Some Oompah for New BA Flight to Berlin

Some Oompah for New BA Flight to Berlin

There was more than a bit of ‘oompah’ for the launch of new British Airways flights to Germany from London City Airport this weekend with a rousing send-off from the Die Dorf Fest Kapelle Oompah Band.

The band brought a traditional taste of German festivities to East London to celebrate the launch of the new three-a-day flights to Berlin. Three-a-day flights to Hamburg were launched in May and, together with existing services to Dusseldorf and Frankfurt, means that BA now operates more than 70 flights each week to Germany direct from the Docklands.

An additional 98-seat Embraer 190 aircraft has also arrived this month, the 20th Embraer to join the British Airways fleet at London City. The new aircraft will create 20 new jobs at the airport as well as additional roles for the many companies that supply the airline.

The extra routes mean that British Airways will have its busiest ever summer at London City Airport where it will operate over half the flights.

Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ General Manager Commercial and Customer, London City, said: “We are delighted to extend our flights to Germany, offering the best choice of destinations and schedules from London City Airport. This is a very important market for us and means we can offer customers what they want, excellent network and frequencies, a choice of 32 destinations in the UK, Europe and the USA and low all-inclusive fares.”

This is the first time BA has operated to Berlin from London City and each way hand baggage only fares are available from £49.
