BA to launch business-class only service to New York

BA is to launch a business-only service from London City airport to New York.


The service, which is due to start next year, was announced as a part of BA’s financial results for the nine months to the end of December 2007.


Operating profits were up 28.5% on the previous year to £734m.


British Airways’ chief executive Willie Walsh, said, “This is another good set of results despite soaring fuel costs and difficulties in the market.  Revenue up some one per cent and a strong cost performance has led to an operating profit up 28.5 per cent. While fuel costs in the first six months were down £36 million, they have soared £72 million in the third quarter.
