British Airways is offering Ibiza as a year-round destination offering a record 26,000 seats from London City in the winger.

BA will be the only airline to operate from London City to Ibiza during the winter and will be offering almost 50% more capacity than last year from October

Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial at London City, said: “The island is now attracting thousands of visitors looking for some winter sun and alternative places to visit.

“It’s a great short break destination, and with our year-round flights customers can board an aircraft in the heart of London and be in the sun in under two and a half hours.”

Carmen Sánchez, director of the Ibiza Tourist Board said: “The Ibiza Tourist board is delighted that British Airways is further increasing flights to Ibiza. The airline has always been very supportive of the destination and has continued to increase its London City to Ibiza route since its launch in 2010.

“The capacity increase is testament to the appeal of the island throughout the winter when the balmy climate, scenery, Unecso culture and relaxed atmosphere make Ibiza an ideal break from the UK winter.”
