The carrier will increase the frequency of its LCY-Dusseldorf service from three to four times-daily, starting from October 30. It would also roster its 76-seat Embraer 170 aircraft onto both the Hamburg and Dusseldorf routes, replacing the smaller Saab 2000 turboprop.
British Airways said that this move would double capacity to Hamburg on its three daily flights. It will also increase seats on its Dusseldorf service by 33 per cent.
Earlier this year, the carrier launched flights from London City to Berlin and it also flies from LCY to the German cities of Frankfurt and Bremen.
With the announcement of the additional services, British Airways will operate up to 85 flights per week between London City and Germany.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer, London City, said that Germany is an exceptionally fast growing market and that BA is delighted to increase the schedule with new services to Berlin and Hamburg. With a larger aircraft fleet, BA can be more flexible and add the additional frequencies that customers have asked for.
