BA reveals Gatwick plans

Thu, 27 Mar, 2008

British Airways (BA) has announced it is to commence flying to 11 new European destinations from London Gatwick Airport this summer.

The carrier's new services are aimed at the tourist market and most fly to sunshine holiday destinations.

These include the Spanish resorts of Alicante, Ibiza, Malaga and Palma, together with Gibraltar, Malta, the Greek city of Paphos, Antalya in Turkey and the Algarve's capital Faro.

In addition to the holiday hotspots, the new routes also fly to the cities of Genoa and Poznan. A new service to Tunis is also being launched.

The current BA service from London Heathrow Airport to Warsaw is to switch to London Gatwick Airport, but flights to Dallas, Houston and Algiers are to move to the capital's busiest transport hub.

Those services switching to London Heathrow Airport will use the new Terminal Five, which is scheduled to come into service on Thursday March 27th when a BA flight from Hong Kong lands.
