The airline will operate a daily week day service from Ronaldsway to London City Airport from May 28. This will increase to three flights each week day plus one on Saturdays and two on Sundays from June 25.
The new service will give customers easy access to the commercial centre of London and also allow them to connect with 22 British Airways destinations served from the Docklands airport, including Frankfurt, Zurich and New York.
Benefits of flying to and from London City Airport include the ease of access to Canary Wharf, just 12 minutes away, and the City of London just a 25 minute journey by Docklands Light Railway direct from the airport.
British Airways also offer a minimum check in time at London City of just 15 minutes for customers with hand luggage and 20 minutes with checked in luggage.
One way all inclusive fares from the Isle of Man to London City are available from £59 on www.ba.com
Fares include free on-line check in and seat selection up to 24 hours before departure, a generous 23 kg checked-in luggage allowance, complimentary food and drinks on board including a hot breakfast on morning flights, and no debit card fees.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways general manager commercial, said: “We are delighted that British Airways will be back in the Isle of Man with the launch of this new important air link from the Island. Our schedule means that customers can enjoy a full business day with conveniently timed flights direct to the heart of the capital or they can easily connect with our onward services.”
