British Airways - Biggest summer schedule in a decade at Gatwick
British Airways is turning up the heat at Gatwick as summer 2018 is set to be the airline’s biggest schedule in almost a decade.
In summer 2017 the airline operated around 1000 flights a week at its peak. More than 150 additional weekly flights will take to the skies this summer following the airline’s successful acquisition of Monarch’s take-off and landing slots.
Weekly flights to Malaga will be boosted from 27 to 35, Alicante from 14 to 22 and Faro from 17 to 21, while the airline’s summer flights to Tenerife will increase from six per week to 13, Madeira will be bolstered from six to nine per week and Lanzarote will rise from three to five flights per week at the Sussex based hub.
Over the Christmas period the airline added more than 40,000 further seats to the schedule for February and March. An additional 400 flights will operate between 9th February and 24th March meaning more low fares are available, even around peak periods.
