British Airways has announced the launch of several new holiday routes from Gatwick for the Summer 2015 timetable.
The new routes are:
Bodrum (x 2 per week)
Cagliari (Sardinia) (x 3 per week)
Dalaman (x 4 per week)
Heraklion (Crete) (x 4 per week)
Rhodes (x 2 per week)
For me, Bodrum is the most interesting. This resort is being taken upmarket at the moment. If proof were needed, Mandarin Oriental is due to open a hotel in September. Kempinski has had a luxury resort there for a few years now – photo above.
All flights will start in the week of 26 April 2015.
Tickets are already on sale at ba.com although – because they are only released 355 days in advance – only the first couple of weeks are available. Avios tickets are also available for booking. Bodrum is 20,000 Avios return in economy for instance.
