Gatwick extends its transatlantic network to Toronto and Las Vegas
British Airways has announced it will be adding another two new transatlantic routes to its summer 2018 schedule at Gatwick. Toronto in Canada, will be taking to the air from 1st May, with three flights per week, and Las Vegas will be returning with three flights a week from 27th March next year.
The new flight to Toronto will be British Airways’ first flight to Canada from Gatwick, and follows the recent introduction of new long-haul routes to Oakland and Fort Lauderdale in the US.
The Las Vegas route, which already operates from Heathrow, is in such high demand that the airline will now offer a service from the two biggest London airports to give customers access to a greater number of seats and a choice of departure airports.
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.
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.
