British Airways (London) meanwhile is expanding its aircraft fleet and route network at London City Airport where it is now officially the largest operator with the highest number of routes and customers.
Subsidiary BA CityFlyer will take delivery of another Embraer 190 in the late summer, bringing the total fleet size to 14 aircraft.
It will be used for new year-round flights to Venice in September and to increase frequency to the key business destinations of Frankfurt from March and Glasgow from September.
The news comes as BA CityFlyer is about to start brand new services from the Docklands airport to Mahon in Menorca, Quimper in Britanny and Angers in the Loire Valley in France from May.
A total of 22 destinations in the UK, Europe and the USA will be served by British Airways and BA CityFlyer from London City Airport.
