The services will operate on Monday and Friday from 25 June to 27 September on BA CityFlyer’s Embraer E190 aircraft.

‘We’re confident our new route from London City Airport to Guernsey will be popular this summer with customers looking for a UK getaway. And, it’s an honour to be launching the only direct service between Guernsey and Edinburgh this summer,’ said Tom Stoddart, managing director of BA CityFlyer.

Flights from London City Airport to Guernsey will start from £90 return or £70 + 2,900 Avios points, with Guernsey to Edinburgh starting from £78 return or £58 + 2,900 Avios points.

The airline also said it offered a flexible booking policy for customers and had multiple Covid-19 safety measures in place.

The London City route was pulled by Aurigny in October 2017 after two years in operation.

It had an average load capacity of less than 50% and was loss-making.

Blue Islands offers connecting flights to Edinburgh during the summer.
