British Airways is to return to London Stansted airport with weekend flights to Florence, Ibiza and Nice.

The summer-only flights, to be operated by London City Airport-based subsidiary BA Cityflyer, will launch on 18 May 2024.

The new Stansted services will complement Cityflyer’s weekday services from London City, plus recently added weekend services from Edinburgh to San Sebastian, Spain and Olbia, Sardinia.  

This will be the first time that British Airways has offered scheduled flights from Stansted since before the global pandemic, and it will become the fourth London airport to be served by the flag carrier. 

Each flight will offer two cabins: Club Europe (business class) and Euro Traveller (economy). 

Flights will be available from £41 each way to Florence, £36 each way to Ibiza and £43 each way to Nice. Flights are now live. 

BA has also announced it is launching flights from Gatwick to Agadir in Morocco. The four-times weekly service will be operated by subsidiary BA Euroflyer, from 31 March 2024.
