British Airways has recently announced plans to launch two new routes to Jersey and Gibraltar from London City Airport.
The new routes will be launch on June 25, 2021. The airline will operate two flights a week to Jersey and Gibraltar – on Mondays and Fridays – offering key air links for business travellers, holiday makers and other travellers as regulations ease. With fares starting from £42 to Jersey and £43 to Gibraltar each way, customers can book via ba.com.
Tom Stoddart, Managing Director of BA CityFlyer, which will operate the new services, said: ‘It’s great to be able to launch these two new services to Gibraltar and Jersey – it’s something customers have been asking us to do for quite a while. Whether it’s 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, Transport and the Port of Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar the Hon Vijay Daryanani MP said: ‘This is excellent news and continues to show the confidence that the industry has in Gibraltar as a destination. 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. This 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. Our tourism, retail and hospitality industries can also look forward to greeting customers from the City and the east London catchment area.’
Matt Thomas, Ports of Jersey, Group CEO, added: ‘We are delighted to see the Island once again connected to London City and look forward to working alongside BA Cityflyer. We understand the importance of connectivity to London’s financial centre, as well as for Islanders wanting easy access to central London, or to take advantage of the many onward connections available.’
Both flights will be operated by BA CityFlyer’s Embraer E190 aircraft. British Airways offers flexible booking policy, offering customers no change fees or a voucher exchange for bookings made for travel before the end of April 2022, allowing for options if plans change.
