British Airways is to launch seven new routes from Manchester Airport this summer and three new destinations from London Stansted.
From May the airline will begin summer-only direct flights from Manchester to the Spanish destinations of Alicante, Malaga, Ibiza and Palma, the Greek island of Mykonos, Nice in the South of France and a weekly service to London City Airport.
In addition new flights from Stansted, part of the Manchester Airport Group, will launch to Florence, Geneva and Nice and there will be increased frequency on existing routes to Ibiza and Palma. Flights to Malaga and Faro will also resume for the summer.
All flights will operate on Embraer 190 jet aircraft.
Club Europe and eligible Executive Club customers will also be able to use the rooftop British Airways Terraces Lounge at Manchester Airport. Club customers receive complimentary food and drinks on board, a generous free baggage allowance and free seat selection and online check-in.
All the new return British Airways flights from Manchester will operate once a week at weekends, with the exception of the Ibiza route which will operate three times a week, and will provide more than 35,000 extra seats from the North West.
British Airways currently operates up to 10 return flights a day between Manchester and London Heathrow.
