British Airways has launched a new route from London Gatwick to Fuerteventura.
It will become the fourth Canary Island to be served by the new BA Euroflyer short haul operation from Gatwick, following Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria.
Services start on 2nd November and are currently scheduled to operate until 27th March.
Flights will operate on Thursdays and Sundays, with a Wednesday service being added from 28th February 2024.
There is a mini-sale on Euro Traveller (Economy) tickets until 18th June, with the lead-in price reduced from £129 return to £114 return.
Tickets are available to book now, for cash or Avios.
The full Summer 2024 timetable from Gatwick has started to appear for booking in recent days. We’ll publish a full list of services soon but if you were looking for Avios seats from Gatwick then April and May 2024 are now bookable. Whilst British Airways flights are usually made available 355 days before departure, the new BA Euroflyer operation is taking it more slowly as it builds up speed.
You can search prices and Avios availability at ba.com.
