BA adds flights from London City


British Airways is to double its weekday services between London City and Milan Linate and add a new weekday service to Frankfurt from January.

In addition there will be new summer services from Manchester and Edinburgh to Florence and a weekly service between Manchester and Dublin.

The announcement comes just a week after BA unveiled that summer 2018 would bring more flights from Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol.

The extra flights are being made possible with the arrival of two new 98-seat Embraer 190 aircraft in January and April 2018, bringing the total fleet number to 22.

The airline is also recruiting 20 new pilots and 20 cabin crew.

Luke Hayhoe, British Airways' general manager customer and commercial, said: ""This year we have almost doubled the number of routes we operate compared to last year and the winter season brings a further five new routes, London City to Paris Orly, Prague and Reykjavik and Manchester to Chambery and Salzburg ahead of the new routes next summer."
