British Airways launches new route from London City to Chambery


British Airways is extending its route network from London City Airport this winter with a new flight from London to Chambery, the gateway to the French Alps.

The service, by BACityFlyer, the wholly owned subsidiary of British Airways, will operate four times a week from 18th December until the end of March 2011, using the airline’s fleet of brand new Embraer 190 aircraft. Flights to Chambery will depart on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with flights from the French ski destination back to London on Mondays, Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Luke Hayhoe, BA CityFlyer commercial manager said: "Our schedule is ideally set up to give our customers the opportunity to spend a long weekend, a full week, or even longer, skiing on some of the world’s best slopes and resorts.

“Only a few short hours after taking off from London’s Docklands, our customers can be in a winter wonderland of 120 ski resorts, all set amidst the majesty and splendour of the French and Swiss Alps.”

Chambery is a great base for ski holidays and British Airways offers a selection of hand picked hotels in countless world-class ski areas close by. By booking Avis car hire, customers will have great flexibility to make up their perfect ski holiday. Espace Killy which is home to the renowned Val d’Isere and Tignes val Claret resorts and the Three Valleys including Brides les Bains are within easy reach – meaning a Chambery break is perfect for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities.

Customers can choose the four-star Chalet Hotel Kava in the Belleville Valley, the most authentic of the Three Valleys, which benefits from a magnificent placement on the slopes. Or, stay in Bride Les Bains where British Airways offer stays in the charming three-star Amelie hotel, located conveniently close to the cable car, the family run two-star L’Hotel Athena or the modern two-star La Vanoise. The three-star L’Oree des Pistes in Les Deux Alpes is ideal for ski breaks.

Avis car hire is available at Chambery and can be purchased as a package including flights and car hire.
