British Airways is launching another new high rolling route from Gatwick with the start of services to Las Vegas from October 29 this year.
The three-times-a-week service will be operated by a three-cabin Boeing 777 offering a premium Club World cabin with fully flat beds.
Flights go on sale today (May 17) with return World Traveller fares from £722.
The new Gatwick route offers more choice and frequency from London airports. Together with the Heathrow service British Airways will operate 10 flights a week to Las Vegas.
Colm Lacy, British Airways’ head of commercial Gatwick, said: “Las Vegas has proved to be an incredibly popular year-round destination from Heathrow so we are delighted to now be able to offer the route from Gatwick as well.
“This is the kind of destination our leisure customers at Gatwick are looking for and it will complement our existing USA and longhaul leisure network.”
Return flights start from £722 in World Traveller, £1100 in World Traveller Plus and £3550 in Club World, and are available to book now on www.ba.com.
