BA has recently announced a number of schedule changes to some of its short-haul routes from London Heathrow and Gatwick:

London Heathrow – Gothenburg

From 25 October 2015, BA will add a year round third daily flight on this route which will operate at the following times until 27 March 2016:

Flight BA802 Depart London Heathrow 19:15 – Arrive Gothenburg 22:15
Flight BA803 Depart Gothenburg 08:00 – Arrive London Heathrow 09:15

This is what’s known as a “night stop” which means it is timed for an early morning departure from Gothenburg.

London Gatwick – Bodrum

This twice weekly, summer seasonal, route to Bodrum in Turkey will now end on Monday 19 October 2015, instead of Monday 2 November 2015, as was planned.

This means that flights BA2566 and BA2567 are cancelled on 22, 26, 29 October and 2 November. Alternative flights to Dalaman and Istanbul, with no onward connections, are available for affected passengers.

London Gatwick – Dubrovnik

The Monday departure from London Gatwick to Dubrovnik in Croatia will be cancelled from 26 October 2015 (flights BA2678 and BA2679).

BA will continue operate the route on other days. However, the Friday departure will also be cancelled between 8 January 2016 and 5 February 2016.

London Gatwick – Nice

BA will reduce its frequency on this route from 14 to 12 flights a week from 22 November 2015. Flights BA2622 and BA2623 will be cancelled on Wednesdays and Sundays.

It is likely that there will be further schedule and route announcements over the next couple of months in advance of the launch of the Winter timetable on 25 October 2015.

As we have remarked before, British Airways has long earned itself the moniker “London Airways” for the fact that it does not fly internationally from any UK city other than London.

The one exception are routes operated by its franchise partner Sun Air which flies from Manchester to Billund and Gothenburg.

Another new route launched by Sun-Air is Cambridge to Gothernburg. We know Cambridge strictly isn’t London, but many airports have been flexible in this regard!

This route launches on 2 March 2015 and operates once a day on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The outbound flight originates in Manchester, which is also where the inbound flight terminates.
