British Airways is increasing service for leisure travellers from London City Airport with the launch of two new routes from the Docklands airport to Malaga and Faro in June and more frequency to Nice, Palma and Ibiza, all operated by BA CityFlyer.
The four-times-a-week flights to Faro start on 7 June and the three-times-a-week flights to Malaga start on 8 June. Both routes will operate year round.
The existing Nice service will increase to double-daily flights from May until September, and from July to September both Palma and Ibiza flights will be increased from four a week to 10 a week.
BA CityFlyer will operate the services with Embraer 170 and 190 aircraft.
“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,” explained Luke Hayhoe, BA CityFlyer commercial manager. “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.”
