British Airways to launch New Routes from Gatwick Next Summer

Travel News Asia Wednesday, 22 November 2006

British Airways is to start new routes from London Gatwick to Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago, Dresden in Germany and Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina from March 2007.

Flights to Port of Spain will operate three times each week via Barbados on a Boeing 777.

The airline has signed a codeshare agreement with Caribbean Airlines whose flight code will be placed on British Airways' services to Port of Spain, Barbados and Antigua. Caribbean Airlines' customers will be able to redeem frequent flyer rewards on these British Airways' services.

There will be daily flights to Dresden and three flights each week to Sarajevo, both of which will be operated by Boeing 737s.

Robert Boyle, British Airways' commercial director, said, With the new route to Port of Spain, we will serve 10 destinations in the Caribbean including Tobago. Port of Spain is primarily a business destination due to its oil and gas industry but there is a thriving leisure market as well. We also welcome Caribbean Airlines as our latest codeshare partner.

Dresden is an important cultural, political and economic centre while Sarajevo is undergoing economic redevelopment and is the gateway to tourism in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Two new British Airways' routes start this winter. On December 1, 2006, the airline will start flying from London Heathrow to Calgary in Canada with five flights each week. On the same day, a new service from London Gatwick to Salzburg in Austria will start with five flights each week.

Flights from London Gatwick to Athens, Kiev, Newcastle and Riga will be suspended from March 2007. Services from London Heathrow to Athens, Kiev and Newcastle are unaffected.
