Flights to Toulon and Murcia start in May
British Airways franchise operator, GB Airways, has announced two new routes from Gatwick this May.
Following recent developments in the aviation market in the UK, the airline has decided to start flying from Gatwick to Toulon-Hyeres, in southern France and Gatwick to Murcia, in Spain.
Toulon flights will start on the 1 May 2003, with five weekly flights increasing to a daily service in the peak summer months. Return flights will start at £89 including taxes, fees and charges.
Three weekly flights from Gatwick to Murcia will start on the 20 May 2003 with lead fares of ?139 return including taxes, fees and charges.
John Patterson, managing director GB Airways said: "In light of the changes in the networks operated by other UK airlines, we have managed to add these two new routes to our network very quickly, with flights going on sale from tomorrow afternoon (Thurs, 27 Feb). We would hope that many of the passengers who had intended to fly to these places will now take advantage of our low fares and that they can continue with their holiday plans."
He added: "We have been analysing these routes for a while with a view to starting them in the next couple of seasons, however we feel that now is the best time to start and we are confident that they will be a success."
All flights will offer a two class cabin, Club Europe and Euro Traveller with an inflight meal service, complimentary bar, minimum seat pitch of 31" and all the other benefits of flying with a full service airline. Connections from regional UK airports will also be available.
Good to see BA adding new destinations though operated by franchisees...
So this summer BA is adding:
