London Gatwick Airport gains new Caribbean route

Fri, 22 May, 2009

London Gatwick Airport travellers will soon be able to fly to a couple of Dominican Republic destinations.

British Airways is launching the services to the country later this year.

Set to take off twice-weekly from October 25th, the company commented it is "reinforcing its position as the airline with more flights to the Caribbean".

Tickets for the flights go onsale today (May 22nd) through the firm's website, with fares to Montego Bay starting at £634 and Punta Cana at £559.

Head of sales at the organisation Richard Tams remarked popular demand was the key reason for the additions.

"These new routes and increased frequencies underline our commitment to the Caribbean," he said. "We now operate to 13 destinations in the [region] - more than any other UK airline."

Customers choosing to start their journey in the comfort of their cars are advised Gatwick is located between London and Brighton – it is 28 miles from each city.

There are a number of airport parking options at the hub, including long and short-stay.
