British Airways is to increase the frequency of flights on three routes from London City next year, as the carrier takes delivery of two new Embraer 190 aircraft.

From January the airline will offer a total of 23 weekly flights from LCY to Milan Linate (up from 11), 24 to Frankfurt (up from 20), and 36 to Dublin (up from 32).

In addition BA will add new weekly summer season flights from Manchester to both Florence and Dublin, and from Edinburgh to Florence from May 2018.

The carrier said that the extra flights are being made possible by the arrival of two new 98-seat Embraer 190 aircraft in January and April.

Commenting on the news Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager customer and commercial, said:

“The new Embraer 190 jets will be a welcome addition to our fleet as we continue to grow our route network and frequencies both from our home base at London City and from other UK regional airports. It enables us to expand both our business and leisure routes, with much improved schedules and timings to Milan Linate and Frankfurt.

“This year we have almost doubled the number of routes we operate compared to last year and the winter season brings a further five new routes, London City to Paris Orly, Prague and Reykjavik and Manchester to Chambery and Salzburg ahead of the new routes next summer.”

The expansion comes after what BA said had been “the successful launch of our regional flying this year”, with new routes operating from Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Edinburgh and Manchester in 2017.
