British Airways was due to launch a twice weekly service from London Gatwick to Gran Canaria from 29 March 2015. However, for “commercial reasons” (we assume poor forward bookings), the airline is to suspend the route.

Passengers will be accommodated on either a new Iberia Express service from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to Gran Canaria which launches on 30 March 2015 or BA’s Saturday service to Gran Canaria which also operates from Heathrow Terminal 5.

Alternatively, passengers have the option of flying to another nearby BA destination from London Gatwick (Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote), or via Iberia’s hub in Madrid. Passengers are also entitled to a full refund.

Other direct flights from London Gatwick to Gran Canaria are available from easyJet, Norwegian and Thomas Cook.
