British Airways will help kick off the start of summer on Friday, June 21, with the launch of its brand new service between London City Airport and Split. Recall, the new service to Split will operate three times a week from June 21 to September 30 and use the Embraer E190 jet which boasts 98 seats, reports Ex Yu Aviation on June 20, 2019.

This is also the first time British Airways has operated flights from London City Airport to Croatia. The new service will enhance the already established service from London Heathrow Airport, which has boosted operations this year to run seven flights per week instead of last year’s five. The connection from Heathrow runs through October. 

The Mirror published on Thursday that you can find return fares on the British Airways website from London City at £201 if you opt for the hand baggage only ticket option.

“Croatia is a new destination for us and one which our customers have told us they want from London City. It is one of the fastest growing holiday destinations and we are delighted to offer new direct flights for the summer,” said Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ Commercial General Manager at London City Airport. 

“The new seasonal service to Split in Croatia epitomises how our home carrier, British Airways, is broadening our offer of leisure routes from London City Airport. It’s the latest in a stellar selection of holiday getaway options that our passengers will love, as we prepare for our busiest summer yet. Using the city’s most central airport, sun-seeking Londoners can reach the idyllic Dalmatian coast conveniently and quickly, to discover its culture, food, stunning beaches, or as the gateway to Croatia’s islands,” London City Airport’s Aviation Director, Peter Downes, added. 

Aviation and Breaking Travel News report that the new service corresponds with the start Yacht Week, which is held in Croatia for 13 weeks over the summer.
