British Airways is extending its popular Palma and Ibiza flights from London City Airport to a year-round service, operated by BACityFlyer.
At present the two Balearic Island destinations are summer-only routes, but from October they will continue through the winter with two flights a week on Thursdays and Sundays. The news will come as a welcome boost to Ibiza as the island does not currently have a single direct service to the UK during the winter.
The two islands are very popular with leisure customers through the summer now winter sun seekers and second-home owners have the chance to fly there throughout the year.
“Leisure flying is a really important part of our business now from London City,” explained Luke Hayhoe, general manager commercial, BA CityFlyer. “Winter sun breaks are a very popular market and with London City’s unique 20 minute check-in time with luggage, customers can leave the gloom of winter and be in the sun in less than three hours.”
