British Airways has launched yet another new route out of London City Airport.
The airline will be operating a four times a week service out of the London Docklands airport to the Spanish Costa Blanca holiday hot spot.
The new Alicante service by BA, from London City Airport, will see the airline fly to 63 times each week across seven different Spanish destinations.
And so, as both England and Spain bow out of Euro 16, what better time to jet off for some Spanish sun in just two and a half hours?
Speaking about the new service, Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ General Manager Commercial and Customer, London City, said: “While everyone is still getting over the disappointment of our exit from the football finals this is a fantastic opportunity to escape the disappointment – and the British weather – and head off to sunny Spain. We are delighted to be able to provide direct services from London City to one of the most popular tourist regions of Spain for the first time.”
Whilst Matthew Hall, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport, added, “Alicante is the gateway to a stunning part of the Spanish Mediterranean and an excellent addition to our offer of leisure destinations this summer. From the conveniently located London City Airport, passengers can escape on this British Airways service to the buzz of balmy nightlife and café culture or the relaxation of Costa Blanca beaches and a round of golf.”
