British Airways is to launch a new route from Gatwick to Fort Lauderdale in Florida.
The airline will begin operating the service up to four times per week from July 6, 2017 – it will be BA’s fourth destination in Florida.
Currently BA already flies from Gatwick to Orlando and Tampa, as well as from Heathrow to Miami.
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.”
BA will serve the route using a Boeing 777-200 aircraft three times per week year-round with four weekly flights during the summer peak season.
The airline will fly from Gatwick to Fort Lauderdale on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays for the sumer season from July 6 to October 30, 2017, and on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from October 30 ,2017 – July 5, 2018.
