British Airways route changes

Aberdeen and Stockholm have been dropped by British Airways from London City Airport (LCY) from the start of the winter season at the end of October. 

This still leaves the airline with a substantial route network from LCY with a fleet of 16 Embraer 170s and 190s.  For the winter the airline is to launch a five times daily Dublin service (in direct competition with CityJet)  and will also increase frequency to Scotland with up to 11 return flights to Edinburgh and eight to Glasgow.

Also departing is Swiss regional carrier Skywork who is transferring its twice daily Berne service to Southend.

British Airways continues to introduce the A380 and now has six in service with two more due by the end of the year, with another six to be delivered by 2017.  For the 2014/2015 winter season 12 of the 14 twice daily Heathrow – Los Angeles (LHR – LAX) flights will be by A380 leaving just the Tuesday and Thursday first flights  (10:25 LHR – 17:00 LAX) with a Boeing 777 (which some prefer).

For Singapore the planned increase from three (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) outbound LHR flights to daily from next February has been dropped with the balance of three current daily services by either B
oeing 777 or 747.  www.ba.com   www.flyskywork.com   www.londoncityairport.com
