British Airways have announced that they are to increase the number of flights from Gatwick to several destinations around the world, including the Caribbean, as part of their long term objective to raise the frequency of long-haul leisure routes. A move that will give thousands of holidaymakers the chance to experience Caribbean holidays for the first time.
Richard Bray of online travel specialists Travelmatch says: “British Airways’ decision to step-up the number of flights to the Caribbean will make the area much more accessible for anyone who’s thinking about indulging in some winter sun this year. This will open the region up to a number of travellers, who will have the chance to explore an area that they might have not otherwise thought about going to.”
The British Airways flights, which will include an increased number of weekly flights to destinations like Antigua and St Lucia, opening up the availability of Aruba holidays to British consumers. But it’s flights to Sir Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados that will see the most changes over the coming weeks as BA flights to Barbados are set to more than double in total, from 10 to 21 a week.
Bray continues: “Customers looking to book flights to Barbados will be in for a pleasant surprise this winter, as BA have decided to put on so many extra flights to the region just in time for the early part of the tourist season in November and December. So it’s the perfect time to book holidays to Barbados as travellers can then experience the true magic of what the island can offer, from white sandy beaches, to fine dining and rich history, without having to deal with the associated stresses of the peak tourist season.”
