British Airways has decided to launch a summer schedule directly connecting the south-coast of England with popular holiday destinations in Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece, France and Germany. Under a new agreement with Southampton Airport, the airline will operate up to 17 flights each weekend to 11 locations between May and October.
The seasonal arrangement will run alongside existing services from London City Airport and enhance British Airways’ U.K. regional network. Tom Stoddart, Managing Director, BA CityFlyer, which will operate the new services, said in a statement that the airline is delighted to announce the extension of its services to Southampton Airport next summer.
He shared that the ideal location of the airport and excellent facilities on offer will hugely benefit the customers along the south coast as they plan to take to the skies again and book a well-deserved holiday in the sun and mentioned that it is an exciting opportunity for the British Airways family.
Steve Szalay, Operations Director, Southampton Airport added that the announcement is a fantastic news for Southampton Airport and the region during what has been the most challenging of years. He mentioned that is also great to witness BA return to the airport once again and shared that the range of excellent destinations on offer is sure to be a welcome early Christmas present for passengers looking to plan a European holiday next summer.
