British Airways is to cancel its Gatwick-Oakland service at the end of this summer, ending its brief presence on a route pioneered by budget rival Norwegian.
BA was due to resume summer flights to Oakland, which is a secondary airport for San Francisco, in April next year, but the three flights a week have now been pulled from reservations systems. BA only launched the route in March 2017.
BA said: “We regularly review our schedule to ensure that we are flying to destinations popular with our customers. We already operate two incredibly successful routes from the Bay area.
“We launched a new direct service to San Jose in 2016 and we have 21 flights a week to SFO and SJC alone. We’re incredibly committed to this region and to flying customers to these cities.”
