British Airways has launched its first flights to Guernsey.
As well as the new British Airways mainline flights announced this morning, BA CityFlyer has also announced some changes.
BA CityFlyer is the stand-alone British Airways business which runs the Embraer fleet from London City Airport. As London City Airport closes for 24 hours over the weekend, the airline uses the aircraft for an ever-changing variety of routes from other UK airports.
This is what was announced today. The airport code for Guernsey is GCI for readers who prefer to search for flights that way.
From London City
