British Airways‘ London City-based CityFlyer subsidiary has announced it will add a new route to its network from Glasgow (GLA) this summer. The service to Palma, Mallorca (PMI), will operate once per week on Saturdays during the summer period from 23 May to 17 October.

The schedule is planned as follows:

  • BA2349 Glasgow (GLA) 2:45 p.m. Departure ⇒ Palma (PMI) 6:55 p.m. Arrival
  • BA2348 Palma (PMI) 7:50 p.m. Departure ⇒ Glasgow (GLA) 9:55 p.m. Arrival

The route will be operated by one of the airline’s larger Embraer E190 aircraft.

Tickets are already on sale for the route. There are Reward Flight Saver seats available throughout the summer — including some availability even during the school holidays. In both Euro Traveller (economy) and Club Europe (business class) you can adjust the amount of cash and Avios to suit your points balances.

In Euro Traveller, the lowest cash price you can expect to pay is £0.50 + 12,000 Avios one-way.

And in Club Europe the lowest cash price is £0.50 + 22,000 Avios one-way.

If you’re short on Avios, keep in mind that you can increase your Executive Club balance quickly. Consider signing up for a cobranded British Airways credit card like the British Airways American Express Premium Plus Credit Card from Amex U.K., which comes with a welcome bonus of 25,000 Avios after spending £3,000 in the first three months. Alternatively, you can transfer American Express U.K. Membership Rewards points to Avios at a 1:1 rate.
