Connections to Rotterdam and Nice also resume, 20 of the 25 routes that BA CityFlyer operated in 2019 have now returned to the schedule.

The return of the core BA CityFlyer routes comes as the airport sees momentum in passenger growth with its fourth consecutive busiest week since the start of the pandemic.

"We are delighted to see key routes and strong passenger growth returning to LCY", airport Head of Aviation Anne Doyere said. "The demand from customers has given us real confidence heading into the summer this year."

Business traffic is also making a return since the easing of travel restrictions for passengers arriving into the UK, with 2019 business traffic share reached, representing 46 percent of passenger journeys. In particular, core business routes Edinburgh, Zurich, Amsterdam and Dublin are all seeing strong growth.

The latest figures indicate that London City Airport is "on track to have its best month since the pandemic began, up 40 percent on February’s figures.," the airport said. The summer outlook is also "looking strong" with LCY to connect to 36 destinations this summer, reaching nearly 80% of 2019 destinations.

In addition to the BA services, ITA Airways will connect London City Airport with Milan Linate from March 28th.
