Following our story last week (Gatwick to Lima) Laurie Price, he once of British Caledonian Airways and afterwards BA, has sent a list of South American cities previous destinations of the Gatwick-based carrier, to which British Airways is gradually returning. The policy in recent times is to try and persuade would-be travellers either way to use the Iberia Madrid hub.
The list is quite extensive.
Bogota (Colombia), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Caracas (Venezuela), Guayaquil (Ecuador), Lima (Peru), Quito (Ecuador), Recife (Brazil), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Santiago (Brazil), São Paulo (Brazil).
Laurie most recently chaired the General Aviation Challenge Panel reporting direct to Aviation Minister Robert Goodwill and CAA CEO Andrew Haines. He was Director of Aviation Strategy for consultants Mott MacDonald for an extensive period and Aviation Adviser to the UK House of Commons Select Committee on Transport for eight years. He currently acts in a similar way for UK House of Commons All Party Aviation Group. He holds a Master of Science Degree in Transportation Planning from the University of Westminster, is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, and sits on the Council of the Air League. He holds UK and US private pilot licences. www.ba.com www.british-caledonian.com
