British Airways moves Gatwick short haul flights to Heathrow until September with routes cut
All flights that were due to run from Gatwick this summer to short haul destinations will be moved to Heathrow. This in addition to those that I previously announced had been moved to Heathrow.
The flights will operate at Heathrow until at least 9 September 2020. Long haul flights will resume from Gatwick on 17 July. As yet we do not know if there will be further cuts to long haul flights other than those mentioned below, but it has been confirmed that Barbados flights will definitely operate once a week from 18 July.
Alongside this some routes will be suspended completely and not move to Heathrow. These routes are:
London Gatwick – Almeria – permanently suspended
London Gatwick – Antalya – suspended until summer 2021
London Gatwick – Corfu (BA operates service to/from London Heathrow)
London Gatwick – Gran Canaria/Las Palmas
London Gatwick – Lima
London Gatwick – Milan Bergamo (suspended until late October)
London Gatwick – New York JFK
London Gatwick – Nice (BA continues to operate to/from London Heathrow)
London Gatwick – Rome (BA continues to operate to/from London Heathrow)
London Gatwick – San Jose (Costa Rica)
London Gatwick – Toronto (BA continues to operate to/from London Heathrow)
If you are due to fly on one of the routes that has moved, your ticket will automatically be changed to start from Heathrow. I would make sure you check this, as many flights may also change their departure times. You should get an official notification from British Airways. If you don’t wish to fly you have options as they have changed your departure airport so you should be able to get a refund or voucher.
British Airways has transferred the Jersey flight to Heathrow for the moment and announced the times of the flights. British Airways will resume service to Jersey from tomorrow. There will be one daily round-trip flight until 16 July when it will increase to twice daily. The service will be on an Airbus A319 aircraft.
