The new British Airways flights to the Balearic Islands of Mallorca and Ibiza, operated by BA CityFlyer, are to be extended until the end of October.
Originally the summer-only flights, which launched in May, were due to end in September, but due to their popularity British Airways has decided to extend the season for a further five weeks.
The Friday and Sunday flights to Mallorca and Ibiza, on brand new Embraer 190s, will continue until 31 October, enabling a long weekend or longer breaks. The extension also means flights will operate until the end of the school half-term holidays.
Luke Hayhoe, commercial manager for BA CityFlyer, commented, “These leisure routes have really taken off from London City. They proved so popular that we have already increased frequency to Mallorca to five flights a week and to Ibiza to four flights a week in July and August. Now we have the opportunity to extend the season and customers can enjoy some late sun with the excellent autumn climate that the Balearic Islands can offer.”
