British Airways is to launch new routes in October from London City Airport to three European capitals: Paris, Prague and Reykjavik. The new services to the three popular cities will mean British Airways will fly to 30 destinations from London City this winter.

The Orly flights are being transferred to London City Airport from Heathrow, offering customers a choice of two London airports from Paris. Flights to Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris will continue to operate from Heathrow.

It will be the fifth French route served by British Airways from the Docklands airport. The launch of Prague and Reykjavik routes will be the first time British Airways has flown to the Czech Republic or Iceland from London City.

Reykjavik will be a winter-only service, replacing flights to Granada, Spain which will continue as a summer-only service resuming next year.

There will be three flights a day to Orly during the week and one a day at weekends, six flights a week to Prague and two a week to Reykjavik.

Flights will operate on Embraer jets with a choice of Club Europe and Euro Traveller cabins and two-abreast seating so that every customer can have either a window or aisle seat.

Flights go on sale today (July 18) with each way hand baggage only fares to Orly available from £49, to Prague from £49 and to Reykjavik from £59 are available to book on www.ba.com/londoncity.
