British Airways London City to Palma Route proves too popular

British Airways London City to Palma Route proves too popular.

The demand for seating on British Airways’ London City to Palma service is proving so popular that the airline has had to increase the flights and use larger aircraft to meet the demand this summer.

With extra flights and bigger aircraft the airline will provide more than 25,000 seats to the Spanish holiday island direct from the Docklands. This will make holidays to Palma de Mallorca more accessible to UK travelers than ever before.

Due to the high early season demand, the normal three-times-a-week flights will fly six-days-a-week, excluding Saturdays, during July and August. The Friday and Sunday flights to Palma de Mallorca and Ibiza, on brand-new Embraer 190 aircraft, will continue until October 31st, enabling a long weekend or longer breaks. The extension also means flights will operate until the end of the school half-term holidays.

For relaxing beach holidays in Palma de Mallorca British Airways offers over 40 beach hotels including the 3* Manaus for the lighter pocket to the 5* Cap Rocat – a magnificent former military fortress with an infinity pool and private beach. City breaks in Palma are also a popular choice. British Airways has a range of city hotels including the 4* Catalonia Majorica just 10 minutes stroll from the Harbour, or the 5* Hospes Maricel – a historic stately mansion.

British Airways now operates 39 leisure flights from London City to top sun destinations this summer. The airline has also added more frequency to popular destinations of Nice and Ibiza.

Holidays in Ibiza are perfect for families with secluded coves and family resorts while Ibiza Town has several ancient sites and party venues.

British Airways has also launched new routes to Faro and Malaga in June, all from London City. The four times-a-week flights to Faro start on June 7 and the three times-a-week flights to Malaga start on June 8. Both routes will operate year round.

British Airways flies to 12 destinations from London City airport including Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, Faro, Barcelona, Nice, Madrid and Malaga. Flights are operated by wholly owned British Airways’ subsidiary BA CityFlyer.
