Summer sun routes extended from London City Airport
Friday 11, June 2010
There’s more good news for passengers wishing to jet away from London City Airport on the new British Airways flights to the Balearic Islands this autumn. The airline has announced that it is to extend its new flights to Mallorca and Ibiza until the end of October.
Originally the summer-only flights, which launched in May, were due to end in September, but due to their popularity British Airways has decided to extend the season for a further five weeks.
The Friday and Sunday flights to Mallorca and Ibiza, on brand new Embraer 190 aircraft, will continue until October 31, enabling a long weekend or longer breaks. The extension also means flights will operate until the end of the school half term holidays.
Both routes are also included in the British Airways premium leisure sale which launches today, with return all-inclusive Club Europe fares available for £299 on ba.com
Luke Hayhoe, commercial manager for BA CityFlyer, the wholly owned British Airways subsidiary who operate the service, said: “These leisure routes have really taken off from London City, they proved so popular that we have already increased frequency to Mallorca to five flights a week and to Ibiza to four flights a week in July and August.
“Now we have the opportunity to extend the season and customers can enjoy some late sun with the excellent autumn climate that the Balearic Islands can offer.”
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.
