The airline will operate a daily week day service from Ronaldsway to London City Airport from 28 May 2012.Â This will increase to three flights each week day plus one on Saturdays and two on Sundays from 25 June.
The new service will give customers easy access to the commercial centre of London and also allow them to connect with 22 British Airways destinations served from the Docklands airport, including Frankfurt, Zurich and New York.
One way all inclusive fares from the Isle of Man to London City are available from Â£59.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways general manager commercial, said: â€œWe are delighted that British Airways will be back in the Isle of Man with the launch of this new important air link from the Island.Â Our schedule means that customers can enjoy a full business day with conveniently timed flights direct to the heart of the capital or they can easily connect with our onward services.â€
Isle of Man airport director, Ann Reynolds said: â€œI know that Island residents, will be very happy to see British Airways back on the Isle of Man, especially on such a vital business link to the City of London.â€
