New routes to Milan from London City airport and Stansted are being added by British Airways.
The services will complement an existing service from Heathrow to Milan Linate airport which operates as a codeshare with Italian carrier Meridiana.
The new Milan flights start from London City on April 24 and from Stansted on April 29.
The airline has scheduled two flights a day on weekdays and one a day at weekends from London City and two a week from Stansted.
All flights will be operated by Embraer 190 jets with on-way fares starting at £45.
BA announced new summer-only routes from London City to Skiathos and Manchester earlier this month.
The addition of Milan means that flights to 30 destinations will operate in BA colours from the Docklands airport this summer.
The carrier is adding three new destinations from Stansted this summer, including Florence, and increasing frequency on some existing routes. The new service to Milan will be the airline’s ninth route from the Essex airport.
BA general manager customer and commercial, Luke Hayhoe, said: “Milan is a very exciting route for us as it will appeal to both business and leisure customers.
“The new services gives the choice of two alternative London airports with well-timed flights to Linate, which is Milan’s most convenient airport.”
