British Airways will fly to the French Alpine city of Chambery from Stansted and is extending its Berlin service from the Essex hub through the winter.
The airline began operating from Stansted for the first time in May this year and the new twice-weekly service to the popular ski resort of Chambery will start on December 16.
Summer-only flights to Berlin, Faro, Ibiza, Malaga and Palma were due to run until the end of October, but Berlin will now continue through the winter.
Services to Faro and Malaga will also be extended until November 20.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways’ commercial and customer general manager, said: “Our flights from Stansted have proved so popular with customers that we wanted to continue flying through the winter.
