British Airways is starting a ski route from Stansted tomorrow (Saturday) with flights to the French Alps.
The service to Chambery will run twice a week and complement flights from London City airport which rise from three times a week to a daily service over the Christmas and new year period.
The airline started flying from Stansted for the first time in May.
The weekend flights to Chambery are timed to give access to ski resorts such as Val d’Isere, La Plagne, Meribel and Courchevel.
One-way fares start at £49 while other tariffs which include ski carriage are also available.
BA general manager commercial and customer Luke Hayhoe said: “British Airways has enjoyed a very successful first summer at Stansted and we are delighted to launch Chambery, our first winter-only service offering skiers and winter sports enthusiasts a gateway to one of the best Alpine snow regions direct from their doorstep.”
Stansted aviation director Mats Sigurdson added: “The announcement is a real vote of confidence in Stansted and recognition of the strong demand that exists across the region and will provide passengers with even more opportunities to fly from their local airport this winter.”
