London City Airport receives new BA routes

Thu, 09 Dec, 2010

British Airways (BA) has announced plans to extend its route network by adding services from London City Airport.

As of next June, travellers will be able to take direct flights to Malaga and Faro three and four times a week, respectively.

The Dutch capital of Amsterdam is also set to receive additional services, with BA boosting the number of planes travelling there to six per day.

These new routes will all be administered by BA subsidiary, BA CityFlyer.

Commercial manager of the company Luke Hayhoe claimed these latest additions have been scheduled to cope with increasing demand from consumers.

"There is clearly a large demand for leisure travel from London City and it's a growing market," he said.

Extra services will also be put on for flights to Chamberry in France and the Swedish capital of Stockholm.

Earlier in the month, BA revealed its top ten travel tips for 2011 and named the US, Caribbean and Indian Ocean as some of next year's most popular destinations.
