flights will operate early morning on Mondays and Fridays so that, as from 1st
May 2016, double daily services will operate on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and
Mondays. This will bring the weekly frequency of services offered to the London
hub to 11.
Tourism, the Hon. Samantha Sacramento said;” We are extremely pleased that BA
is adding additional capacity on this very popular service. The airline hereby
affirms its commitment to Gibraltar. The new flights will allow business day
returns from London on Mondays and Fridays, as well as additional connection
opportunities on the airlines’ extensive network from Heathrow.
It will also allow additional long weekend
break opportunities allowing visitors to maximise their stay on the Rock. This
is now the second time during our term in office that HM Government of
Gibraltar has worked with the airline to deliver more capacity to the Rock.
This is a result of our tireless efforts to promote Gibraltar’s tourism
industry. At a time when we have announced record numbers of travellers through
Gibraltar International Airport, we have no doubt that the business community
and the leisure industry will welcome this opportunity for further growth and consequential benefits to
the Rock’s economy.”
services will be available for sale shortly on www.ba.com
