British Airways is ushering in the winter season with bigger aircraft and additional flights for travellers planning a trip to Germany.
British Airways is providing more than 34,000 extra seats to Germany from London City Airport over the winter with bigger aircraft and additional flights. Services to Hamburg and Dusseldorf will operate on the 76-seat Embraer 170 jet aircraft, replacing the current Saab 2000 turboprop.
The Dusseldorf schedule will also increase from three to four flights a day. Meanwhile, larger aircraft will mean the airline is more than doubling its capacity to Hamburg on the three daily flights. Said benefit alongside additional frequencies increases the number of seats to by 33 percent.
New three-a-day flights to Berlin from London City launched earlier in the year, which together with Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, and Bremen indicates that British Airways will operate up to 85 flights each week direct from the Docklands to Germany during the coming winter.
“We were delighted to increase our schedule with new services to Berlin and Hamburg. With a larger aircraft fleet, we can be more flexible and add the additional frequencies that customers have asked for,” said Luke Hayhoe, GM, Commercial and Customer, London City at British Airways.
British Airways was a winner at 2016-2017 World Branding Awards under the Airline (National) category.
