British Airways new routes & increased frequency

From May 2017, British Airways will begin summer-only direct flights from Manchester to Alicante, Malaga, Ibiza, Palma, Mykonos, Nice and a weekly service to London City Airport. In addition, British Airways will launch new flights from London Stansted (STN) to Florence, Geneva and Nice, as well as increase the frequency on existing routes to Ibiza and Palma. Flights to Malaga and Faro will resume for the summer. All flights will operate on an Embraer 190 jet aircraft, with spacious cabins and two side-by-side seating, so every customer can have an aisle or window seat. Club Europe and eligible Executive Club customers will also be able to use the rooftop British Airways Terraces Lounge at Manchester Airport, receive complimentary food and drinks on board, a generous free baggage allowance, free seat selection and online check-in. All the new return British Airways flights from Manchester will operate once a week at weekends, with the exception of the Ibiza route which will operate three times a week. British Airways currently operates up to 10 return flights a day between Manchester and London Heathrow. Source: British Airways
