Gatwick and British Airways

British Airways has confirmed that the majority of its Gatwick short-haul services will continue to operate from Heathrow until the end of October.

The media was alerted to the news by this tweet by @LondonAirTravel, which said: “British Airways will not operate any short-haul flights at Gatwick until 30 October 2021. Short-haul flights were due to resume at the airport on 30 June.”

BA has been vague with its response and a further request for more information not responded to: “Until the end of October, most of our short-haul flights will continue to operate from Heathrow. This enables us to ensure a smooth, uninterrupted, and efficient operation across our business at a time when demand is yet to return and international travel restrictions remain in place.

“We’re proactively letting customers know and recommend they check their booking on ba.com prior to travel.”

Long-haul flights will continue to operate from the south London airport, as does a domestic service to Glasgow.  Sister company Vueling has filed for services to Paris CDG for the winter period.

Is BA coming back to Gatwick with European flights? We’ve lost Norwegian. I don’t want to drag to Heathrow, or even London City.
