BA to launch new routes from London Gatwick Airport

Mon, 26 Oct, 2009

London Gatwick Airport is set to play host to several new routes from British Airways (BA).

The airline is launching new services this week to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and Montego Bay in Jamaica from the airport.

It is also starting new routes from London Gatwick Airport to Innsbruck, Sharm El Sheikh and Male in the Maldives.

Mike Luddy, commercial director at the airport, said: "Gatwick Airport Limited is delighted that British Airways will bring these prestigious routes to our airport and further extend the fantastic range of destinations BA has on offer from Gatwick."

From summer 2010, BA will also be increasing the frequency of its flights from the airport to a variety of destinations in the Caribbean.

BA currently carries more than three million passengers a year from the airport.

Last week, investment fund Global Investment Partners bought London Gatwick Airport for a price of £1.5 billion.
