A brand new service out of London City Airport to Bergerac has been launched by British Airways this week.
The exciting new flight will provide an easy and convenient route between London and the popular wine making Dordogne region in just two and a half hours.
The service will operate throughout the summer months – flying four times a week in the peak summer months until September.
Currently the service will operate three times a week – flying on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays; then from 23rd June an additional service will be added, flying on Thursdays.
And to celebrate, the airline brought a Citroen 2CV to the airport to celebrate all things French – the iconic vehicle certainly raised some eyebrows from passengers waiting to board the maiden flight, which would take 12 hours to do the very same journey!
Fares start from £57 and include a generous hand luggage allowance, as well as complimentary food and drinks onboard.
Speaking about the new service, British Airways’ General Manager Commercial and Customer, at London City Airport, Luke Hayhoe, said, “The Dordogne epitomises the French rural escape – castles, heritage, rolling hills, vineyards, food markets, gastronomy and wine. We launched the new route with a guest appearance from the Citroen as we wanted to evoke that sense of adventure and bring a bit of Bergerac to London City.”
