I must admit, I did a major double-take when I received this press release! It is true, however.
British Airways – the airline that does not run a single flight with a non-London origin or destination – is launching an Edinburgh to Ibiza service for the Summer.
When you look at the flight times, which are shocking, you will see how they are doing it.
Outbound (Wednesday, Friday, Sunday) it will depart Edinburgh at 22.35, arriving in Ibiza at 02.35.
It will then turnaround, so the inbound will run Thursday, Saturday and Monday, leaving Ibiza at 03.35 and arriving at Edinburgh at 05.40.
The planes which makes the last trip to Edinburgh in the evening (and the first flight to London in the morning) will therefore be going on a little diversion instead of sitting on the tarmac.
Let’s hope the cleaners have time to get to it before the first of the business travellers get on board …..!
The first flight is on 23rd May and the service will run through to 8th September. Club Europe seats are available, and frankly you may be glad of one. No idea what the on-board meal service is for 03.35 departures!
