British Airways has announced an increase in the number of flights to Gibraltar on certain weekends from this spring to autumn.
According to a news release from the Gibraltar government, this is the first time Gibraltar’s international airport will schedule three flights to Heathrow on the same day: on three Saturdays in April, two in May, two in June, two in July, four in August, five in September and four in October.
“This is welcome news for overnight tourism, our hotels and Gibraltar PLC on the whole,” said minister for business and tourism Vijay Daryanani. “The airline industry is extremely challenging and competitive. I have been asking British Airways to increase flights as they have been busy on most days so I am glad to see these extra flights materialise. This is the first time ever that we have three flights to Heathrow on the same day. I hope we can continue to convince the operators to increase capacity to Gibraltar in the future.”
