British Airways made this announcement:
As Manchester basks in a light dusting of snow the serious skiiers took off for the deeper slopes on the new British Airways flights to Salzburg and Chambery this past weekend.
The two new winter-only flights from Manchester will operate every Saturday through to April to Salzburg in Austria and Chambery in France, gateways to some of Europe’s top ski resorts.
In May the airline launched seven new summer-only routes from Manchester to popular leisure destinations in Europe as well as London City, providing more than 35,000 extra seats from the North West. Next May new services to Florence and Dublin from Manchester will start.
All flights will operate on modern Embraer 190 jet aircraft, with spacious cabins and two abreast seating so every customer can have an aisle or window seat.
- Flights to Salzburg operate every Saturday departing Manchester at 1.05pm, arriving in Salzburg at 4.20pm, with the return flight at 5.10pm, arriving in Manchester at 6.30pm
- Flights to Chambery operate every Saturday departing Manchester at 7am arriving in Chambery at 10am, with the return flight at 10.55am, arriving in Manchester at 12noon
