New Route for the Menorca Summer Season
Mar 06, 2012

BA Cityflyer is offering a new connection from London City to Menorca. The new route will be operated from 25th May to 28th September 2012.

The flights will start three times a week – flights start from Menorca on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

This is welcome news for passengers flying from London, since at present they have to queue up for Monarch Airlines’ flights from London Gatwick Airport. The new BA Cityflyer route will be a great addition to Menorca Airport’s destinations. At present well known carriers such as Vueling Airlines, Air Europa, Swiftair, Iberia, Air Nostrum L.A. Mediterraneo and Air Berlin use the Balearic airport as their hub for flights to Barcelona, Ibiza, Valencia and Palma de Mallorca.

Menorca, the second largest island in the Balearic archipelago, offers more relaxing holidays for families than its noisier – if perhaps more glamorous neighbours – Mallorca and Ibiza. Several car rental companies offer affordable car hire options at the airport, making travelling around the island easy and comfortable. There are no trains and bus services are rather patchy, so hiring a vehicle is the best way to explore beautiful Menorca.

Days out to the neighbouring island of Mallorca are also easily arranged with ferry and hydrofoil connections running daily during the main tourist season. In just 55 minutes the hydrofoil crosses the 34 km stretch of Mediterranean Sea from Puerto de Ciutadella on Menorca to Cala Ratjada by Capdepera on Mallorca.

For passengers unsure of their hydrofoil sea-legs, there are traditional ferries that take just over 2.5 hours to make the journey from Puerto de Ciutadella to Puerto de Alcudia on Mallorca.

The new British Airways route is part of a triplet. BA also announced two new leisure routes to France (Anger and Quimper), which will be operational in May this year. The flights come complete with a 23kg luggage allowance, free-online check-in service and passengers can select their seats 24 hours prior to departure. There will also be complimentary drink and food served on board.
