BA hits London City traffic record

BA hits London City traffic record

British Airways achieved record passenger carryings of more than 100,000 from London City airport in June.

It was the first time the milestone has been broken in a single month and came as wholly-owned subsidiary BA CityFlyer added a new  Embraer 190 aircraft to its fleet.

The aircraft will operate on all routes from London City, including flights to Stockholm and flights to Malaga and Faro, which were launched in June.

BA CityFlyer general manager commercial Luke Hayhoe said: “We are delighted with the response we have had to the new aircraft fleet. Our customer feedback is the highest it’s ever been in terms of comfort and service on board the aircraft. The fact customers are so positive is obviously reflected in the fantastic passenger numbers we’ve had for June.

“The original order was for a fleet of 11 aircraft but we converted two further options and as a result have been able to launch a number of new routes from London City in the past year.”
