The FINANCIAL -- British Airways is launching a new year-round service to Milan – the airline’s ninth route from London Stansted.
The new twice-weekly service to the city’s Linate airport will start on April 29, according to London Stansted.
Mats Sigurdson, Stansted Airport Aviation Director, said:
“It’s fantastic to hear that British Airways is launching another new service from Stansted. This is excellent news for the airport and gives passengers even more choice. It also reflects the growing strength of demand that exists for these services across London and the east of England.”
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager customer and commercial, said:
“Milan is a very exciting route for us as it will appeal to both business and leisure customers. The new services gives the choice of two alternative London airports with well-timed flights to Linate, which is Milan’s most convenient airport.”
Earlier this month, British Airways announced it was launching three new destinations from Stansted, including a second Italian city Florence, and increasing frequency on some existing routes. The new service to Milan will be the airline’s ninth route this summer from Stansted.
