British Airways recently announced the launch of two new routes to Jersey and Gibraltar from London City Airport. Operating initially over the summer period, the routes will launch on June 25. Two flights a week will operate to Jersey and Gibraltar on Mondays and Fridays offering important air links for business travellers, holiday makers and those visiting friends and relatives as regulations ease, including cargo.
Both flights will be operated by BA CityFlyer’s Embraer E190 aircraft. Tom Stoddart, Managing Director, BA CityFlyer, which will operate the new services, said in a statement that it is great to be able to launch the two new services to Gibraltar and Jersey as it is something customers have been asking for quite a while. He mentioned that whether it is for a holiday or visiting friends or relatives who live either end of route when the time is right, customers will benefit from direct flights to and from the extremely conveniently located London City Airport.
Minister for Business, Tourism, and Transport Vijay Daryanani added that it is excellent news and continues to show the confidence that the industry has in Gibraltar as a destination. He said that a seasonal link with London City Airport operated by BA CityFlyer brings yet another operator to Gibraltar and opens up a further catchment area from the UK. He shared that the service will complement BA’s mainline services from Heathrow and the local business and financial services community will undoubtedly welcome a link to London’s financial district.
