British Airways announced that flights will be launched between London Gatwick and Antalya, Turkey. The summer route, which will run six days a week on an Airbus A320, begins on April 30th and is available for booking. The Antalya announcement comes as the airline adjusts its Gatwick schedule for summer 2020.
Adam Carson, Gatwick’s British Airways managing director, said: “When flying to Turkey with British Airways next summer, holiday makers will look forward to another choice.” We are excited to announce the addition of Antalya to our Gatwick network after months of planning.
“We are committed to providing flights and holidays at competitive prices to a wide variety of destinations to help people get their travel plans off the ground.” Antalya is often described as the gateway to the Turkish coast with some of Turkey‘s most amazing landscapes. Sunbathing, surfing and water sports are ideal for the beaches and the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea.
As well as the rolling hills and beaches, the area has two thousand years of history with a collection of stunning temples and nearby Greco-Roman ruins, as well as a vibrant food and cultural scene. The new route to Turkey complements Dalaman’s summer Gatwick service and year-round flights from Istanbul to Heathrow. British Airways flies to more than 70 destinations from Gatwick, offering a variety of routes to suit both business and leisure travellers.
