British Airways franchise partner SUN-AIR will restart flights from London City airport to Billund on Monday 5 September 2022.
SUN-AIR is BA’s last remaining franchise partner following the collapse of Comair. It had suspended all scheduled flights due to COVID-19. The airline is operating a charter flight between Manchester, Cambridge and Gothenburg.
SUN-AIR will fly between London City and Billund up to 6 times weekly between Monday and Thursday.
British Airways’ franchise partner SUN-AIR of Scandinavia A/S has decided to suspend all scheduled flights until August 2021.
SUN-AIR, which operated routes from London City and Manchester to Billund, had been progressively delaying the resumption of scheduled flights.
It has now decided to suspend all scheduled flights until August 2021. These may restart earlier, but this will depend on a significant improvement on market conditions. This is likely to be only achieved by an easing of travel restrictions in Europe which in turn requires a widely available vaccine against COVID-19.
BA has recently reinstated scheduled flights from London Heathrow to Billund. Its schedules are of course subject to change in the coming weeks as countries in Europe reintroduce lockdowns and travel restrictions.
SUN-AIR also operates a shuttle between Manchester, Cambridge and Gothenburg on behalf of AstraZeneca which it will reinstate at its request.
