Increased flights to US

Wed, 10 Oct, 2007

Flights to America from London are to be increased with immediate effect due to customer demand, it has been announced.

From October 20th, passengers flying from London Gatwick will be able to choose from an increased array of flights to JFK airport offered by operator MAXjet. This will be increased over the following months to a ten times weekly service.

New flights to Los Angeles and Las Vegas will also be introduced within coming months as part of the overhaul.

Bill Stockbridge, the airline's chief executive, said that the decision to increase the number of flights was due to customer demand.

"MAXjet customers have made it clear to us that they need more frequent service between London Stansted and Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York," he commented.

He added that providing customers with the routes they demand is the key to the airline's success.

It was recently announced that the Manchester to Stansted service will see an increased number of flights when Eastern Airways takes over from current operator Air Berlin.
