British Airways to offer more regional flights to holiday hotspots next summer

British Airways is to increase flights from UK regional airports to some of the top European holiday hotspots in summer 2018, the company said.

In May this year British Airways launched seven new summer-only routes from Manchester Airport and four from Birmingham and Bristol airports.

From May 2018 there will be extra weekend flights from Manchester to Malaga, Ibiza and Palma, with Mykonos flights operating on Saturdays instead of Fridays, an extra weekend flight from Birmingham to Palma and an extra weekend flight from Bristol to Malaga.

Additional summer routes include flights from Manchester to Alicante and Nice, from Birmingham to Malaga and Florence and from Bristol to Ibiza, Palma and Florence.

For snow and ski lovers, British Airways is also launching new winter-only services from Manchester to Salzburg and Chambery on December 15.

British Airways currently operates up to 10 return flights a day between Manchester and London Heathrow and a weekly service to London City Airport.
