The new twice-weekly service to Chambery will start on December 16, complementing the British Airways service from London City Airport which operates three times a week, increasing to a daily service over the Christmas and New Year period.
Chambery is a gateway to several leading ski resorts, including Meribel, Courchevel and La Plagne. The airline, which began flying from Stansted for the first time in May this year, is also extending its Berlin service throughout the winter, after a successful summer flight schedule.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ general manager commercial and customer said: "Our flights from Stansted have proved so popular with customers that we wanted to continue flying through the winter. The introduction of the new service to Chambery also gives skiers and winter sports enthusiasts a gateway to one of the best Alpine snow regions direct from their doorstep."
