British Airways has announced three new routes from London City Airport starting in October 2017.
The new destinations are Reykjavik, Paris Orly and Prague.
This is especially interesting as it means more Avios redemption seats became available yesterday to these cities. If you had previously struggled to find seats to Prague or Reykjavik for a pre-Christmas shopping or tourist trip, you should look again.
Reykjavik will be a winter only flight replacing the service to Granada in Spain. Granada will continue as Summer route in 2018. There will be two flights per week.
The Paris Orly flight will move from Heathrow to London City on 29th October. Passengers booked on the Heathrow flights will be transferred automatically but can get a full refund on request. This flight will operate a similar timetable as the former Heathrow service – three flights a day during the week and one a day at weekends
The Prague flight will run 6 times per week.
All three destinations will be operated on an Embraer jet with Club Europe and Euro Traveller. As with all BA flights from London City, passengers in Euro Traveller will get complimentary drinks and food – there is no still no date for the introduction of ‘buy on board’.
Flights went on sale yesterday, both for cash and Avios, and can be booked via ba.com.
