"From May 28, the UK flag carrier will launch flights to Malaga, Palma and Ibiza in Spain and Faro in Portugal.
They will be operated by wholly-owned British Airways subsidiary BA CityFlyer on modern 98-seat Embraer 190 jets, which are usually based at London City Airport.
Stansted managing director Andrew Harrison said: "I am delighted to welcome British Airways to Stansted and very much look forward to the launch of its first ever scheduled flights from the airport in May.
"Since we acquired Stansted, our focus has been on attracting a wider choice of airlines and these new services to Faro, Malaga, Palma and Ibiza are strong additions to our route network, which now covers over 170 destinations across Europe and North America.
"I'm sure these routes will be very popular with passengers from across London, Cambridge and the growing East of England region who are looking to head off on their holidays. We look forward to working closely with British Airways to build a strong working relationship and ensure these new flights are a huge success."
All British Airways flights include a choice of two cabins, Club Europe and Euro Traveller, free seat selection and online check-in 24 hours before departure, complimentary refreshments and drinks on board and no debit card charges.
Fares start from £49 each way based on a return fare with hand baggage only, inclusive of all taxes, fees and charges.
Luke Hayhoe, BA's general manager commercial and customer at BA CityFlyer, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for us to expand our London network and to give our customers even more choice of where to fly from this summer.
"Stansted is a growing airport and we will be offering a full scheduled service to some of the most popular European holiday destinations, complementing our existing services from other London airports."
British Airways operates from the three other major London airports, Heathrow, Gatwick and London City."
