CRAWLEY, England – This winter will see new air service from British Airways, which is extending its route network from London City Airport with a new flight from London to Chambery, the gateway to the French Alps.
The service, by BA CityFlyer, the wholly-owned subsidiary of British Airways, will operate four times a week from December 18 until the end of March 2011, using the airline’s fleet of brand new Embraer 190 aircraft. Flights to Chambery will depart on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays with flights from the French ski destination back to London on Mondays, Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Luke Hayhoe, BA CityFlyer commercial manager said: “Our schedule is ideally set up to give our customers the opportunity to spend a long weekend, a full week, or even longer, skiing on some of the world’s best slopes and resorts.
“Only a few short hours after taking off from London’s Docklands, our customers can be in a winter wonderland of 120 ski resorts, all set amidst the majesty and splendor of the French and Swiss Alps.”
