Gatwick to Fort Lauderdale flights announced

British Airways has announced the launch of a new Gatwick service to Fort Lauderdale, the airline’s third Florida route from Gatwick.

The new Gatwick flights will commence on 6 July 2017, operating three times per week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) using a 777-200 aircraft. During the peak summer season, a four-times-weekly service will operate.

Colm Lacy, British Airways’ head of commercial for Gatwick, said: “British Airways will now serve four Florida gateways, offering more seats from London to the sunshine state than any other carrier. It’s a city that boasts beautiful beaches, Venice-like waterways, an international yachting scene and world-class restaurants, and is also within easy reach of Miami, so customers can visit both destinations as part of a trip to the sunshine state.

“More than 2.8 million international visitors head to Fort Lauderdale every year and we are confident this route will be a big hit with British tourists, especially with each way fares from £189 per person which includes a generous complimentary baggage allowance and free food, drink and entertainment.”
