Split is absolutely one of the rising stars of the Croatian tourist scene and its airport is receiving more new international flights than ever before. The latest airline to connect Split with London is the national airline of the UK, British Airways.
It’s the first time flights to Croatia have operated from London City Airport and British Airways will fly three flights a week through the peak summer months to September.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer at London City Airport, said: “Croatia is a new destination for us and one which our customers have told us they want from London City. It is one of the fastest growing holiday destinations and we are delighted to offer new direct flights for the summer.”
Peter Downes, Aviation Director at London City Airport, said: “The new seasonal service to Split in Croatia epitomises how our home carrier, British Airways, is broadening our offer of leisure routes from London City Airport. It’s the latest in a stellar selection of holiday getaway options that our passengers will love, as we prepare for our busiest summer yet.
The first flight from London City Airport to Split landed yesterday, the 21st of June. British Airways also operates flights to Split from Heathrow Airport and has increased frequency there from five to seven flights a week this year.
