Irish flag carrier Aer Lingus is axing its services to London Gatwick and London City Airport within months, reports the Irish Independent.
It is also offloading its six BAe 146 jets ahead of a major decision on its airfleet, according to the paper.
Chief executive Willie Walsh said the airline is pulling out of Gatwick because it is failing to pick up business from other airlines, while London City Airport can't accommodate Airbus or the Boeing 737, the paper adds.
The board is expected to meet in September and will recommend whether the company opts fro Airbus or Boeing aircraft for its European routes, as Aer Lingus refashions itself as a low-cost carrier, the Independent reported.
...... BA will fill the LGW gap, but who's going to take over LCY-DUB???? Any ideas???
