British Airways is set to gain monopoly status on flights between London City Airport and Edinburgh.
The airline, which operates up to 8 flights a day, had faced competition from CityJet on the route (with up to 4 flights per day). However, CityJet have announced this week that they will discontinue flights between the 2 capitals from 26th October.
CityJet had flown the route since 2007 but had been making losses for some time now, unable to compete with the more muscular British Airways. It is not yet known whether British Airways will increase frequency or capacity on the route.
