BA announces Gatwick-Mahon summer service

British Airways has announced its first flights from London Gatwick to Menorca, taking over some of the slots vacated by the defunct Monarch airline.

BA will operate two or three flights weekly from LGW to MAH during the months of June, July and August, complementing its London Heathrow and London City to Mahon services, introduced a few seasons ago.

BA chairman and CEO Alex Cruz said: “We are delighted to be able to further grow our presence at Gatwick by adding extra frequencies and improving our timetable. We are also introducing several new destinations to the Gatwick programme, including Palma and Gibraltar.”

Gatwick is one of the best-served British airports in terms of Menorca flights, with services operated additionally by easyJet, Thomas Cook and Tui.

easyJet launches off-season Menorca flights

EasyJet has stepped in to take advantage of slots made available by Monarch’s demise to offer a weekly off-season direct flight service between London Gatwick and Menorca. The Tuesday flights will begin operating on 6 February and will continue through March.

From early April easyJet will operate the LGW-MAH route four times a week, with daily services starting from 23 April onwards until the end of October.

EasyJet UK country director Sophie Dekkers said: “By extending our summer season between London Gatwick and Mahon we are reaffirming our commitment to sustained growth at London Gatwick. We are always looking for new opportunities and to de-seasonalise tourism where we can meet demand for our customers.

“By adding flights to this route, we will provide our UK customers with even more opportunity to visit Menorca and improved connectivity for Menorca’s British expat community.”
