With Gatwick airport reducing its operational hours and the lack of demand due to Covid-19, British Airways is suspending its operations at the airport.
With London City closed to commercial traffic (and the airline pulling down services a few days before that) and with no services from Gatwick (which was primarily a lesuire market), it leaves Heathrow Airport as its only operational hub.
The airline operates its Airbus A319/A320 fleet, as well Boeing 777-200ER aircraft from the airport.
In regards to the move, the airline says:
“Due to the considerable restrictions and challenging market environment, like many other airlines, we will temporarily suspend our flying schedule at Gatwick.”
As such, all British Airways to and from Gatwick Airport are suspended and of course – tickets cancelled. If you want a voucher, head to ba.com/confidence to get your voucher which will expire after a year.
Bear in mind – you will be suffering a cancellation, so you are legally entitled to a refund, which involves a phone call to British Airways.
And that in itself is a process – but possible.
I’ll have something about that another time…
