BA double for Milan

Milan’s Linate Airport is gaining two new British Airways routes this spring, with a service from London City Airport starting on 24 April and from Stansted on 29 April, both using the Embraer 190. BA will operate two flights a day on weekdays and one a day at weekends from London City and two a week from Stansted.

General manager customer and commercial Luke Hayhoe said: “Milan is an exciting route as it appeals to both business and leisure customers and we are giving passengers the choice of two London airports and well-timed flights to Milan’s most convenient airport.”

Earlier this month, BA announced new summer routes from London City to Skiathos and to Manchester, which together with Milan means flights to 30 destinations will operate in BA colours from the Docklands airport this summer.

At Stansted, BA is launching three new destinations, including a second Italian city, Florence, and increasing frequency on some existing routes. The service to Milan will be the airline’s ninth new route this summer.

The Embraer 190 features spacious cabins and two-abreast seating, giving every passenger an aisle or window seat. Club Europe customers also have free food and drinks, extra baggage allowance and free seat selection and on-line check-in.
