British Airways to launch flights between Gatwick and Canada

Article content

5 September 2017 by Simon Langley

Starting May 1 2018, British Airways will commence a thrice-weekly service to Toronto, making it the airline’s first Canadian route from Gatwick.

It comes after news that the British flag carrier will introduce new transatlantic services to Fort Lauderdale and San Francisco Oakland for next summer, along with flights to Las Vegas from London Gatwick to supplement its existing Heathrow route. It all follows British Airways’ multimillion-pound investment in Gatwick Airport, which included a new Club World lounge.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ director of networks and alliances, was buoyant: “Adding Toronto and Las Vegas to the summer schedule will take the number of transatlantic routes to 21, making Canada, the US and the Caribbean more accessible than ever before.”

Inspired? Take a look at our suggested itineraries below, with the glitz of Las Vegas and the international diversity of Toronto the perfect launchpads for epic road trips.
