British Airways launches new summer routes to Italy and Spain from Birmingham and Bristol

british-airwaysFrom May, British Airways will begin direct flights from Birmingham and Bristol to popular Spanish destinations of Ibiza, Malaga and Palma and to the Italian city of Florence.

 

BA will operate on modern Embraer 190 jet aircraft, with spacious cabins and two abreast seating, so that every customer can have an aisle or window seat.

 

Ten years ago, BA ended almost all flights that did not begin or end in London, with the sale of its regional operations to Flybe.

 

But following the recent decision to operate weekend flights from Manchester destinations, the airline is to offer a similar service from Birmingham and Bristol.

 

Airport bosses see the move as a hopeful sign of further expansion by BA.

 

David Winstanley, Chief Operating Officer for Birmingham said that, British Airways returning to Birmingham is not only great news for the airport but also the Midlands region and it is the beginning of a long-term growth plan with the airline.

 

Robert Sinclair, Bristol airport’s Chief Executive said that, they are delighted to announce the return of the iconic brand British Airways to Bristol Airport.

 

Ryanair has begun flights from Aberdeen to Alicante and Malaga. And easyJet has announced a new summer link from Luton to Zadar on the Croatian coast.
