BA suspends London Gatwick – Tunis route from 27 October 2013

British Airways has announced it is to suspend its thrice weekly London Gatwick – Tunis route from 27 October 2013. No reason has been given for the cancellation, but unsatisfactory commercial performance is a likely reason and the route suspension is an indication of the ongoing commercial pressures BA faces in the short-haul market at Gatwick.

At this stage, passengers booked on services after 27 October 2013 only have the option of a refund or moving their booking to an earlier date, as there are no direct or indirect alternatives on BA. Further guidance should be provided on BA’s trade site.
