It’s not surprising all British Airways flights coming in and out of Gatwick are cancelled. The Foreign and Commonwealth advice to UK nationals warns against all but essential international travel. ‘Stay Home’ are the words being echoed across the world, so it’s clear the travel industry is going to suffer for a while. But when will British Airways be up and running again from Gatwick?
A spokesperson for British Airways said the airline will continue to carry out essential functions such as maintenance, towing and cleaning in order to be ready to start up again with short notice.
In a statement, British Airways also said: “Due to the considerable restrictions and challenging market environment, like many other airlines, we will temporarily suspend our flying schedule at Gatwick.
“We are contacting affected customers to discuss their options.”
From now on, Gatwick is closing one of its terminals and its runway will only be open for scheduled flights between 2pm and 10pm.
British Airways is still operating some flights from Heathrow, which is its main hub.
The reason for this is to allow travellers stuck abroad to make it back to the UK as soon as possible.
