Which routes do BA currently operate from LCY? Are all of them year round?

What are the plans for 2011? Any expansion planned?

BA operate one route from London City to New York.
All other routes are operated by BA Cityflyer, a wholly owned subsidiary, which operates independantly of the mother company.

So where can we see them flying to in the future from LCY? More leisure, or more business routes?

FAO, LIS, LYS, DUS, VIE, FCO perhaps?

Problems is London City is actually slot restricted !

However expect Helsinki, Milan and possibly a return to Warsaw - City routes.

With the likes of Catania, Dubrovnik,Salzburg as seasonal weekenders.

Plus possibly elite service to Boston and/or Dullas

CJ do charters at weekends to AGP and CAG but not from LCY, is this the best utilisation for their aircraft during the LCY weekend closure period?

Yea, it makes money when the aircraft would normally be grounded. The weekend closer also mean flights can go to GLA for their maintenance with out interrupting the schedule if needed.

So LCY shuts on Saturdays and Sundays? Weird.

I think a LIS-LCY would do well, especially since now BA have a terrible schedule to LHR from LIS - two early morning flights then an 8 hour gap until the evening departure.

LisbonBearUK

Licence suspended from 13.00 Saturday to 12.30 Sunday

Route profile is almost totally based around needs of the CIty Financial Services industry sector so its Frankfurt/Paris/Geneva/Zurich and Isle of Man .........

Plus Antwerp/Rotterdam for diamond trading.

With just few select end of week vacation routes thrown in, all for banker to get to their Gites/Villas in summer or to the Ski hut in winter.

Within the context of the Iberian Peninsular is would see Bilbao/Santander a probability and perhaps Porto (Viable leisure and alcohol industry contacts) before Lisbon

Why do you think i said Bilbao first (BA have flown here in the past).

Santander is small and bleak , but for being the HQ of one of the UKs largest retail banking groups, yet Bilbao is only a few tens of miles away and an important City in and of its self.

So, the Avro 100 are all retired?

Why not?

Santander is a very busy city near from Bilbao and with high demand in both air and sea ways: don't forget the three times a week the ship from Plymouth to Santander.

Add to the comments of rutankrd: one of the largest UK banks is controlled by Banco Santander...

Let's wait and see...

Yes.

BA also has 16 options remaining for Embraer aircraft.

Nevertheless, LCY say, per the above link, "Slots – currently available for all times of the day, including peak times"

Of course you do: you are always hugely 'supportive' of LIS.   What proof - figures would be fine, with a source linked - can you provide of a sufficiently significiant business component on LIS-LON-LIS to justify a LCY service?

I don't know if these information are accurate but Vienna was tried before with 2 daily F70 flights by OS and it did not work.

But I could see JER & LIN working well for BA.

For the leisure traffic, INN, CAG & DBV could do well.



Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

LCY - JER was flown by Flybe using Dash 8 200/300 ten years ago but there was insufficient traffic for their current smallest aircraft, Q400s. The route has until more recently been flown by VLM with F50s.

I was once told that part of the reason that LCY shut on the weekend was because its very close to multi-million pound homes.

Fares from London City used to be (might still be) more expensive that LHR or LGW as it was marketed towards the business market rather than leisure travellers. As they don't tend to travel on a weekend well that sort of adds another reason not to open on Saturday afternoons/Sunday mornings.

BA have just requested slots from LCY to LIN and VCE as from S11, but it doesn't mean they will fly these routes for sure.
