British Airways has started operating a seasonal service between London City and Bergerac, providing the first direct link between the pair.
The route will operate up to four times a week until September. Luke Hayhoe, BA’s general manager commercial and customer, London City Airport, remarked, “The Dordogne epitomises the French rural escape – castles, heritage, rolling hills, vineyards, food markets, gastronomy and wine. We launched the new route with a guest appearance from the Citroen as we wanted to evoke that sense of adventure and bring a bit of Bergerac to London City.”
Matthew Hall, CCO at London City Airport, continued, “British Airways’ new leisure route to Bergerac from London City is an excellent addition to our network, opening up the Dordogne for passengers who want to escape to the French sun quickly and conveniently from the only airport actually in London. The seasonal service builds on our existing French routes and provides greater choice for those planning a long weekend of exploration or a short break in vineyard country.”
