An iconic London taxi was on hand at Bremen Airport on Monday 31 October to help celebrate the launch of British Airways’ two new routes, operated by SUN-AIR, to London City and Manchester in the UK. Neither route is currently served. The Danish regional carrier, a franchise partner of British Airways, already serves both these UK airports from its Billund base.
- British Airways has started two new routes, operated by franchise partner SUN-AIR, from Bremen (BRE). On 31 October the Danish carrier began 10 times weekly flights on the 616-kilometre route to London City (LCY) and 11 times weekly flights on the 735-kilometre route to Manchester (MAN). Neither route is currently served by any other carrier, though Ryanair has in the past connected Bremen with Manchester. Both routes will be operated by a 32-seater Dornier 328 aircraft with full in-flight service that includes a meal and Dornier wines, ice cream dessert and daily newspapers. SUN-AIR already serves both of these UK destinations on behalf of British Airways from its home base in Billund, Denmark. Vote for Bremen Airport’s cake in this week’s competition.
