BA: Extra frequency on new Spanish routes from London City Airport

13/01/2010

British Airways is to increase peak season frequency on its new services to Majorca and Ibiza, less than a month after announcing the launch of the new routes from London City Airport.

The new services to the Balearic Islands direct from the Docklands will take off in May 2010.

But the destinations are proving so popular that British Airways is now planning to increase the schedule from three to five flights a week to Palma and from three to four flights a week to Ibiza during July and August.

Passengers who book on www.ba.com before January 26 can also take advantage of the BA sale, with one way all-inclusive fares for £61.

Travelling direct from London City on the brand new Embraer 190 aircraft, passengers can be on the beach in the Balearics is less than three hours.

It’s the first time British Airways has operated leisure only flights from London City Airport but there is a growing demand for flights to the sun, particularly with customers looking for short breaks.

The initial three-times-a-week service will operate on Friday, Sunday and Monday, offering an ideal schedule for passengers looking for a weekend or longer break. The extra Majorca flights will operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the extra Ibiza flights on Wednesdays.

Luke Hayhoe, commercial manager for BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned British Airways subsidiary who will operate the service, said: “We are delighted with the response from passengers and our forward bookings demonstrate their commitment to these new leisure routes. It was always our intention to increase the frequency if the demand was there, now less than a month after announcing the new routes we can fulfil that promise.”

British Airways is also increasing frequency to Edinburgh from London City, with seven flights a day from capital to capital from March 29. One way all-inclusive fares from London City are £51.
The British Airways flights include complimentary food and drinks on board, free on-line check-in and seat selection 24-hours before departure and free baggage allowance.
