Flights to London City Airport (above) will operate northbound on Fridays and southbound on Sundays.

In May the airline launched seven new summer-only routes from Manchester to popular leisure destinations in Europe as well as London City, providing more than 35,000 extra seats from the North West.

British Airways also operates up to 10 return flights a day between Manchester and London Heathrow.



The new summer routes operate until October and the London City service will resume on 15 December along with flights to Salzburg (above) and Chambery.

Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager customer and commercial, said: “After a successful new summer programme from Manchester we have decided to continue our leisure flying with direct services to two of the most popular winter break destinations in Austria and France.”

All flights will operate on modern Embraer 190 jet aircraft.
