Tue, 27 Nov, 2007

British Airways (BA) has announced it is to launch 12 new short-haul services to holiday destinations from London next March.

Daily flights to the Spanish resort of Malaga from London Heathrow Airport are scheduled to commence on March 30th, the same date as seven new routes from London Gatwick Airport are due to open.

They will fly to Gibraltar, the Portuguese city of Faro, the Tunisian capital Tunis and the Spanish holiday hotspots of Alicante, Ibiza, Malaga and Palma.

All those services will operate at least once a day, apart from the five times a week flights to Tunis.

BA is also extending its operations from London City Airport through its Cityflyer subsidiary, which is to launch daily services to the Polish capital Warsaw, the Catalan city of Barcelona, the Dutch city of Amsterdam and the French resort of Nice.

The airline recently announced that it is increasing its fuel surcharge on short-haul flights to £10 per flight for all tickets booked after November 15th 2007.
