In a slightly left field move, British Airways has announced the launch of two new ‘Summer sun’ routes from London City Airport.
From June 29th until September 6th, British Airways will be offering:
four flights per week to Mykonos
two flights per week to Santorini
As these are City routes, they will be operated by BA CityFlyer using its fleet of Embraer planes. I’m not sure how comfortable these will be for a four hour flight, to be honest.
The existing services from Heathrow to Mykonos and Santorini appear to be continuing.
Cash and redemption seats are already available at ba.com although I could not find any Club Europe availability, only EuroTraveller.
That said, as there is no lounge at London City, the legroom is the same in all seats and there is no ’empty middle seat’ benefit (Embraer seating is 2×2) you don’t miss much if you are down the back!
