Another Italian job from BA. The airline is launching new year-round flights to Milan.

The new routes to Milan’s Linate Airport will start from London City on April 24 and from Stansted on April 29.

There will be two flights a day on week days and one a day at weekends from London City and two a week from Stansted.

BA’s Luke Hayhoe 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 BA announced new summer-only routes from London City to Skiathos, Greece and to Manchester, which together with Milan means the airline will fly to 30 destinations from the Docklands airport this summer.

At Stansted, BA is launching three new destinations, 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.
