Ten years of BA at LCY

Cityflyer, the British Airways subsidiary based at London City Airport, is marking 10 years of operating at the East London airport.  The first aircraft with a British Airways tail, an Avro RJ100, took off from the Docklands airport on 30 March 2003 operating to Paris.  On 27 March the airline is holding a birthday party at the Museum of London Docklands with former England football centre forward and TV personality Gary Lineker playing host.

In fact British Airways connection with the airport goes back further, Brymon Airways' Chairman, the then Colin Marshal, a keen supporter of the scheme.  At the time Brymon, the airline initiator of the project, was 40% owned by BA.

The evening will be attended by over 200 guests who have each played a part in the airline’s 10 years of success at the airport.  Celebrity guests will provide the entertainment and money raised on the night will go to Flying Start, British Airways’ global charity partnership with Comic Relief.

CityFlyer is the largest operator at the airport in terms of passenger numbers flying to 21 destinations in the UK and mainland Europe plus a double daily BA mainline New York JFK service.  Franchise partner Sun Air also operates double daily flights to Billund in Denmark in BA colours. www.ba.com
