BA to launch London City to Dublin service

Fri, 25 Apr, 2008

British Airways has announced plans for its BA CityFlyer subsidiary to launch a new service from London City Airport to Dublin on June 1st.

The route between the two capitals will operate three times a day, with seats available from £55 one way, including taxes.

BA CityFlyer's managing director Peter Simpson predicted the new service would prove popular with business travellers.

"Dublin is an important new route linking two financial capitals and we are delighted to be able to offer a three-a-day service in direct response to passenger demand," he said.

The airline has also revealed plans to increase the number of flights it operates from London City Airport to the French city of Nice and the Scottish capital Edinburgh in September.

British Airways recently announced plans to expand its own services from the Docklands site by launching a business class-only route to New York next year.
