The airline will also be recommencing domestic flights to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin – restoring important Anglo-Irish connections with the capital.
BA CityFlyer will reconnect the Isle of Man and London with daily flights between London City Airport and Douglas.
The airport already restarted domestic routes this month, with international flights scheduled to fly from July 4.
London City Airport CEO Robert Sinclair, said: “The restart of some services at London City Airport by our home-based carrier, British Airways, is good news for business and leisure passengers and we hope signals the start of the road towards a recovery.
“We believe there is demand from passengers to get back to flying and we have worked hard to make that possible – putting in place appropriate measures to make the airport safe and working closely with British Airways to restore some popular routes and important connections.
“We are looking forward to flights beginning to re-start and working with British Airways to grow passenger volumes and build on their route network in time as confidence returns.”
