British Airways (BA, London Heathrow) will terminate its summer-only seasonal Mediterranean routes out of Birmingham Int'l and Bristol Int'l at the end of October 2018 and will not resume these flights in 2019, the Bristol Post has reported.

"We have decided not to resume flights from Birmingham and Bristol next summer due to the complexity and cost of operating from airports where we have no crew bases," BA CityFlyer General Manager (Commercial and Customer) Luke Hayhoe said.

The carrier launched services out of the two regional airports in summer 2017, marking the return to both airports after a ten-year-hiatus. Until 2007, BA used to operate domestic flights in the UK between regional airports, which were subsequently mostly taken over by flybe. (BE, Exeter).

According to the ch-aviation capacity module, BA serves each of the British airports 4x weekly and flies from each of them to Malaga, Palma Son Sant Joan, and Florence Peretola. All flights are operated by BA CityFlyer (CJ, London City) with EMB-190 equipment. The airline does not base its crew at either of the two airports.

BA is the only carrier to connect Bristol and Birmingham with Florence. On the Spanish routes, it competed with Ryanair, easyJet, Thomas Cook Airlines UK, TUI Airways, and Jet2.
