19 December 2018 – The UK’s largest airline and flag carrier, British Airways, announced today that it will launch a new route to Split on the Dalmatian coast in the summer.
British Airways will operate a summer route from London City Airport to Split commencing on 2 June 2019.
Flights will run three times a week until 30 September 2019.
This is the first time the airport has been connected to Croatia.
British Airways already operates flights from Heathrow to Zagreb and Dubrovnik and announced it will increase the number of weekly flights from Heathrow to Split to seven next year.
BA also offers flights to Split from Luton and Gatwick on various airlines.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer, said: “With the arrival of our new aircraft next year we have been looking at a number of new route and additional frequency possibilities.
“Split is the second largest city in Croatia and is becoming increasingly popular with customers looking for an alternative holiday destination or who are joining a cruise ship. It was a natural addition to our summer leisure schedule.”
Richard Hill, chief commercial officer at London City Airport, said: “This is a stunning holiday destination that demonstrates London City’s increasing offer of leisure destinations for everyone, and British Airways’ commitment to continued growth here.”
