British Airways is set to launch new routes from London City airport to Paris, Prague and Reykjavik.

From October, services to Paris Orly will be transferred to London City from Heathrow, while flights to Charles De Gaulle airport will continue to operate from Heathrow. A policy is in place for customers  booked on Heathrow-Orly flights to transfer to London City or receive a full refund.

This will be the fifth French route served by British Airways from the Docklands airport, and the first time the airline has flown from London City to Prague and Reykjavik.

Reykjavik will be a winter-only service, replacing flights to Granada, Spain which will continue as a summer-only service, resuming next year.

There will be three flights a day to Orly during the week and one a day at weekends, six flights a week to Prague and two a week to Reykjavik.

Flights will operate on Embraer jets with both Club Europe and Euro Traveller cabins configured 2-2. Flights go on sale today (July 18) with each way hand baggage only fares to Orly available from £49, Prague from £49 and  Reykjavik from £59.

British Airways’ general manager customer and commercial, Luke Hayhoe, said:

“Paris and Prague are two great additions to our schedule at London City. Well timed flights and a quick and easy journey through the airport will give business customers another option to reach either capital city, which are of course also two of the most popular leisure destinations in Europe. Reykjavik is a leisure route, and gateway to some of the most dramatic scenery and skiing that Iceland has to offer.”
