BA improves London's links with Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin

British Airways has announced it will increase the number of daily return flights from London to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin.

In a move thought to be aimed at the business travel market, British Airways has expanded its portfolio of flights to Scotland and Ireland, with London City airport handling all three, reports.

The expansion will see an extra two return flights to Glasgow each day, taking the total to eight. One extra return flight will be laid on to Edinburgh, making for a daily total of 11. Dublin, meanwhile, will have a direct link to London City for the first time ever. For this, BA has said it will operate five return journeys daily.

These flights look set to be introduced in October for the start of BA’s winter season.

Commenting on the decision, BA’s commercial general manager at London City, Luke Hayhoe, told “We are very excited about flying to Dublin, it was what our customers wanted and we are delighted that we can offer such an excellent schedule giving them plenty of choice whether they are flying for business or pleasure.

“We are also able to add to our existing network to Scotland with extra flights on the popular Glasgow and Edinburgh routes, once again improving frequency and schedule.”
