British Airways is to create 30 new positions at London City Airport as it increases its frequencies from the London airport, and introduces a new, larger, aircraft.
With the introduction of the Embraer 190 aircraft, from May, on its London City to Dusseldorf service, which flies three times a day, the service will increase to 14 extra flights per week.
What’s more, the airline is also increasing its other popular routes from London City. It will increase its summer schedule flights next year to Nice with three additional flights. It will also increase its Faro, Florence, Ibiza and Angers operations by two flights a week, and Palma, Quimper and Venice operations will be increased by one flight a week.
As a result of the flight increases, the airline will be offering a 30% increase in its European routes out of the airport.
Speaking about the increased routes, Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer at London City, said: “The addition of the extra aircraft means we are able to meet the demands of our customers at London City who want more flights and a great schedule to some of their favourite holiday destinations. It also means we can create up to 30 permanent jobs at the airport.”
