British Airways (BA) is set to increase the number of services running between Gatwick Airport and the Caribbean because of high demand.
From March 2011, services to Barbados will increase to 12 per week (from ten), Antigua services will increase to six each week (from five) and flights to St Lucia will run daily.
The carrier is also due to launch a new service to Cancun in Mexico next month, which will run twice a week through the winter months, before increasing to three flights each week in March. Cancun is “already proven to become a steady customer favourite”, according to the airline.
Some 15 destinations in the Caribbean are now on offer from BA.
BA also said it is planning to up the number of transatlantic services it runs to Tampa, Florida and will begin operating daily, direct services to Sao Paulo, Brazil and the Argentinean capital Buenos Aires next year.
In terms of its short-haul schedule, BA is due to launch a new service from Heathrow Airport to Gothenburg in Sweden next month, which will run twice daily from Terminal 5.
