Airbus A318 Fleet Pages

The introduction of the A318 at London City marked the airport’s first longhaul route and BA’s first all-Business Class service from the UK.


Marketed as Club World London City the aircraft maintain a twice daily weekday service between London City and New York JFK with a single rotation operating on weekends. Westbound services make a re-fuelling stop at Shannon where there is a flight crew change and where passengers on one of the two flights are able to clear US Customs and Immigration, thus arriving in New York as domestic passengers.















British Airways Airbus A318 Fleet List

Just eight rows of 2 x 2 full flat seating are fitted and passengers benefit from internet access throughout the flight. From September 5th 2011 in flight entertainment has been provided by I-pads pre-loaded with audio and video content.

The service has the support of many major banks and initial load factors were above BA’s projections.

From 11th June 2012 the Club World London City service and the operation of the two A318s was taken over by a new subsidiary called British Airways Ltd.

The aircraft are maintained at London Gatwick and regularly position between London City and London Gatwick at weekends. Flight crew are from London Heathrow with cabin crew being based at London Gatwick.
