Majorca and Ibiza are to be served by new British Airways flights this summer.

The airline is to start summer-only services from Edinburgh to Palma, Majorca in June and Dublin to Ibiza in May.

The Edinburgh service will depart on Fridays while flights from Dublin will operate out on Fridays and back on Sundays.

Single fares from Edinburgh to Palma start at £59 and Dublin to Ibiza from €49.

The routes will be operated by Embraer 190 jets.

BA general manager customer and commercial, Luke Hayhoe, said: “These new flights will give our customers in Ireland and Scotland the opportunity to jet off to the sunshine direct from their doorstep.

“Flights from Dublin are ideal for travellers looking for flexibility with options from a two-night stay to a longer holiday in Ibiza and from Edinburgh the flights are well timed for travellers looking for one or two week holidays in Majorca.”
