BA to triple flights between LCY and Isle of Man
Published: 16/01/2014 - Filed under: News »
British Airways is to triple its flights between London City Airport and the Isle of Man this summer.
From March 30, the national carrier will increase the service from one to three per weekday, with one flight on Saturdays and two on Sundays.
Luke Hayhoe, BA's general manager commercial, said: "We are delighted that British Airways is able to increase services from the Isle of Man. There is a strong demand for a schedule suitable for business and leisure trips to London.
"Our schedule will allow customers to enjoy a full business day with conveniently timed flights direct to the heart of the London or connect easily with our onward services."
Last month, it emerged that BA will begin installing denser new seating across its Airbus fleet this year (see news, December 19).

Odd that BA's new seating is highlighted here, as the airline does not use any airbus aircraft on LCY routes, which are a relatively new fleet of BA CityFlyer Embraers.
The only exception to this is the Saab2000 turboprop, which often is often used on the IOM service, and therefore using he airbus jet to illustrate this story does seem somewhat brave.

BA does operate an Airbus 318 on its LCY-JFK service. Perhaps the author just wanted to pad the article with additional information.
