British Airways to make Balearic Islands year round destination

British Airways has confirmed it will bring a bit of winter sunshine to London City Airport by extending its popular Palma and Ibiza flights to a year-round service.

At present the British flag-carrier only offers the two Balearic Island destinations during the summer, but from October they will continue through the winter with two flights a week on Thursdays and Sundays.

The news will come as a welcome boost to Ibiza since the island does not currently have a single direct service to the UK during the winter.

The news follows the launch of new flights to Mahon in Menorca for summer 2012 which completes the airline’s Balearic Islands portfolio.

As the airline continues to grow its network customers have more choice to more business and leisure destinations, flying on one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the business.

British Airways offers all-inclusive fares to all destinations, which include a generous free 23kg luggage allowance, free on-line check-in and seat selection 24 hours before departure and complimentary food and drink on board.
