    Default BA announces new Florida route from Gatwick

    FOr those who travel from Gatwick, this might be of interest

    British Airways will fly from London Gatwick to Fort Lauderdale from July 6.

    The year round service will fly four times a week in the peak summer season and three times a week for the rest of the year.

    Served by a 777-200 aircraft, it will be BA's third route from Gatwick to Florida.

    One-way fares start from 189.

    Colm Lacy, British Airways' head of commercial for Gatwick, said: "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."

    BA2169 will depart from Gatwick at 09:25 and arrive at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport at 13:45 while the BA2168 will leave Fort Lauderdale at 17:00, arriving into Gatwick at 06:30 the next day.

    That's very well priced, I sense they are going after Norwegian quite aggressively on this route. If only they would price their Orlando route as keenly!
    5 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.

    All my trip reports are now HERE.

    Always good to see an alternative route into Florida. And, with increased capacity from both Virgin and Thomas Cook as well next year, it's possible we could see some decent prices all-round. Fingers crossed!

    It's certainly positive news in the wake of the post Brexit bad news.
