More British Airways for London City

Paris Orly, Prague and Reykjavik are being added to British Airways’ network from London City airport from October. The Paris Orly service is transferring from Heathrow, with three flights a day on weekdays and one a day at weekends.

Orly will be the fifth French route served by BA from the Docklands airport, while the introduction of routes to Prague and Reykjavik will be the first time BA has flown to the Czech Republic or Iceland from there.

Reykjavik will be a winter-only two-a-week service, replacing flights to Granada in Spain, which will continue as a summer-only service, resuming next year. Six flights a week have been scheduled to Prague.

BA customer and commercial general manager Luke Hayhoe said: “Paris and Prague are two great additions to our schedule at London City. Well-timed flights and a quick and easy journey through the airport will give business customers another option to reach either city while Reykjavik is a great leisure destination."

The addition of the three European capitals means BA will serve 30 destinations from London City this winter. Flights to Paris Charles De Gaulle will continue to operate from Heathrow.
