new route Bern-Belp to London City airports
 
Six flights a week with airline FlySkyWork. Starts with summer timetable on Sunday 27. March 2011, from Bern-Belp to London-City.

http://www.flyskywork.com/18-0-Flugplaene.html

CHF 79,-- each way, including 20Kg luggage. Seat reservation extra 2x CHF 7.50
one adult person return flight total = CHF 173,-- children under 12, ticket costs CHF 55,30 return

They are in competition with Swiss and Easyjet, and I think for the Bernese they are offering an excellent service.

Please spread the word, if we don't use it we'll loose it, like all the others that have gone before. At least this one has a decent price.

The Bern airport bus departs from the Post Bus station, upstairs above the railway station, near the car parks.

Even better news is that the same airline starts services from Bern to Berlin, Barcelona, Hamburg and Rotterdam from January.

I hope it works out, but buy travel insurance. :o

I'll be definitely using this next year. I fly to City every few weeks and leaving from Belp will be like all my Christmases come at once.

Nope not yet. I fly intermittently so the dates and times I need to be in London are not know until a few days before.

Only problem with Skywork for me are the flight times, they are dusk/night flights and that doesn't always suit my schedule.... still I'll try them a few times.

I'd advise trying this airline, not sure where they go and when, but they're EXTREMELY FUNNY :)

This is decent airline in my experience.

They've cut corners on their pretty shoddy online booking system, but as a passenger you're treated very well.

Thanks Ittigen - that could be really useful for our next trip or for our children visiting. How easy is it to get to airport from Bern rail station? Or do you have good advice for safe and not too expensive parking in the area.

Its a properly lovely airport too.....it makes a nice change from the huge airports of the world. Park in front of the terminal, 20 minutes check in time (still, I think?), walk to the plane in view of the mountains....great place!

Skyworks have now changed their pricing structure as follows:

http://www.flyskywork.com/111-1-Fare...1&currency=CHF

Basically they've now gone all Ryanair service but charge premium swiss prices.

15KG max luggage, no rebooking or child reduction unless you pay a high premium rate to begin with.

As it was I think they're having problems selling tickets. The London flights I've taken in the past few months were flying at under 20% capacity.

I can't forsee them surviving too long with a business plan like this. :msnsad:

Looking forward to my flight to London City with these guys. I'm at an offsite meeting in Bern all day, so couldn't be bothered to trek to Basel or Zurich to catch a London flight. Any idea if the plane will be a turbo prop or jet? I'd much prepare the turbo prop, its been more than 20 years since I last flew on one. I've checked my booking details and it doesn't say :confused:

If I recall my last Bern-LCY flight with Skywork it was a turbo prop. But they might cycle them depending on the route/time. Enjoy :)
