British Airways restarts London Stansted Airport operation

British Airways has returned to London Stansted Airport and is now offering scheduled services from the airport for the first time since the global pandemic.

Launched on 18 May 2024, weekend flights from London Stansted to Florence, Ibiza and Nice have now joined BA Cityflyer’s operations for the summer season on its Embraer 190 aircraft.  London Stansted Airport is now the fourth London airport British Airways flies from.  

BA Cityflyer is a subsidiary of British Airways, which operates from London City Airport during the week to nearly 30 short-haul destinations. The new Stansted services will complement the existing weekday services from London City, plus recently added weekend services from Edinburgh to San Sebastian, Spain and Olbia, Sardinia.  

Each flight will offer Club Europe (business class) and Euro Traveller (economy). Customers in Club Europe will experience a full meal service with drinks from the bar, priority board and additional baggage allowance.

London Stansted’s commercial director Ciaran Brannigan says: “London Stansted serves more European destinations than any other UK airport and these new services to Ibiza, Florence and Nice are strong additions to our route network, which now covers over 200 destinations across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

“I’m sure these routes will be very popular with passengers from across London, Cambridge and the growing East of England region. We look forward to working closely with British Airways to build a strong working relationship and ensure these new flights are a success.”

The move comes as easyJet announces plans to base three A320neos at the London Southend Airport in spring 2025 accommodating growth plans.
