capacity and frequency to some of the most popular seasonal destinations.
 
Extra flights to Madrid and Stockholm begin today (October 29) bringing the total number of departures to three a day to both cities.
 
New routes launched earlier this year to Dusseldorf in Germany and Granada in Spain will continue to operate through the winter and there’s good news for winter sun seekers with an extra three flights a week to Ibiza, bringing the total to five. Flights to Palma will also continue through the winter
 
The popular ski routes of Geneva in Switzerland and Chambery in France will start again on December 14, although snow sports enthusiasts can also fly on the new Granada service for the excellent ski resorts of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
 
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways general manager commercial, London City, said: “We are delighted to offer additional flights on these popular routes.  We’re the only airline to serve Granada and Ibiza from the UK in winter, and we’ve had a really positive response from our customers .who will also be able to benefit from our new hand baggage only and semi-flex fares from London City.”

Editors note
