The British Airways twice-weekly service to Chambery begins on 16 December, with the city serving as a gateway to key Alpine ski resorts.
British Airways is launching a new service to the French Alpine city of Chambery from Stansted and extending its Berlin service through the winter. The airline started flying from Stansted for the first time during May this year, adding a fourth London airport to its air travel network.
Summer-only flights to Berlin, Faro, Ibiza, Malaga, and Palma were due to operate until the end of October. But Berlin continues through winter and services to Faro and Malaga will be extended until 20 November. The twice-weekly service to Chambery will start on 16 December.
The city is a gateway to key Alpine ski resorts, with Meribel 60 miles away, Courcheval 69 miles, and La Plagne 75 miles away. The offering complements the service from London City Airport, which operates thrice a week increasing to a daily service over Christmas and New Year’s.
“Our flights from Stansted have proved so popular that we wanted to continue flying through winter. The new service gives skiers and winter sports enthusiasts a gateway to one of the best Alpine snow regions direct from their doorstep,” said Luke Hayhoe, GM, Commercial and Customer at British Airways.
During the 2015-2016 installation of the prestigious World Branding Awards held at London’s Kensington Palace, British Airways emerged as a winner under the programme’s Airline (National) category, walking away with the title for a second consecutive year.
