British Airways is to launch new three-times-a-day flights from London City Airport to the Bavarian beer capital of Munich next year.
The year-round flights, which start on February 16, means British Airways will offer four German routes from London City, with each-way hand baggage only fares to Munich from £59.
As well as the new service British Airways will also add extra winter frequency on the popular Berlin, Dublin and Prague routes from November 10 this year and to Geneva from December.
Return flights to Berlin will go up to 18 a week, Dublin to 38 a week, Prague to seven a week and Geneva to 16 a week from December.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer, said: “As promised we are adding more choice for our customers at London City Airport with a new route and extra frequency to four of our most popular destinations.
One of British Airways’ top customers, Siemens, who opened their new corporate headquarters in Munich in 2016, have welcomed the new route.
The news comes after British Airways announced in August it will be adding four new aircraft to its fleet based at London City, as well as starting a new daily service to Rome and adding a fifth daily year-round service to Zurich in October.
The year-round Rome route starts on November 11, with one-way hand baggage only fares from £55.
British Airways’ £4.5 billion investment for customers over the next five years, also includes the installation of the best quality WiFi and power in every seat, fitting 128 long-haul aircraft with new interiors and taking delivery of 72 new aircraft.
