BA will fly to Kos three times weekly from Wednesday 15 May to Saturday 26 October 2019 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. As is par the course for BA at Gatwick, flight times vary widely by day.
Flights will be operated with a mixture of Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft in the standard two class, EuroTraveller and Club Europe, configuration.
This should just be the start of a number of summer seasonal route announcements both at Heathrow and Gatwick.
In terms of coverage of Greece, this summer BA has flown to Crete, Corfu, Kalamata, Kefalonia, Mykonos, Santorini and Zakynthos from Heathrow. It has also flown to Crete, Rhodes and Thessaloniki from Gatwick and Mykonos and Skiathos from London City.
BA has suspended another of its summer seasonal routes from London Heathrow: Kos.
Passengers whose flights have been cancelled are entitled to a full refund.
Passengers can also be re-accommodated on Austrian Airlines services from Vienna to Kos which operate up to three times weekly in the summer. However, the Monday service leaves Vienna at 08:05 making a same day connection in Vienna impossible.
Austrian Airlines does not operate a business class cabin on this route. So if you were booked into Club Europe you will be downgraded to economy. Passengers must also fly to Vienna on a BA operated flight for the connection to Austrian Airlines and fly between Saturday 5 May 2018 and Saturday 29 September 2018.
This also only applies to passengers who have paid for a cash ticket. If you have booked a flight using Avios your flight will be refunded.
It is quite common for BA to announce more rebooking options in the weeks after a route is cancelled. Therefore, if the above options are not satisfactory it is worth waiting a week or so to see if any alternatives emerge.
Affected passengers should contact either BA or their travel agent.
