British Airways has announced the launch of flights between London Gatwick and Antalya, Turkey. The summer route, which will operate on an Airbus A320 and run six times a week, commences on April 30, 2020, and is available to book from today.
The Antalya announcement comes as the airline adjusts its Gatwick schedule for Summer 2020.
Antalya is often described as the gateway to the Turquoise Coast with some of the most stunning landscapes in Turkey. The beaches and crystal-clear Mediterranean Sea are perfect for sunbathing, swimming and water sports.
