Ideal for Business and Leisure Travelers

“Germany is such an important destination for both business and leisure customers, so the addition of Munich to our schedule has been welcomed by everyone who flies from London City,” said Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer. “With well-timed frequent flights, there are plenty of options for customers who either want to do a day trip or stay for longer. Munich complements our existing flights to Berlin, Dusseldorf and Frankfurt and means that we now fly 82 return flights a week to Germany this winter. The new route will increase the number of British Airways’ destinations from London City Airport to 34.”

“Munich is a German powerhouse of a city, attracting leisure and business travellers alike,” said Richard Hill, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport. “Its gaining popularity is reflected in the frequency of this new three-times-a-day British Airways service, which makes travel between Munich and the center of London easier and quicker, thanks to the convenience of London City Airport.”

“It’s not just the world-famous Oktoberfest that brings thousands of visitors to explore Munich. Alongside the city’s beer halls are public parks, historic architecture, and a leading center for business – home to globally recognized firms. Through British Airways’ continued growth at its London City base, we are keeping London connected to Europe – enabling trade and tourism in both directions.”
