British Airways has launched thrice daily flights
from London City Airport to the
Bavarian beer capital of Munich.
British Airways now offers
four German routes from London City, with each-way hand baggage
only fares to Munich from £64 based on a return journey.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and
customer, 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.”
Earlier this year, British Airways increased frequency to
Berlin from the Docklands airport to 18 return flights a week.
Richard Hill, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport,
said: “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
British Airways is investing £6.5
