British Airways is trebling flights between London City and Geneva and making it a year-round service.
The current five-a-week schedule from the Docklands airport is a winter only leisure route, which is very popular with skiers and winter sports enthusiasts.
From September 6 it will increase to up to three flights a day with an excellent schedule aimed at business customers. Flights will depart London City at 08:15, 14:15 and 18:50 and depart Geneva at 07:10,12:55 and 17:45.
Morning and evening departures from both cities means customers will be able to do a full day’s business in both Geneva and London.
The new flights go on sale today (May 13).
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial, London City, said: “Geneva has traditionally been a leisure route for us from London City but more and more of our customers have been asking us to provide a year-round business schedule, linking these two important commercial centres and complimenting the services we offer from London Heathrow.”
Travellers have a quick and easy journey through London City Airport and with hand baggage only they can move from kerbside to airside in just 15 minutes.
British Airways fares include a generous free hand baggage allowance, free seat selection and check-in 24 hours before departure, complimentary hot meals and drinks on board.
The size of London City Airport means customers do not need to arrive as early as they do at most other airports. They have to pass through check-in 20 minutes before their flight if checking in baggage, or 15 minutes before with hand baggage only. Customers must be at the boarding gate at least 10 minutes before their flight.
