Londoners will be able to travel abroad after a main airport in the capital has resumed flights to eight destinations.
Earlier last week (June 21st), the first flight from London City Airport since late March took off, with the BA3287 aircraft travelling to the Isle of Man’s Douglas.
It announced British Airways subsidiary BA CityFlyer will begin some routes from the airport to reconnect Brits with other major destinations, including Florence, Malaga, Palma and Ibiza. It will also re-start domestic flights to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin.
Chief executive office of London City Airport Robert Sinclair said this is “good news for business and leisure passengers and we hope signals the start of the road towards a recovery”.
He added: “We believe there is demand from passengers to get back to flying and we have worked hard to make that possible – putting in place appropriate measures to make the airport safe and working closely with British Airways to restore some popular routes and important connections.”
Among the safety measures that have been introduced at the airport to make sure it is as safe as possible for flyers is installing touch-free hand sanitisers; fitting Perspex screens at check-in desks; putting floor markings to ensure social distancing; preliminary screening of temperatures through non-contact automatic technology; making staff wear visors or face masks and gloves; and boosting its cleaning regime.
Tui has also announced it is intending to resume flights to eight destinations at the beginning of next month.
It revealed it plans to recommence holidays to Ibiza, Palma, Corfu, Crete, Kos Rhodes, Lanzarote and Tenerife from July 11th, potentially adding a further 11 destinations by the end of the month.
