Trying to ride on a possible release to travel, British Airways at London City Airport is preparing to launch two new routes.
The airline will serve both Gibraltar and Jersey from the 25th June 2021, initially over the summer period and flying two flights a week on Mondays and Fridays.
This should be useful for those who are travelling for business, holidays or hose visiting friends – as well as the all-important cargo.
As usual, the routes out of London City Airport will be operated by BA Cityflyer – the British Airways subsidiary based out of the airport. British Airways will continue to operate its current services to Jersey and Gibraltar alongside these new London City services.
They will utilise a two-class Embraer E190 on these routes, featuring 2-2 seating in both Club Europe and EuroTraveller on the route.
Lead-in fares start from just £42 to Jersey and £43 to Gibraltar each way, with booking now open for these routes.
Tom Stoddart, Managing Director of BA CityFlyer, said:
“It’s great to be able to launch these two new services to Gibraltar and Jersey – it’s something customers have been asking us to do for quite a while. Whether it’s for a holiday or visiting friends or relatives who live either end of route when the time is right, customers will benefit from direct flights to and from the extremely conveniently located London City Airport.”
Minister for Business, Tourism, Transport and the Port of Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar the Hon Vijay Daryanani MP said:
“This is excellent news and continues to show the confidence that the industry has in Gibraltar as a destination. A seasonal link with London City Airport operated by BA CityFlyer brings yet another operator to Gibraltar and opens up a further catchment area from the UK. This service will complement BA’s mainline services from Heathrow and the local business and financial services community will undoubtedly welcome a link to London’s financial district. Our tourism, retail and hospitality industries can also look forward to greeting customers from the City and the east London catchment area.”
Matt Thomas, Ports of Jersey, Group CEO, said:
“We are delighted to see the Island once again connected to London City and look forward to working alongside BA Cityflyer. We understand the importance of connectivity to London’s financial centre, as well as for Islanders wanting easy access to central London, or to take advantage of the many onward connections available.”
