The service is the first of its kind for Bath people wanting to get to the airport who until now have had to via Bristol city centre to go on holiday.
The service will pick passengers up from outside the city’s bus station in Dorchester Street and will take an hour to get to the airport.
Mr Curtis said more details would be revealed in the coming weeks, and added that the cost of the journey had yet to be agreed.
He said: “This has been in the planning for some considerable time along with help from the local authority and the airport.
“It is obvious immediately that lots of tourist organisations want to be involved. Bath Tourism Plus are very supportive and no doubt we will be working further with them.”
The airport service will start on March 24 to coincide with the start of the district’s new spring bus timetables.
