British Airways is further increasing flights and capacity between the Isle of Man and London City Airport next year.
From next summer the airline will operate up to 27 return flights a week compared to 19 this year.
The service is currently operated on a 50-seat Saab 2000 turboprop, but some of the additional services will be on an Embraer 170 jet aircraft, providing up to 50 per cent more seats each week.
The additional flights mean British Airways will offer an excellent schedule to London, flying to the convenient Docklands airport which has excellent transport links to the city centre.
The additional services make it even easier for customers to easily connect with British Airways’ extensive network of business and leisure destinations from London City.
Low one way hand baggage only fares from £49 will be available to book on ba.com. All British Airways fares include free seat allocation and on line check-in 24 hours before departure, complimentary refreshments and drinks and no debit card charges.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer at London City: “We are doing what we told our customers on the Isle of Man we would do, growing and improving our schedule to London. We are delighted to be able to offer up to 3,000 seats a week on well-timed flights that offer the choice of a day return or onward connections”.
Director of Ports for the Isle of Man, Ann Reynolds, said: “The very quick response by British Airways in adding further flights on the London City service from the Isle of Man for Summer 2016 is very positive and very welcome. The new schedule looks very good for both leisure and business customers, offering greater flexibility on services each day, all at competitive fares.”
