British Airways will launch a brand new route from Southampton to Salzburg, connecting the South coast with the slopes.
Flights will operate once a week, on Saturday from 11 December 2021.
The service is the second winter route launched by British Airways from Southampton, having previously announced flights to Chambery, France, will take off from 18 December 2021.
Tom Stoddart, Managing Director of BA CityFlyer which operates the routes, said: “Operating to Salzburg this Winter is a really exciting route launch of us. Customers are excited to get away and enjoy parts of Europe they haven’t been able to visit for nearly two years. British Airways fares start from £75 making it a very attractive option as a skiing destination this season.”
Matt Hazelwood, commercial director at AGS Airports, which owns Southampton Airport, said: “British Airways’ plans to launch a direct service between Southampton and Salzburg this December is fantastic news, particularly given the city hosts one of Europe’s best festive markets.
“The addition of a weekly service will be warmly welcomed by passengers keen to explore Salzburg’s UNESCO World Heritage Site historic centre, or to take to the slopes of one of the many ski resorts that neighbour this stunning Austrian city.”
