British Airways will operate its largest schedule at London City airport this summer since 2019. A number of new seasonal routes launch this year.
Here are the main schedule changes for the summer season, which officially runs from Sunday 27 March to Saturday 29 October 2022.
As ever, this subject to change – not only due to possible travel restrictions, but also operational resources.
