More new flights from London City Airport........expansion to route network for BA CityFlyer

Whilst British Airways may be consolidating its North American route offering at the moment, the carrier is expanding services offered from London City Airport to key European markets. 
The British Airways subsidiary  BA CityFlyer is launching four new routes across Europe as well as reinstating services to the Channel Islands. 

New routes include Luxembourg and Milan starting from 27 March and will operate daily. In June the carrier will start a weekly rotation to Thessaloniki every Saturday and from 19th June a service to Barcelona will start operating six days a week. 

Routes to Jersey and Guernsey are also returning following the launch in Summer 2021.  Flights will operate on Monday and Friday from 20 June to 2 September.  

Tom Stoddart, Managing Director of BA CityFlyer, which will operate the new services, said: “As customers start to plan their next summer getaway, we wanted to offer new routes to some of the most popular European destinations.  Conveniently accessible from London City airport, they are a great addition to our extensive network.”

The flights are all scheduled to be operated by the airline's E190 aircraft, a narrow-body, twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by the Brazilian aerospace company, Embraer. BA CityFlyer operates these aircraft to the bulk of its destinations from London City Airport. 

The aircraft is a low wing design with engines mounted below the wings which are fitted with winglets, which reduces the drag and provides increased lift and improved efficiency. The high-performance, high-efficiency engines are very quiet and the aircraft exceeds the noise and emission-related requirements established by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
