BA to Fly New Short-Haul Routes from London

On March 30, British Airways will launch short-haul service from three London airports to various destinations across Europe. The carrier is starting flights from Heathrow to Malaga, Spain, and from Gatwick to Alicante, Ibiza, Malaga and Palma in Spain; Faro, Portugal; Gibraltar; and the republic of Tunis. BA Cityflyer, the airline's subsidiary, will launch flights from London City airport to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Nice and Warsaw.

"We are opening up these Mediterranean hotspots with our new flights and are confident that, with our full onboard service and low prices, they will be very popular with customers," said Robert Boyle, British Airways, commercial director. "BA Cityflyer's operation at London City airport continues to go from strength to strength and from next summer will operate to nine destinations in the U.K. and Europe."

The added service will coincide with the suspension of BA's flights from Gatwick to Aberdeen, Scotland; Nice, France; Prague; Reykjavik, Iceland; and Split, Croatia. It will also suspend service to Italy's Milan Malpensa airport from London City. Visit www.britishairways.com. (JM)
