CRAWLEY, England – British Airways flights to the popular Spanish city of Malaga have returned to Gatwick Airport.

The flights have now moved back from Heathrow and have doubled in frequency, with up to four daily flights on selected days. This will increase to 27 flights a week from June 2011.

Malaga is the gateway to the southern Spanish sun resorts and the daily flights are timed to give customers maximum flexibility when making their travel plans.

As well as its title of golf capital of Spain the region is also renowned for its wine and olive oil, beautiful beaches, luxury resorts, nature reserves and landmarks and museums.

The Malaga flights last operated from Gatwick in summer 2009.

Colm Lacy, British Airways head of commercial Gatwick, said: “We are delighted to be increasing the number of flights to Malaga from 14 services a week and moving the flight back from Heathrow to Gatwick. Malaga is an important route for our customers and we are delighted to add it to the excellent shorthaul network we have at Gatwick.

“With 29 destinations across Europe, British Airways Gatwick provides our customers with choice of destinations from sea and sand holidays in Thessaloniki to romantic breaks in Venice, wine tasting in Bordeaux or take in some comedy and culture at the Edinburgh festival.”

British Airways operates to a total of 47 domestic, shorthaul and worldwide destinations perfect for Florida and holidays in the Caribbean from Gatwick and carries over four and a half million customers a year through the airport. British Airways is increasing frequency on some of its Caribbean routes this summer and is also increasing flights to Pisa from seven to 14 a week. In November this year, the airline is also planning to move its flights to Mauritius from Heathrow to Gatwick.
