London City Airport in the UK has resumed flights to Zürich, the largest city in Switzerland.

BA CityFlyer, a wholly owned subsidiary airline of British Airways, has started operating five flights a week between the two airports.

Last year, the route was one of the most popular routes of London City Airport, with 429,019 passengers travelling between the UK capital and Swiss city.

London City Airport chief commercial officer Richard Hill said: “This is a positive step for the airport, good news for business travel, and an important step in the economic recovery.

“Zürich is a key hub of international business, finance, and government. So, it is crucial that London has strong, fast and easy connections direct from the centre of the capital.

“We’re also hopeful that, with the Covid-19 case rate consistently falling in Switzerland, the government will remove it from the quarantine list. This would be enormously welcome for our airlines and would allow them to schedule more routes and rotations through the winter season.”

London City Airport is one of the busiest airports in the London area by passengers and aircraft movements. Last month, the airport unveiled restructuring plans that will involve axing up to 239 jobs, equal to around 35% of its workforce.

The authority said that the Covid-19 pandemic caused an unprecedented downturn forcing the airport to trim its workforce.

London City Airport resumed operations on 21 June 2020 with several safety measures in place.
