BA Introduce More Aircraft and More Routes For London City Airport

19/10/2010

British Airways is taking up options for two new Embraer E-190 jets, one year after the first aircraft in the new fleet went into service, and is launching a new double daily service to Stockholm from London City Airport.

BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned subsidiary of British Airways, originally placed firm orders for six Embraer 170 and five Embraer 190SR efficiency jets, known as E-jets, with options on three further 98-seat Embraer 190s.

They are now converting two of these options for delivery in Spring 2011.

Peter Simpson, BA CityFlyer managing director, said: “We are delighted to announce the conversion of these two options, which will increase our fleet size by almost 20 per cent at London City Airport.. Customer feedback to the new fleet has been fantastic, particularly with the additional space and two-by-two seating. The successful fleet introduction and customer reaction to the  E-Jets has given us the confidence to expand so soon after the initial order.”

The two additional aircraft will enable British Airways to expand its route network from the Docklands airport with a new service to Stockholm Arlanda from January 9 2011.  They are currently in discussions with various airports for opportunities with the second aircraft.

Luke Hayhoe, BA CityFlyer commercial manager, said: “We were always hopeful of taking up options for the larger Embraer 190s and are delighted to confirm this. This does of course present opportunities for us to further expand our London City schedule. The success of our recently launched Copenhagen service and customer requests made the decision on Stockholm an exciting choice. We will announce further new services in the coming months. ”

One way all inclusive London City-Stockholm fares from £65 are available to book on www.ba.com. Great value holiday packages are also available on ba.com/stockholm. The 4* Sheraton, Stockholm costs from £180 per room per night (accommodation only) based on January 2011 departures and 4* Stureplan, Stockholm costs from £137 per room per night (accommodation with breakfast) based on January 2011 departures.
