Two new British Airways 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, the company said.
To celebrate the launch Helen Jones, British Airways´ marketing manager, donned her ski gear to wave customers off as they checked-in for the inaugural flights.
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.
Club Europe and eligible Executive Club customers are also able to use the rooftop British Airways Terraces Lounge at Manchester Airport. Club customers receive complimentary food and drinks on board, a generous free baggage allowance and free seat selection and on-line check-in.
