British Airways Launches Flights From London City to Jersey and Gibraltar
British Airways will launch two new routes from London City to Jersey and Gibraltar from June 25, 2021. The carrier will offer two weekly flights to each destination which will operate on Mondays and Fridays.
On Thursday (April 8, 2021), British Airways announced the launch of two new routes with service from London City to Jersey and Gibraltar starting June 25, 2021. The airline will offer twice weekly service to both destinations on Mondays and Fridays and the routes will be operated with BA CityFlyer Embraer E190s. To celebrate the launch of the new routes, flights are now bookable from only £42 to Jersey and £43 to Jersey each way, based on a return. British Airways’ guests will benefit from a flexible booking policy which offers no change fees or a voucher exchange for bookings made before the end of April 2022.
In Thursday’s announcement, BA CityFlyer’s Managing Director, Tom Stoddart, said,
“It’s great to be able to launch these two new services to Gibraltar and Jersey – it’s something customers have been asking us to do for quite a while. Whether it’s for a holiday or visiting friends or relatives who live either end of route when the time is right, customers will benefit from direct flights to and from the extremely conveniently located London City Airport.”
Commenting on the new Gibraltar service, the Minister for Business, Tourism, Transport and the Port of Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar, the Hon Vijay Daryanani MP, said,
“This is excellent news and continues to show the confidence that the industry has in Gibraltar as a destination. A seasonal link with London City Airport operated by BA CityFlyer brings yet another operator to Gibraltar and opens up a further catchment area from the UK. This service will complement BA’s mainline services from Heathrow and the local business and financial services community will undoubtedly welcome a link to London’s financial district. Our tourism, retail and hospitality industries can also look forward to greeting customers from the City and the east London catchment area.”
Ports of Jersey Group’s CEO, Matt Thomas, added,
“We are delighted to see the Island once again connected to London City and look forward to working alongside BA CityFlyer. We understand the importance of connectivity to London’s financial centre, as well as for Islanders wanting easy access to central London, or to take advantage of the many onward connections available.”
British Airways will continue to offer mainline service to both destinations from London-Heathrow alongside the new London City routes. The airline has introduced a range of healthy and safety measures including partnerships with the testing provider Qured and the mobile travel health app VeriFLY.
