New Gatwick Routes For British Airways

Photo Gatwick Airport
London Gatwick Airport will see another two transatlantic routes added to its international destinations from next year after British Airways announced it will be adding services to Toronto and Las Vegas from the Sussex airport.

From 1st May the British carrier will be operating three flights a week to the Canadian city of Toronto, a Las Vegas service will be returning to the airport also with three flights a week, starting from 27th March. 

The new flight to Toronto will be British Airways’ first flight to Canada from Gatwick, it follows the recent introduction of new long-haul routes to Oakland and Fort Lauderdale in America.

Las Vegas is already a popular destination for the airline from its Heathrow home, however, such is the great demand for the neon capital that the airline will now offer a service from Gatwick as wel

The additional two destinations takes the number of new routes introduced at Gatwick in 2017 to six and the total number of routes flying from Gatwick to 71, 24 of them long-haul and 47 short-haul.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ director of networks and alliances, said: “Gatwick has always offered a great range of long-haul destinations, but adding Toronto and Las Vegas to the summer schedule will take the number of transatlantic routes to 21, making Canada, the US and the Caribbean more accessible than ever before."

“It’s particularly exciting to be adding Canada to the list of places our customers will be able to explore from Gatwick, and we look forward to welcoming our Canadian customers in to London.”

Summer 2018 fares on the Toronto flights in World Traveller will start from £453 return and fares to Las Vegas from Gatwick will start from £699 return, including taxes and charges.

British Airways Customers travelling from Gatwick will benefit from British Airways’ modern facilities at Gatwick’s south terminal, after the airline moved in at the start of the year.

Those travelling in Club World will also have access to a sophisticated new lounge area at Gatwick, which opened in spring as part of the airline’s multi-million pound investment to benefit its customers with a focus on excellence in the premium cabins and more choice and quality for all.
