A feast of new flights from London City

23/05/2012

British Airways is serving up a feast of six new flights from London City Airport this summer with the first of the new services taking off to Mahon in Menorca on Friday (May 25).

Other new culinary capitals served direct from the Docklands will include Angers in the Loire Valley, Quimper in Brittany, Venice in Italy, the Isle of Man and Aberdeen

All the well timed morning departures mean customers can be in each of the new destinations in time to enjoy one of their local specialty food dishes.

So whether it’s Menorcan cheese, Loire Valley wine, Quimper shell fish, Venetian ice cream, Manx kippers or Aberdeen Angus steak there’s plenty of choice for lunch.

The addition of the new routes means a total of 23 destinations in the UK, Europe and the USA will be served by British Airways from London City Airport. As the airline continues to grow its network customers have more choice to more business and leisure destinations, flying on one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the business.

Luke Hayhoe, general manager commercial said: “We are very excited about the launch of the new routes, most of which are completely new destinations for London City Airport and offer our customers even more holiday choices . We’re sure that these new routes coupled with British Airways’ all inclusive fares and London City’s unique 20 minute check-in time with luggage will be a hit this summer.”

British Airways offers all inclusive fares to all destinations, which include a generous free 23kg luggage allowance, free on-line check-in and seat selection 24 hours before departure and complimentary food and drink on board.
