Later this month British Airways will resume operations at Gatwick South, initially operating long-haul services to The Caribbean.

The other main news from the airport is the reopening of its Aspire Lounge in the North Terminal.

A Gatwick spokesperson said: "We are pleased that British Airways is to resume long-haul services from Gatwick in mid-July and that passengers can once again enjoy the benefits of travelling further afield, whether flying for leisure or on business.

"We hope that BA's short-haul services also return to the airport in coming months.  Our other airlines are offering a growing number of short-haul services however, so that passengers using Gatwick will continue to benefit from a wide choice of destination."  No formal statement has been issued by BA.

All flights are by Boeing 777.

I have tried to look through British Airways media release library in the hope/expectation of finding out what is going on with flights to the United States. No wonder the press don’t like the airline. Not a thing. I was once a journalist and we do need a little help. The web site must be the worst of any airline and unless you want a specific destination on a specific day impossible to find oneself around. https://mediacentre.britishairways.com/?articleType=Latestnews
