New Spanish Route from London City

31/03/2016

British Airways is to launch a new leisure service to Alicante from London City to cover the busy holiday season this summer.

The new flights to the heart of Spain’s Costa Blanca will operate four times a week for 10 weeks from the end of June.

It will be the seventh Spanish route for British Airways at London City, where flights already operate to Madrid, Malaga, Palma, Ibiza and Menorca in addition to Granada, which is the only direct air link from the UK to the Andalucian airport.

In July and August British Airways will offer over 170,000 leisure seats to Europe from London City, 40,000 more than last summer, and will operate an extra 433 flights. On the busiest days there will be over 20 leisure flights a day.

The introduction of the new service means there will be 33 destinations served in British Airways colours direct from the Docklands where the airline is also launching new services to Berlin and Hamburg this summer.

A new 98-seat Embraer 190 jet will arrive at London City in June, the 20th Embraer aircraft to join the British Airways fleet there.

Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer, London City, said: “The Spanish Costas are still one of the most sought after holiday destinations for British holiday makers and our new service means they can travel from the heart of London to Alicante in just two and a half hours.”

All British Airways flights include a choice of two cabins, Club Europe and Eurotraveller, complimentary refreshments and drinks on board and no debit card charges.
