New Sunshine Routes and More Flights from London City

07/12/2010

British Airways is growing its route network at London City Airport with the launch of two new sunshine routes next summer.

 

From June, passengers will be able to fly direct from the Docklands to Malaga in Spain and Faro in Portugal.

 

The airline is also increasing frequency to Amsterdam to six daily flights, Glasgow to five daily flights and Edinburgh to eight daily flights next summer.  This is in addition to launching new services to Chambery in France in December and Stockholm in Sweden in January.

 

Flights will be operated by BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned British Airways subsidiary airline.

 

The popular summer services to Palma and Ibiza will resume at the end of March and means that the airline will be offering 40 per cent more seats on the total London City network than it did in the same period this year. There will be 400 flights a week in British Airways colours from London City Airport.

 

Luke Hayhoe, commercial manager BA CityFlyer, said:  “We recently announced that we had taken up options on two additional aircraft for our brand new Embraer fleet and this is giving us more opportunity to add destinations, frequency and capacity to our network.

 

‘’We have responded to customer demand adding additional frequency and improving departure times to our existing Amsterdam, Edinburgh and Glasgow routes. In addition to this the Palma and Ibiza routes launched this year have proved so popular that we decided to venture further into the summer sun market.  There is clearly a large demand for leisure travel from London City and it’s a growing market’’ 

 

The final 98-seat Embraer 190 aircraft will be delivered to British Airways in June next year, bringing the fleet total to 13 aircraft.

 

Richard Gooding OBE, chief executive of London City Airport added: “It is great to see the continued growth of British Airways at London City. The 40% increase in seating capacity offers our passengers more choice and greater flexibility, while the new route announcements to Malaga and Faro further enhance our leisure offerings.”
