British Airways will extend its Gatwick-Saint Lucia service this winter, capitalising on Virgin Atlantic’s decision to pull its Saint Lucia route.
BA will increase its daily winter service to nine-times-weekly with the addition of new flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays, matching its summer service.
BA also plans to increase its five-times-weekly Gatwick-Cancun service to six-times-weekly with the addition on a new Sunday flight from 6 December, and to add two extra Gatwick-Cape Town flights from 10 January 2021, growing frequency to 19 a week.
Virgin on Wednesday (12 February) announced it would return to Cape Town in October after a six-year hiatus.
The carrier’s daily Heathrow-Cape Town service will get under way on 25 October.
