British Airways News Update: BA Add Flight Between Gatwick and Jersey
British Airways news update: British Airways have announced that they will be replacing Flybe’s flight between London Gatwick and Jersey from March 2014.
Aeroplane company Flybe have announced that as of March 2014 they will be stopping flights between London Gatwick and the channel island Jersey so British Airways have jumped in their place. They will be adding an extra weekday flight between the two locations to deal with the demand, meaning that they will now offer six flights on weekdays.
Flybe have decided to sell their Gatwick slots to fellow company Easyjet but the latter company did not opt to take up the flights between the two locations.
BA have announced that their service from London City Airport will increase with more flights to Stockholm and Madrid over the coming winter; just before their increased number of flights to Jersey that will operate Airbus A319s and Boeing 737s on the route.
It has been quoted that Jersey consider this to be ‘excellent news’ and welcome the increased service between themselves and the mainland. The flights will add an extra 650 seats per week, a significant increase to the numbers they are currently seeing.
A British Airways spokesperson said the additional flight improved connection times, flexibility and efficiency for onward flights to Europe. The prospect of this is something all business travellers will relish and holiday makers should hopefully find themselves with increased flight times too.
In 1934, a subsidiary company of British European Airways (an early version of British Airways) Jersey Airways first operated a flight route between London Gatwick and Jersey and the flight landed on the beach. Once it was clear there was a demand for the service, an airfield and terminal were built in 1937.
Flying with British Airways is always a pleasure whether it’s long or short haul and it’s a safe bet that they will be focussing on keeping their passengers as happy and relaxed as possible as they make the short flight across the English channel.
