Italian airline ITA Airways will re-launch up to three flights a week from London City Airport to Milan Linate on 28 March.
The airline will offer a total of 18 flights a week on the route.
London City said up to 360,000 passengers flew between the Docklands and Milan in 2018. It was especially popular with business travellers from large corporations such as JP Morgan, Barclays and Credit Suisse, it said.
London City Airport Chief Commercial Officer Richard Hill added: “We’re delighted to announce the return of flights to Milan, which has historically been one of the most popular business and leisure destinations from our airport.
“Our recovery is going from strength to strength, as the sector builds back confidence after a difficult period for aviation and international travel. We’re so excited to be able to help quench passengers’ untapped thirst for travel this summer.”
For the 2022 summer season, ITA Airways will operate the Milan Linate – London City route with three flights a day from Mondays to Fridays, one flight on Saturdays and two flights on Sundays.
Flights will be departing from Linate at 07:00; 12:20 and 17:40 and from London City at 08:25; 13:45 and 19:05 for a total of 36 round-trip flights a week.
