CRAWLEY, England – British Airways has announced the launch of two new routes to Faro and Malaga and added more frequency to the popular destinations of Nice, Palma and Ibiza. This means that British Airways now offers 39 leisure flights per week for this summer from London City Airport to top sun destinations at the height of the season.
The four times a week flights to Faro and the three times a week flights to Malaga are now both in operation and will operate year round.
The existing Nice service has been increased to double daily flights from May until September, and from July to September both Palma and Ibiza flights will be increased from four to ten a week.
Flights are operated by the wholly owned British Airways’ subsidiary BA CityFlyer on the new Embraer 170 and 190 aircraft.
Luke Hayhoe, BA CityFlyer commercial manager said: “We first launched leisure only flights from London City last year in direct response to demand from our customers. They proved so popular, particularly during the summer months that we have decided to expand them further this year.
“The addition of two extra aircraft to the fleet means we can also offer year round services to the summer and winter sun destinations of Malaga and Faro.”
