British Airways will launch the first ever longhaul Club World service from London City airport this September. British Airways has taken the decision to press ahead with the launch of the twice-daily Club World service flights from London City to New York JFK service. The first flights are set for September 29th with tickets already on sale.
Willie Walsh, British Airways' chief executive said: "In the harshest
"There is real enthusiasm from our customers for this project. This is BA at its best - stylish, British and ahead of the game. Reviving the BA001 flight number for the first longhaul route out of London City could not be more appropriate.
"Every aspect of this service has been designed to maximise convenience for customers to fly between the world's two biggest business centres - Wall Street and London's extended financial district in the City and Docklands.
"The UK's first web access on transatlantic flights means that customers can work and keep in touch with the office between London and New York via the email and texts. Above all the exclusive service style will bring the feel of a private jet to a business class cabin."
Key benefits include: - Check in just 15 minutes before departure - Dedicated departure gate with 'lounge' facilities - Customs and Immigration clearance at Shannon, Ireland saving valuable time on arrival at JFK airport.
