Year-round flights to Barcelona to launch from London City

British Airways (BA) is re-launching year-round flights to Barcelona from London City Airport

British Airways (BA) is re-launching year-round flights to Barcelona from London City Airport at the end of this month.

The route, which previously only operated during the summer months, will resume at the end of this month and continue throughout next winter.

From May, BA will introduce an additional Saturday morning service to the Catalan city, meaning that it will operate seven flights to Barcelona a week.

The route will be the responsibility of BA CityFlyer, the airline’s wholly-owned subsidiary.

Lucy Hayhoe, the airline’s commercial manager, explained that Spanish destinations are "proving extremely popular" from the Docklands airport.

"Barcelona has traditionally operated as a summer only destination but there is a big demand from both business and leisure passengers for us to continue through the winter," she said.

In May, BA is also launching new flights to Majorca and Ibiza in addition to its Madrid route from London City.

Last month, London City was voted Top UK Airport by readers of Wanderlust magazine for the fifth year in succession.
