British Airways is to restart short haul flights at London Gatwick Airport from Tuesday 29 March 2022.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic all BA short haul flights at Gatwick were suspended, apart from a daily flight to Glasgow. This operates as a “W pattern” flight as Heathrow – Glasgow – Gatwick – Glasgow – Heathrow.

BA has today, Tuesday 14 December 2021, confirmed its short haul flights network at Gatwick.

There are 35 routes, operated with a fleet of 18 Airbus A320 series aircraft. This is an initially smaller network than before COVID-19 and some Gatwick slots will be leased to easyJet.

The first routes will be Amsterdam, Larnaca, Paphos, Seville, Tenerife and Verona. Routes will be progressively added throughout April and May.

The new schedule includes many former Gatwick routes. As was par the course for BA at Gatwick, flight times vary by day.

There are also routes such as Athens, Berlin Brandenburg, Madrid and Milan Malpensa which were not immediately operated at Gatwick before COVID-19.

Some former Gatwick routes such as Genoa appear to be suspended.

These will all later transfer to a new airline company BA EuroFlyer Ltd. This does not yet have an Air Operators Certificate. It is possible that, like BA CityFlyer at London City, it will have its own flight number sequence, so there may be flight number changes when this takes place.

Some former Gatwick routes are expected to stay at Heathrow only. These include Algiers, Funchal, Jersey, Naples and Porto.

There are no UK domestic routes. These may continue to operate at Gatwick with Heathrow aircraft and crews.

At the time of publication schedule changes are still being made on It may be a while before timetables are fully updated & accurate. The winter season schedule is likely to be considerably smaller.
