ITA Airways is introducing an additional daily flight between London City airport and Milan in the new year.
The capacity increase by the Italian carrier will see 24 flights a week to Milan’s Linate airport from January.
ITA Airways will operate aircraft carrying 125 passengers on the route.
The flights to Milan Linate are in addition to BA CityFlyer’s weekly service on Sundays.
The route links two of Europe’s key financial hubs and is used by many business travellers and large corporations including JP Morgan, Barclays and Credit Suisse.
London City chef commercial officer Andrew Hodges said: “Milan was previously one of our top five performing routes and we have recently seen huge pent-up demand from our passengers to travel to and from, so we’re delighted to be offering greater access to the city.”
Emiliana Limosani, chief commercial officer of ITA Airways and chief executive of loyalty scheme Volare, added: “We are pleased to be operating at London City, a favourite destination for business customers working in the British capital.
“We are also particularly proud to accompany our passengers with our brand new Airbus, which has just joined the fleet.
“The UK is a strategic market for ITA Airways, operating up to a maximum of 90 weekly roundtrip flights between London and its two hubs: Rome Fiumicino and Milan Linate.”
