British Airways adds Berlin from London City

11 Mar 2016 by Tom Otley
British Airways has announced new services for this summer from London City Airport with three times daily flights to both Berlin and Hamburg. It is the first time British Airways has operated to Berlin from London City. The new route launches on June 19 using an Embraer 190 jet. Hamburg is currently served by British Airways’ franchise partner SUN-AIR but from 8 May British Airways will take over the route using larger Saab 2000 aircraft, more than doubling the number of seats available. As well as the two new routes BA is adding an additional Embraer 190 jet to the airport. The additional 98-seat aircraft, arriving in June, will be the 20th Embraer to join the British Airways fleet at London City. Together with existing services to Dusseldorf and Frankfurt means the airline will operate more than 70 flights each week to Germany direct from LCY. In addition BA will add a weekly flight to Berlin to its new schedule from Stansted, which means it will operate to five destinations from the Essex airport this summer. Luke Hayhoe, BA’s general manager commercial and customer, London City, said: “Germany is a very important market for us and these new routes give both our business and leisure customers a much wider choice of destinations with a well-timed schedule." ba.com London City to Berlin timetable Flight No Depart   Arrive    Days BA8491 08:20     11:00     Mon-Sat BA8493 12:55     15:40     Mon, Wed, Fri BA8493 13:15     15:55     Tue, Thur, Sun BA8495 18:10     20:55     Mon-Fri, Sun   Berlin to London City timetable Flight No Depart   Arrive    Days BA8490 07:05     07:50     Mon-Sat BA8492 11:35     12:20     Mon, Wed, Fri BA8492 12:00     12:40     Tue, Thur, Sun BA8494 16:50     17:40     Mon-Fri, Sun   London City to Hamburg timetable Flight No Depart   Arrive    Days BA3291 08:20     11:00     Mon-Fri BA3293 13:25     16:05     Mon-Fri BA3295 18:20     21:00     Mon-Fri BA3291 08:45     11:25     Sat BA3295 18:40     21:20     Sun   Hamburg to London City timetable Flight No Depart   Arrive    Days BA3292 07:10     07:50     Mon-Sat BA3294 12:15     12:55     Mon-Fri BA3296 17:10     17:50     Mon-Fri BA3296 17:30     18:10     Sun
