New Flights Launched Between London City Airport and Munich, Budapest

British Airways (BA) and LOT Airline have launched flights connecting London City Airport to Munich and Budapest respectively.

BA launched its inaugural flight to Munich from London City last Saturday.

Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer, said: “Germany is such an important destination for both business and leisure customers, so the addition of Munich to our schedule has been welcomed by everyone who flies from London City.

“With well-timed frequent flights there are plenty of options for customers who either want to do a day trip or stay for longer. Munich complements our existing flights to Berlin, Dusseldorf and Frankfurt and means that we now fly 82 return flights a week to Germany this winter. The new route will increase the number of British Airways’ destinations from London City Airport to 34.”

Richard Hill, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport, said: “Munich is a German powerhouse of a city, attracting leisure and business travellers alike. Its gaining popularity is reflected in the frequency of this new three-times-a-day British Airways service, which makes travel between Munich and the centre of London easier and quicker thanks to the convenience of London City Airport.

“It’s not just the world-famous Oktoberfest that brings thousands of visitors to explore Munich. Alongside the city’s beer halls are public parks, historic architecture and a leading centre for business – home to globally recognised firms. Through British Airways’ continued growth at its London City base, we are keeping London connected to Europe – enabling trade and tourism in both directions.”

Polish airline LOT flew from Budapest to London City Airport for the first time on Monday, 18 February. The airline will fly twice daily, which is 12 times a week service.

Lot acquired four new Embraer 190s that will be used for the new route.

Adrian Kubicki, Director of Corporate Communications at LOT Polish Airlines, said: “We are more than happy to welcome passengers from Hungary onboard our flights to London City today. London City is the most convenient airport for those passengers willing to get to the City of London in the shortest and most comfortable way.

“There is a great potential in this flight as the annual average passenger traffic on the Budapest-London route approximates 1.4 m. After fights to New York, Chicago and Kraków launched last year, now it’s time for London City. We are certain that new connections will be in favour of passengers travelling to and from CEE region and are going to be among the most successful routes in our constantly growing network. Already this year we will launch flights from Budapest to Brussels and Bucharest taking another step in developing our presence in Hungary.” 

Peter Downes, Aviation Director at London City Airport, said: “It is now quicker and easier than ever to hop between the Danube and the Thames thanks to LOT Polish Airlines’ new service between Budapest and London’s most central airport.

“It means that, for the first time, the Hungarian capital joins our route map, adding another major European city that leisure passengers will love, and a convenient service for business trips.

“This is the latest staging post in LOT’s growth at London City Airport, coming just five weeks after the highly successful launch of flights to Warsaw and ahead of a new Vilnius connection in May – all made possible thanks to the airline’s investment in four new Embraer 190 aircraft. This is a really exciting chapter for London City and LOT, transforming our Central European offer, and enabling closer ties for tourism and trade, at an important time for the UK, London, and Hungary.”
