Increasing flights to Spain
Tuesday 2, March 2010
British Airways is adding to its Spanish routes portfolio from London City Airport with the re-launch of year-round flights to Barcelona.
The previously summer only service resumes at the end of March and will continue through the summer and winter.
In addition an extra Saturday morning service will be introduced in May, bringing the total number of flights to seven per week. One-way all inclusive fares are available from £63 on ba.com
British Airways is also launching new services to Majorca and Ibiza in May and currently operates flights to the Spanish capital of Madrid.
Luke Hayhoe, commercial manager for BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned British Airways subsidiary who will operate the service, said: "The Spanish destinations are proving extremely popular from London City Airport Barcelona has traditionally operated as a summer only destination but there is a big demand from both business and leisure passengers for us to continue through the winter."
The British Airways flights include complimentary food and drinks on board, free on-line check-in and seat selection 24-hours before departure and free baggage allowance.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
