London City Airport resumes international flights
Starting this weekend, international flights will again be operated from London City Airport. British Airways has started flights to Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, Malaga and Florence. Next Monday, KLM Cityhopper will also start flights from London City Airport to Amsterdam Airport. Due to the strict British quarantine measures, only domestic flights have been allowed so far.
The British quarantine measures have been relaxed and since this weekend so-called ‘Travel corridors’ have been set up. These are safe countries / destinations to which travellers from the United Kingdom are allowed to fly. This will allow international air traffic to get back on track. British Airways speaks of a high number of bookings. More than initially thought.
British Airways’ flights to southern Europe are operated on a daily basis. This also applies to KLM flights between London and Amsterdam. Luxair starts with daily flights between London and Luxembourg. British Airways has announced to also fly to Nice, Mahon, Faro and Bergerac from 1 August. London City Airport expects that in the coming weeks more airlines will resume their flights from the airport.
