Many of British Airways’ flights are being considered for relocation from Heathrow Airport to Gatwick Airport

In order to increase the number of aircraft based there, the airline is considering an expansion that would see it double its operations out of London’s second-largest airport.

The airline will make the change, increasing the number of aircraft based at Gatwick from the current 14 to between 24 and 28 in the coming years. It comes after ongoing disagreements with Heathrow Airport over a number of issues in recent months led British Airways to move its operations elsewhere.

The change will allow the airline to significantly expand its presence while also diverting some routes from Terminal 5 at London Heathrow. According to a source within the airline, “Our growth will be at Gatwick rather than Heathrow for now,” the company’s future goals are crystal clear.

Due to Covid, British Airways had to leave London Gatwick for two years, but it is now fully operational again, with its own operations and a recently launched subsidiary called EuroFlyer. With up to 28 new aircraft, the carrier may now be considering a larger presence at the airport with a single runway and adding more long-haul routes by the summer.
