British Airways will return to the island of Fuerteventura from December of this year, with twice weekly flights from London Gatwick.
Flights operate on a summer seasonal basis to Fuerteventura airport on Wednesday and Saturday.

Two points to note from this:
First, it’s a sign of return of growth by BA to Gatwick after a very long period of contraction in its short-haul network.
Second, it’s also an indication that future short-haul route launches at Gatwick are likely to be longer-range flights for holidaymakers rather than short-haul routes that are well covered by easyJet.
