British Airways returns to London Stansted with flights to three holiday hotspots

BA CityFlyer will operate flights to Nice, Florence, and Ibiza on Saturdays and Sundays using Embraer 190 aircraft with Club Europe and Euro Traveller cabins. Sunday's first flight to Nice is pictured preparing for departure

Flag carrier British Airways has launched new routes between London Stansted and three popular holiday destinations.

Flights to Nice, Florence, and Ibiza will be operated by BA CityFlyer on Saturdays and Sundays using Embraer 190 aircraft with Club Europe and Euro Traveller cabins.

The airline also recently announced that it will launch a new route to Split in Croatia from September and continue its weekly Sunday charter between Stansted and Calvi this summer in conjunction with Corsican Places.

This will be the first time that British Airways has offered scheduled flights from London Stansted since before the global pandemic, and it’s the fourth London airport to be served by the flag carrier.

The first flight took to the skies on Sunday (May 19) to Florence at 7.40am, followed by the Nice departure at 8.35am and the lunchtime service to Ibiza at 3pm.

Ciaran Brannigan, London Stansted’s Commercial Director, said: “London Stansted serves more European destinations than any other UK airport and these new services to Ibiza, Florence and Nice are strong additions to our route network, which now covers over 200 destinations across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

“I’m sure these routes will be very popular with passengers from across London, Cambridge and the growing East of England region.

“We look forward to working closely with British Airways to build a strong working relationship and ensure these new flights are a success.”
