BA adds winter routes from London City

Iceland - Northern Lights

British Airways is to add new routes from London City to three European capital cities for the winter 2017/8 season.

BA is to introduce flights from the Docklands-based airport to Paris Orly, Prague and Reykjavik from late October.

The Orly service, which will operate three times per day on weekdays and daily at weekends, is being transferred from Heathrow to London City from October 29. BA’s flights to Paris Charles De Gaulle will continue to operate from Heathrow.

The new twice-weekly London City-Reykjavik route will be winter-only, replacing BA’s Granada service which will switch to being a summer-only destination. The London-City Prague route will run six times per week.

Luke Hayhoe, BA’s general manager customer and commercial, said: “Paris and Prague are two great additions to our schedule at London City.

“Well timed flights and a quick and easy journey through the airport will give business customers another option to reach either capital city.

“Reykjavik is a leisure route, and gateway to some of the most dramatic scenery and skiing that Iceland has to offer.”

The new routes will be served using Embraer jets featuring both economy and Club Europe cabins.
