Ciao Milano........British Airways to launch a new route to Milan Bergamo from London Gatwick

From September this year passengers from London Gatwick will have another opportunity to say  "Ciao Italia" as British Airways introduce a new route to Milan Bergamo!

The new year-round service will operate six times a week from London Gatwick starting on 1st September, with fares starting at just £25 one-way.

Bergamo Airport is conveniently nestled between some of Italy’s most picturesque lakes and Milan.  The airport is 45km from the fashion capital known for its sophistication and creativity which is perfect for a weekend city break.  For those seeking a relaxed sunshine escape, Bergamo is the closest gateway to Lake Como and driving distance from Lake Garda, as well as the Franciacorta Wine Region. Bergamo also borders the Alps, providing access to a number of ski resorts during winter.

Adam Carson, British Airways’ Managing Director of Gatwick, said: “Milan Bergamo adds another exciting destination to our Gatwick network and is perfectly located for a city break, a summer visit to the lakes or even a skiing holiday in the Alps.

“From Gatwick, we fly to over 70 destinations as our network continues to expand we’re adding new routes designed to appeal to both leisure and business customers.”

The new route comes as British Airways is investing £6.5 billion to improve its customer experience over the next five years, including new aircraft, new cabins, new catering, new lounges, WiFi, and new routes.
