British Airways is further increasing flights and capacity between the Isle of Man and London City Airport next yearFrom next summer the airline will operate up to 27 return flights a week compared to 19 this year.

The service is currently operated on a 50-seat Saab 2000 turboprop, but some of the additional services will be on an Embraer 170 jet aircraft, providing up to 50 per cent more seats each week.

The additional services make it even easier for customers to easily connect with British Airways’ extensive network of business and leisure destinations from London City.

Luke Hayhoe, General Manager Commercial and Customer at London City said: “We are doing what we told our customers on the Isle of Man we would do, growing and improving our schedule to London. We are delighted to be able to offer up to 3,000 seats a week on well-timed flights that offer the choice of a day return or onward connections”.
