easyJet is to launch a new route from London Gatwick to Dusseldorf.
The airline will fly to the city up to twice daily from Saturday 9 February 2019. The precise flight times vary by day, but on weekdays there are early morning and early evening departures from Gatwick.
Dusseldorf is also a convenient means of visiting Cologne, which easyJet does not serve from Gatwick, as you can catch a train from Dusseldorf airport to the city.
easyJet has also confirmed that it will suspend London Gatwick – Aberdeen from Friday 8 February 2019. easyJet will however continue to fly to Aberdeen daily from London Luton. This is a route whose performance seems inextricably linked to the health of oil industry traffic.
British Airways’ Galleries lounge in Munich has closed today, Thursday 1 November 2018.
The reason given for the closure is a redevelopment of the airport. The lounge was refurbished relatively recently in the “Galleries” format.
Passengers travelling in Club Europe and BA Executive Club Silver and Gold cardholders can use a newly opened third party lounge “Airport Lounge World”.
Set across two levels, the lounge promises views of the airport apron, complimentary hot and cold food, soft and alcoholic drinks, and showers.
Passengers not eligible to access the lounge by virtue of cabin or frequent flyer status can also purchase access from €48 per person.
The lounge is located after security. Passengers are advised to turn left after security and walk towards a lift signposting the lounge, which will arrive directly at the lounge entrance. The lounge is open from 06:00 to 23:00 daily.
British Airways is to launch a new route from London City to Munich.
The airline will fly to Munich up to three times daily from Saturday 16 February 2019. Flights will be operated with Embraer E190 aircraft.
This will be the only direct flight from London City to Munich. The BA press release specifically refers to one BA corporate client Siemens welcoming the route, which suggests they may have provided guarantees to secure the route.
BA is also due to launch a new route from London City to Rome from November. These new routes are enabled by the addition of four new Embraer aircraft and further route announcements are expected. Full details of BA’s route network at London City is available at ba.com
Here is the timetable. As BA also flies from Heathrow to Munich up to 7 times daily it is of course possible to “mix and match” London departure and arrival airports, if that is convenient.
British Airways has launched a new winter seasonal route from London Gatwick to Cologne.
The airline will fly to Cologne four times weekly on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday from Friday 16 November 2018 to Friday 29 March 2019. The exact flight times vary widely by day. This will be the only direct route between London Gatwick and Cologne.
It’s worth noting that Cologne is very easily reached by train from Dusseldorf airport. Therefore, it should be easy to “mix and match” this route with BA’s six daily flights between London Heathrow and Dusseldorf, if convenient.
BA also serves Friedrichshafen and Nuremburg on a winter seasonal basis at Gatwick. Please see here for BA’s Gatwick winter schedule. Further route announcements may be made over the next few weeks.
BA has launched a new winter seasonal route from London Gatwick to Nuremberg.
The flight from Gatwick to Nuremberg airport will operate for just five weeks from Thursday 30 November 2017 to Sunday 7 January 2018. The route is then scheduled to resume on Thursday 29 November 2018.
Flights operate four times weekly on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday by an Airbus A319 aircraft in a two class (Club Europe business class and EuroTraveller economy) configuration.
As is often the case for BA short-haul flights at Gatwick, the precise flight times vary by both day and week.
However, flights typically leave London Gatwick at around 4-5pm and return from Nuremberg at around 8-9pm. The flight numbers are BA2660 for the outbound and BA2661 for the inbound.
