British Airways is bringing a bit of winter sunshine to London City Airport by extending its popular Palma and Ibiza flights to a year-round service.

At present the two Balearic Island destinations are summer-only but from October they will continue through the winter with two flights a week on Thursdays and Sundays.

The news will come as a welcome boost to Ibiza since the island does not currently have a single direct service to the UK during the winter.

The two islands are very popular with leisure customers through the summer and now winter sun seekers and second home owners have the chance to fly there in style throughout the year. Holidays in Ibiza offer something for everyone. Away from the lively nightlife hotspots, the island harbours secluded coves, family resorts, pine-scented hills and vibrant Catalan culture. The glamorous Ibiza Town is another draw full of ancient sites and party venues.

Luke Hayhoe, general manager commercial, BA CityFlyer, said: "Leisure flying is a really important part of our business now from London City. Winter sun breaks are a very popular market and with London City's unique 20 minute check-in time with luggage customers can leave the gloom of winter and be in the sun in less than three hours."

The news follows the launch of new flights to Mahon in Menorca for summer 2012 which completes the airline's Balearic Islands portfolio. As the airline continues to grow its network customers have more choice to more business and leisure destinations, flying on one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the business.

British Airways offers all-inclusive fares to all destinations, which include a generous free 23kg luggage allowance, free on-line check-in and seat selection 24 hours before departure and complimentary food and drink on board.

New low all-inclusive one-way fares for winter and great value holiday packages are now available on ba.com

British Airways' winter 2012 schedule, beginning on October 28, 2012,  has been unveiled, with UK regions set to benefit thanks to parent company IAG's purchase of bmi.

The airline will add extra frequencies and use bigger aircraft on flights to Scotland enabling it to offer nearly 27,000 more seats a week between London and Scotland. This includes two extra flights a day between London Heathrow and Edinburgh and two extra flights per day between Heathrow and Aberdeen.

In addition British Airways is also starting a three-per-day service between London City and Aberdeen on September 24 to connect the two business hubs.

From December 9, British Airways will start four flights per day between Heathrow and Leeds Bradford, connecting Yorkshire with the airline's extensive global route network at Heathrow and increasing consumer choice in the North of England. The airline has already taken over bmi's six daily flights to Belfast, and will be launching a new timetable of seven flights a day between London and the Northern Irish capital on October 28.

A new London City to Isle of Man route has also recently launched.

At the time of EU approval for the bmi deal, IAG committed to launching new flights to important trading nations and delivering on that, British Airways is to begin flying six times a week to Seoul in South Korea from December 2, 2012.

Brand new, three times a week Las Vegas flights from London Gatwick start on October 29.

In Europe, Zagreb in Croatia will benefit from new daily flights to Heathrow from December 9 and six flights a week to Venice will be added to the London City route network on September 17. Customers looking for holidays in Barcelona will benefit from more choice with a new three-per-week service from London Gatwick to Barcelona will launch on February 23, 2013.

From October 28, former bmi routes from London Heathrow to Agadir, Bergen and Stavanger will become new British Airways routes from Terminal 5, while former bmi routes to Belfast and Hanover will become new British Airways Terminal 1 routes.

British Airways aircraft and crew will operate these routes, and customers will receive the full-service airline's on-board experience.

A number of existing British Airways routes including Basel, Dusseldorf, Luxembourg, Lyon and Toulouse will move from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1 on October 28.

There will be an increase in frequencies in winter 2012 (versus winter 2011) from Heathrow to Aberdeen (from six to eight flights per day), Edinburgh (from 10 to 12 flights a day), Manchester (from 10 to 11 flights a day), Oslo (from four to five flights per day), Zurich (from six to seven per day) and Phoenix (from six to seven flights per week). Flights to Bologna will be consolidated at Heathrow, with an increase in frequency on the existing Heathrow service from seven per week to 21 per week.

At Gatwick, services will increase to Faro (from four to five flights per week), Malaga (from seven to ten flights per week) and Marrakech (three to seven flights per week) from October 28, and extra services will be added to Salzburg and Turin for the winter ski season. Flights to Marseille will move from Gatwick to Heathrow on October 28.

ROCHESTER, MN – June 27, 2012 – EXHIBITOR Media Group, the leader in trade show and corporate event marketing education, today announced that exhibit and event professionals' average base salaries increased 7.9 percent since 2011, marking the second largest year-to-year uptick in the 26-year history of the survey (bested only by an increase of more than 8 percent in 2006).
 
'The results of the Salary Survey are a mixed bag of equally mixed messages,' commented Travis Stanton, editor of EXHIBITOR magazine. 'The increase in average base salaries is good news, but bonuses and additional compensation have taken a nose dive, leaving average total compensation four percent below 2011 figures.  All told, when you combine this year's average base salary with the average additional-compensation figure, you find that respondents are taking home less, on average, than they did in 2011.'
 
Surprisingly, both job satisfaction and the percentage of face-to-face marketing professionals who feel fairly compensated is up, compared to 2011, despite that shortfall. Plus, it appears that recessionary layoffs are a thing of the past. Sixty-seven percent of respondents say their department has stayed the same size since 2011, while another nineteen percent reported growth.
                                                                
The results of EXHIBITOR Magazine's 26th Annual Salary Survey, sponsored by Lynch Exhibits Inc., will be published in the July 2012 issue of EXHIBITOR Magazine.
