This includes two flights this summer from Southampton Airport, with BA City Flyer.

Brits can now fly from the airport to both Bergerac and Majorca, which launched over the weekend.

This is in addition to Faro and Malaga, which already operated from Southampton with British Airways, as well as winter flights to Chambery.

The airport said on X, formerly known as Twitter: “We have a busy weekend here at SOU, with two new summer routes launching with British Airways.

“Fly to Bergerac from tomorrow and Majorca from Sunday.”

While Majorca is a popular Spanish destination for Brits, Bergerac in France is often overlooked, despite it’s renowned vineyards and Dordogne river boat trips.

Flights to Majorca start from £180 and flights to Bergerac can be found for £136.

Other British Airways routes from Southampton include Faro, Majorca, Edinburgh and Dublin.

Airlines such as easyJet also operate from the airport, with flights to Alicante, Faro and Geneva, while TUI holidays also operate from Southampton.

Last month, an airline confirmed plans to launch it’s first UK flights from Southampton Airport.
