British Airways is planning to open a new route from London (Gatwick) to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands.
The new route will operate two days a week starting on November 2, 2023 by BA Euroflyer.
British Airways later made this announcement:
BA Euroflyer, the wholly owned Gatwick-based subsidiary of British Airways, has added Fuerteventura to its route map.
Launching on November 2, 2023, Fuerteventura will join Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria as the fourth Canary Island served by the short-haul airline.
Flights will operate twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays during the winter season on a mix of A320 and A321 aircraft. A third flight will be introduced on Wednesdays from February 28, 2024.
Fuerteventura is the second largest Canary Island, known for its beautiful beaches, rugged coastline, and vast natural landscapes. It is a popular year-round destination for water sport enthusiasts, with conditions lending themselves to activities including surfing, sailing, and windsurfing.
Fuerteventura is the seventh new service to be added to BA Euroflyer’s route network this year. The airline recently announced new summer flights to Montpellier, Corfu, Mykonos and Salzburg in addition to new winter services to Sharm El Sheikh and Innsbruck.
*Limited availability. For travel on selected dates between 29.10.23 and 27.03.24. Black-out dates apply.
