BA is planning to fly Business Only flights direct from London City to New York in 2009 on Airbus A318 aircraft with 32 seats. The check-in at London City is planned to be only 15 minutes !!
The London to New York business only route will compete with the services already offered by Silverjet and EOS. Virgin and bmi are also thought to be working up similar plans but have yet to launch.
BA’s Willie Walsh announced: “This niche service will fly passengers between the heart of the two largest financial centres in the world”.
BA currently flies London Heathrow to JFK eight times a day and three times a day to Newark.
