British Airways has launched a new three times a day route from London City Airport to Munich Airport adding to the increased frequency the carrier started from the same airport this year to Berlin – which it now serves 18 times a week.
British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer, Luke Hayhoe said: “Germany is such an important destination for both business and leisure customers, so the addition of Munich to our schedule has been welcomed by everyone who flies from London City. With well-timed frequent flights there are plenty of options for customers who either want to do a day trip or stay for longer.
“Munich complements our existing flights to Berlin, Dusseldorf and Frankfurt and means that we now fly 82 return flights a week to Germany this winter. The new route will increase the number of British Airways’ destinations from London City Airport to 34.”
London City Airport chief commercial officer, Richard Hill added: “Munich is a German powerhouse of a city, attracting leisure and business travellers alike. Its gaining popularity is reflected in the frequency of this new three-times-a-day British Airways service, which makes travel between Munich and the centre of London easier and quicker thanks to the convenience of London City Airport.
“It’s not just the world-famous Oktoberfest that brings thousands of visitors to explore Munich. Alongside the city’s beer halls are public parks, historic architecture, and a leading centre for business – home to globally recognised firms. Through British Airways’ continued growth at its London City base, we are keeping London connected to Europe – enabling trade and tourism in both directions.”
British Airways is investing £6.5 billion to improve its customer experience over the next five years, including new aircraft, new cabins, new catering, new lounges, WiFi, and new routes.
