British Airways has launched a new route from London Gatwick to Vancouver.
BA will fly from Gatwick to Vancouver from Friday 19 May 2023. Flights will operate daily, except on Tuesdays.
This will complement BA’s existing year round service between Heathrow and Vancouver. This normally operates with an Airbus A380 during the peak season, but this has not been scheduled yet for 2023.
In truth, the Heathrow service with an A380 or an A350 / Boeing 777 fitted with the Club Suite will be preferable.
Also bear in mind the inbound flight to Gatwick does leave Vancouver relatively early at 15:25 these can be hard going in terms of getting to sleep on board.
In other BA transatlantic developments, BA will reinstate flights between Gatwick and Las Vegas from Sunday 26 March 2023. These will operate three times weekly.
BA has also extended its day flight from Newark to London Heathrow to year-round.
